"Games People Play" as written by and Joe South....
Oh, the games people now, every night and every day now
Never meaning what they say now, never saying what they mean
Oh, they wile away the hours in their ivory towers
Till they're covered up with flowers in the back of a black limousine

Lotten da, la da da da, lotten da, la a da da dee
Talkin' 'bout you and me and the games people play

Oh, 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
People walking up to ya singing, "Glory Hallelujah"
And they're tryin' to sock it to ya in the name of the Lord

Lotten da, la da da da, lotten da, la a da da dee
Talkin' 'bout you and me and the games people play

Oh, look around and tell me what you see, what's happening to you and me
God grant me the serenity to remember who I am
Some give up their sanity for their pride and their vanity
Turn their back on humanity and they don't give a da da da da

Lotten da, la da da da, lotten da, la a da da dee
Talkin' 'bout you and me and the games people play
