GLEE 0802
Album: Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Three
Released: May 15, 2012
By: The Who (Elton John version)
Sung by: Vocal Adrenaline
Solos: Unique
Place: 2012 Show Choir National Championship
Episode: Nationals

Pinball Wizard by The Who (Elton John version) is featured in Nationals, the twenty-first episode of Season Three. It is sung by Unique with Vocal Adrenaline singing back-up vocals.

This is the second song to be performed in their 2012 Nationals Championship Setlist, followed by Starships. The performance of this song makes the New Directions look in awe and shock as it is completely high-concept with Pinball Machines and a lot of challenging dance moves. This song, as well as Starships, earned Vocal Adrenaline the second place spot at the 2012 National Championships, while the New Directions were in first place.


Ever since I was a young boy,
I've played the silver ball.
From Soho down to Brighton
I must have played them all.
But I ain't seen nothing like him
In any amusement hall...
That deaf dumb and blind kid

Unique and Vocal Adrenaline:
Sure plays a mean pin ball!

He stands like a statue,
Becomes part of the machine.
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean.
He plays by intuition,
The digit counters fall.
That deaf dumb and blind kid

Unique and Vocal Adrenaline:
Sure plays a mean pin ball!

He's a pin ball wizard
There has to be a twist.
A pin ball wizard,
Got such a supple wrist.

('How do you think he does it?)
I don't know!
(What makes him so good?')

Well, he ain't got no distractions
Can't hear those buzzers and bells,
Don't see lights a flashin'
He plays by sense of smell.
Always has a replay,
And never tilts at all...
That deaf dumb and blind kid

Unique and Vocal Adrenaline:
Sure plays a mean pin ball.

He can't beat me now
I've always been the champ
I know every trick
No freak's gonna beat my hand

Even on my usual table,
he can beat the best.
His disciples lead him in,
and he just does the rest.

He's got crazy flipper fingers,
I never seen him fall,
That deaf, dumb, blind kid,

Unique and Vocal Adrenaline:
Sure plays a mean pinball.

He's a pinball wizard,
there has to be a twist.
A pinball wizard,
got such a supple wrist.

He's a pinball wizard,
his score's a trillion more.
A pinball wizard,
the world's new pinball lord.
He's scoring more!
He's scoring more!

I thought I was the Bally table king,
But I just handed my pinball crown to him.
To him!
To him!
