(Joe South)

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
Lotten, da, la, a dee, de, dee
Talkin' 'bout you and me
And the games people play.

--- Instrumental ---

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
Lotten, da, la, a dee, de, dee
Talkin' '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
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, a dee, de, dee
Talkin' 'bout you and me
And the games people play.

Lotten da la da da da
Lotten, da, la, a dee, de, dee
Talkin' 'bout you and me
And the games people play...
