Games People Play
Games People Play - F Joe South
Oh the games people play now,
Every night and every day now,
Never meaning what they say now,
Never saying what they mean.
So they while away the hours,
In their ivory towers,
Till they're covered up with flowers,
In the back of a black limousine.
Ch. Lat-n-da dat-n-da da,
Lat-n-da dat-n-da di di,
Talking 'bout you and me,
And the games people play.
Oh, we make one another cry,
Break a heart then we say goodbye,
Cross our hearts and we hope to die,
That the other was to blame.
But neither one will ever give in,
So we gaze at an eight by ten,
Thinking 'bout the things that might have been,
And it's a dirty rotten shame.
People walking up to ya,
Shouting glory hallelujah,
Then they try to sock it to ya,
In the name of the Lord.
They're gonna teach you how to meditate,
Read your horoscope, cheat your fate,
And furthermore, to hell with hate,
Come on and get on board.
