It's a game of give & take
Life's a game of give & take
Early in the morning
Get your concentration on your meditation
Take the right direction
For future destination, for future destination

Talk about your woman, give her some respect
She'll give you her devotion, not just outside emotion
Talk about your country, there's really no such thing for me
The whole world, the whole world is one big family
