"Games People Play" as written by and Joe South....
Oh the games people now every night and every day now
Never meanin' what they say now never sayin' what they mean oh no
Well they wile away the hours in their ivory towers
Till they're covered up with flowers in the back of a black limousine oh yeah

Lotten da la da da da lotten da la a dee de dee

Talkin' bout you and me and the games people play oh now
Well we make one another cry break a heart then we say goodbye
Cross our hearts and we hope to die that the other one's to blame

But neither one will ever give in so we gaze at an eight by ten
Thinkin' bout the things that might have been
And it's a dirty rotten shame yes it does

People walkin' up to ya shouting glory hallelujah
Well they want to sock it to ya in the name of the Lord
Gonna teach you how to meditate read your horoscope and cheat your fate
Furthermore to hell with hate come on and get on board

Lotten da la da da da...

Look around and tell me what you see what's happened to you and me
God give me the serenity to remember who I am
Cause you've given up your sanity for your pride and your vanity
Turn your back on humanity cause you don't give a do de dee

Lotten da la da da da...
