Captain Walker
Didn't come home
His unborn child,
Will never know him
Believe him missing
With a number of men
Don't expect
To see him again.

It's a boy Mrs. Walker it's a boy.
It's a boy Mrs. Walker it's a boy.

A son! A son! A son!

    A lot of people seem to think this is just some random song about a guy who is really good at pinball.

    It is actually about a real kid who was blind and was one of the best pinball players in the world. A few years later his sight came back and everyone thought he lied about being blind from the start.
