"Games People Play" as written by and Joe South....
La da da da da da da da la da da da da da da dee
Talkin' bout you and me and the games people play

All the games people play now every night and every day now
Never meaning what they say now never saying what they mean
And they while away the hours in their ivory towers
Till they're covered up with flowers in the back of a black limousine
La da da da da da...

Oh we make one another cry break a heart when we say goodbye
Cross my heart and we hope to die that the other was to blame
Either one will give in so we gaze at our eight by ten
Thinkin' bout things that might have been oh it's a dirty rotten shame
La da da da da da...

People walkin' up to ya singin' 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 faith
And further more to hell with hate come on and get on board
La da da da da da...

Look around and tell me what you see what's happening to you and me
Got grant me the serenity to remember who I am
Cause you're givin' up your sanity or your pride and your vanity
Turn your back on humanity and you don't give a damn da da da
La da da da da da...
La da da da da da...
