    Lyrics

    If it's games you want, I've played a few
    Let me say up front, I'll lose to you, I can see you're a beginner
    Well beginner's luck runs out, you think you're on a winner
    Let me tell ya, the winning's not what it's all about

    You see, it's about the losing
    Oh, again it's about the losing
    Can't rest, rest until I'm losing

    First you feel hungry then you're thirsty too
    Then a desperate feeling comes over you
    You think you can beat what no one has before
    And then you start to cheat before you know it you're back for more

    You see, it's about the losing
    Can't stop when I'm at the top, yeah, it's about the losing
    Every time I win, I have to start again
    I can't rest, rest until I'm losing, no I can't rest, rest until I'm losing

    A bluff's about as good as the getting will get
    You see in this neighborhood we're all in debt
    A little more money, a little more fame
    Who amongst us, if anybody wouldn't risk it all to stay in the game

    You see, it's about the losing
    I can't stop when I'm at the top, oh yeah it's about the losing
    Every time I win, I have to start again
    I can't rest, rest until I'm losing, I can't rest, rest until I'm losing
    Oh I can't rest, rest until I'm losing

    It's about the losing
    It's about the losing
    It's about the losing
    It's about the losing
