Games People Play

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


And they wile away the hours

In their ivory towers

Till they're covered up with flowers 

In the back of a black limousine



La-da da da da da da da

La-da da da da da de

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 give in

So we gaze at our eight by ten

Thinking 'bout the things that might have been

 It's a dirty rotten shame


Repeat Chorus


People walking up to you

Singing glory hallelulia

And they're tryin to sock it to you

In the name of the Lord


They're gonna teach you how to meditate

Read your horoscope, cheat your faith

And further more to hell with hate

Come on and get on board


Repeat Chorus


Look around tell me what you see

What's happening to you and me

God grant me the serenity

To remember who I am


Cause you've given up your sanity

For your pride and your vanity

Turns you sad on humanity

And you don't give a da da da da da
