Chess In Concert – The Arbiter lyrics

[Verse 1]
The Arbiter:
I've a duty as a referee
At the start of a match
On behalf of all our sponsors
I must welcome you
Which I do there's a catch:
I don't care if you're a champion,
No one messes with me.
I am ruthless in upholding
What I know is right,
Black or white, as you'll see.

[Chorus]
Soloists:
I'm on the case, I'm on the case,
Can't be fooled. Can't be fooled.
Any objection Any objection
Is overruled. Is overruled.
Yes, I'm the Arbiter
And I know best.

Soloists:
He's impartial,
Don't push him,
He's unimpressed.

The Arbiter: Soloists:
You got your tricks, You got your tricks,
Good for you, Good for you,
But there's no gambit But there's no gambit
I don't see through. I don't see through.
Oh, I'm the Arbiter,
I know the score.

The Arbiter & Soloists:
From square one
I'll be watching all 64
.

[Verse 2]
The Arbiter:
If you're thinking
Of the kind of thing
That we've seen in the past
Chanting gurus, walkie-talkies,
Walkouts, hypnotists,
Tempers, fists,
Not so fast.

[Verse 3]
This is not the start
Of World War Three--
No political ploys.
I think both your
Constitutions are terrific,
So know you know,
Be good boys.

[Chorus]
Soloists:
I'm on the case, I'm on the case,
Can't be fooled. Can't be fooled.
Any objection Any objection
Is overruled. Is overruled.
Yes, I'm the Arbiter
And I know best.

Soloists:
He's impartial,
Don't push him,
He's unimpressed.

The Arbiter: Soloists:
You got your tricks, You got your tricks,
Good for you, Good for you,
But there's no gambit But there's no gambit
I don't see through. I don't see through.
Oh, I'm the Arbiter,
I know the score.

The Arbiter & Soloists:
From square one
I'll be watching all 64.

[Outro]
The Arbiter:
Oh, I'm the Arbiter,
I know the score.

The Arbiter & Soloists:
From square one
I'll be watching all 64.

    This is the arbiter introducing him self and saying how he won't be biased to either side and how he won't stand for any techniques used to stool the game saying" if you're thinking Of the kind of thing That we've seen in the past Chanting gurus, walkie-talkies, Walkouts, hypnotists, Tempers, fists, Not so fast." It also shows how he won't stand for interference from political parties or countries.
