Oh the games people play now
Every night and every day now
Never meaning what they say now
Never saying what they mean

So they while away the hours
In their ivory towers
Till they're covered up with flowers
In the back of a black limousine

I'm talking 'bout you and me
And the games people play

Oh they make one another cry
Break their hearts and they say goodbye
Cross their hearts and they hope to die
That the other was to blame

Neither one would ever give in
So they gaze at an eight by ten
Thinkin' 'bout the way it might have been
And it's a dirty rotten shame


People walkin' up to ya
Singin' 'Glory, Hallelujah"
And they try to sock it to ya
In the name of the Lord

Gonna they teach you how to meditate
Read your horoscope and cheat your fate
And the further more to hell with hate
Come on and get on board

Look around and tell me what you see
What's happening to you and me
God grant me the serenity
To just remember who I am
