Week 121 - "E.T., Your Game Sucked for Atari"

This song is in response to the excavation of the Atari E.T. cartridges, which were dumped in a landfill in Alamogordo, New Mexico in 1983.

E.T., your game sucked for Atari and we're really very sorry.
E.T., they buried you underground, but finally you were found.
E.T., they made five million cartridges or so,
But sales of them were really very slow,
And now the public really wants to know,
Where did they all go.
E.T., your film was a blockbuster, but your game did not pass muster.
E.T., Just to make a quick buck, they released a game that sucked,
E.T., wherever in the galaxy you roam,
I think you'll really want to phone home,
To tell them how these cockeyed humans comb,
Through piles of trash to find a game that no one even really wants to own.
