    Lyrics

    (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...
