Lynn Anderson
Games People Play

Oh, the games people now
Every night and every day now
Never meaning what they say now
Never saying what they mean

So they wile away the hours
In their ivory towers
'Til they're covered up with flowers
In the back of a black limousine

Lotten da la da da da, lotten da la a dee de dee
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

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

Lotten da la da da da, lotten da la a dee de dee
Talking bout you and me and the games people play

People walking up to you
Singing 'Glory hallelujah'
And they're trying to sock it to you
In the name of the Lord

They're gonna teach you how to meditate
Read your horoscope and cheat your fate
And furthermore forget about hate
Come on and get on board

Lotten da la da da da, lotten da la a dee de dee
Talking bout you and me and the games people play

Look around and tell me what you see
What's happened to you and to me
God grand me the serenity
Just to remember who I am

'Cause you've given up a sanity
For a pride and our vanity
Turn our back on humanity
And we don't give a da da da

Lotten da la da da da, lotten da la a dee de dee
Talking bout you and me and the games people play
