    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
    They just 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
    Kotten da la a dee de dee
    I'm a 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 one's to blame
    Neither one'll ever give in so we gaze at an eight by ten
    A thinkin' bout the things that might have been
    And it's a dirty dirty dirty rotten shame.

    Lotten da la da da da
    otten da la a dee de dee
    I'm a talkin' bout you and me
    And the games people play.

    --- Instrumental ---

    Now 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 to hell with hate come on and get on board.

    Lotten da la da da da
    otten da la a dee de dee
    I'm a talkin' bout you and me
    And the games people play.

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

    Lotten da la da da da
    otten da la a dee de dee
    I'm a talkin' bout you and me
    And the games people play...
