Quoted from o-din:

Sure, but "Bally Table King" was penned in 1968 and is included in the lyrics of both versions of Pinball Wizard.
I am yet to hear any version that says "Gottlieb Table King" or even Williams or Chicago Coin Table King.

Decca's lawyers asked for clearance for the "Bally table king" lyric from Bally, and Bally ignored the letter completely.

True story.
