It's time to play the game
Time to play the game! Hahaha

It's all about the game and how you play it.
All about control and if you can take it.
All about your debt and if you can pay it.
It's all about pain and who's gonna make it.

I am the game, you don't want to play me.
I am control, no way you can change me.
I am heavy debt, no way you can pay me.
I am the pain and I know you can't take me.

Look over your shoulder, ready to run.
Like a good little bitch, from a smokin gun.
I am the game and I make the rules.
So move on out here and die like a fool.
Try to figure out what my move's gonna be.
Come on over sucker, why don't you ask me?
Don't you forget that the price you can pay
Cause I am the game and I want to play

It's time to play the game, hahaha
Time to play the game!

It's all about the game and how you play it.
It's all about control and if you can take it.
It's all about your debt and if you can pay it.
It's all about pain and who's gonna make it.

I am the game, you don't want to play me.
I am control, there's no way you can change me.
I am your debt, and you know you can't pay me.
I am your pain and I know you can't take me.

Play the game
Your gonna be the same
Your gonna change your name
Your gonna die in flames

Hahaha
Time to play the game!
It's time to play the game
It's time to play the game
It's time to play the game
Time to play the game! Hahaha

    General CommentMmm about that stupid form of entertainment...

    Good lord, I LOVE wrestling.

    Anyway, I think you can really see this song as essential to Triple H's character in that he is someone who is always in control and makes you play by his rules. It is also certainly one way to understand the song: the person being dealt with is no laughing matter. If you don't take him seriously you will lose.

    General Comment"As for the haters, who cares, it's just a stupid sport that only ignorant idiots watch and are entertained by (those under 18 are excused because they don't know any better)."

    Oh the irony. You basically say "haters are pointless" then identify yourself as a hater in the same sentence.

    Anyway, on topic of the song, I really don't think it's about much more than HHH's character. It's simple but good lord does it kick ass.

    Song Meaningthis song has no meaning i think this song was just another song that motorhead wrote for Hunter and that it has no meaning but if it did i would be:

    Hunter Hearst Helmsley IS The Game there is no stopping him he is Smackdowns Elite!

    "I am the game and I make the rules,
    So move on out, and you can die like a fool."

    you cant tell him what to do ... Hunter tells YOU what to do

    So move on out, and you can die like a fool."

    or let me make a correction

    and you can die like a fool."....get out of his way or not ur still gonna die!!

    General CommentI think its about the music industry and how only the tough survive.
    Its always been that way and nothing will change
    If you are not tough enough you just get used and spat out the other side with nothing - die like a fool.

    General Commentthis is a great song, I first heard it on WWF when I was little, my grandpa loved it...The song is really just saying, "i'm tougher than you, fight me and I'll prove it!"

    General CommentFinally, some good WWF entrance music. Proably second or third behind Enter Sandman and Stone Cold's music. Triple H is one of the best ever, the music's real fitting for him. It pissed me off at Wrestlemainia 18 when they had Drowning Pool do a peice of trash cover the song, like Motorhead didnt do a good enough job the first time. Drowning Pool raped that song.

    General CommentI don' like Drowning Pool's version as much, but it still isn't a bad cover. This song is by far the best entrance music ever, this or "Glass Shatters" by Disturbed for Stone Cold. This is a great song and I just listento it for the hell of it a lot.

    General CommentThe best song suited to the best record. Just like Breaking Point's "One of a Kind" captured the essence of what RVD is about, this song does the same for HHH.
