E E E B7
Oh the games people play now, every night and every day now
A B7 E
Never meaning what they say now, never saying what they mean
 
E B7
And they wile away the hours, in their i-vory towers
B7 A B7 E
Till they're covered up with flowers in the back of a black limousine
 
Chorus
E E
La-n-da dada daa da da
E B7
La-n-da dada daa da dee
A
Talking 'bout you and me
B7 E
And the games people play
 
E B7
Oh we make one another cry, break a heart, and then we say goodbye
A B7 E
Cross our hearts and we hope to die, that the other was to blame
 
B7
Neither one will give in, so we gaze at an eight by ten
A B7 E
Thinking 'bout the things that might have been, it's a dirty rotten shame
 
Chorus
 
E B7
People walking up to you, singing glory hallelujah
A B7 E
And they're trying to sock it to you, in the name of the Lord
 
B7
They're gonna teach you how to meditate, read your horoscope, cheat your faith
A B7 E
And furthermore to hell with hate, come on and get on board
 
Chorus
 
E B7
Look around, tell me what you see, what's a happening to you and me
A B7 E
God grant me the serenity, to remember who I am
 
B7
Cause you've given up your sanity, for your pride and your vanity
A B7 E
Turn your back on humanity, and you don't give a damn
 
Chorus
