        Many things the arcades used to get me in
        Many things the arcade used – to get me in
        Writing about them – where do I begin?
        I’d get a free snack – and a free cup of tea
        That was what the arcade staff – gave to me
        I actually offered them – some money to pay
        But they never took it – I thought it was okay
        But it wasn’t free at all – it cost me such a lot
        If I hadn’t of gone in – a banquet I could have got
        Once I got inside though – I didn’t want to leave
        I was grateful for the free things – I did receive 
        I actually thought –‘ wow – they are really cool’
        When really – were they making me look a fool?
        But I went in there – because I got something free
        ‘Cos being a CG – something free appealed to me
        I could have actually said ‘no’ – with my given voice
        But I know going in and staying in – was my choice
        I know that I only have me – that I can really blame
        And the thought of going in there – I feel the shame
        At one time I needed to go in there – to get through
        Now thankfully it is something – I don’t want to do
