  • Oh the games people now every night and every day now
    Never meanin' what they say now never sayin' what they mean
    So they wile away the hours in their ivory towers
    Till 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

    Talkin' 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
    Thinkin' bout the things that might have been and it's a dirty rotten shame
    Lotten da la da da da

    People walkin' up to ya singing glory hallelujah
    And they're tryin' to sock it to ya 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

    Look around and tell me what you see what's happened to you and to me
    God grand me the serenity to just remember who I am
    Cause you've given up a sanity for a pride and your vanity
    Turn your back on humanity and you don't give a da da da
    Lotten da la da da da
    Lotten da la da da da
