Ernest Tubb – Games People Play lyrics

Oh the games people now every night and every day now
Never meanin' what they say now never sayin' what they mean
So 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 dee de dee
I'm 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
Oh 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
Lotten da la da da da...
[ guitar ]
People walkin' up to ya singing glory hallelujah
Then they're tryin' to sock it to you in the name of the Lord
They're gonna teach you how to meditate read your horoscope and cheat your fate
And 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 grand 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 and you don't give a lot
Lotten da la da da da...
Yes I'm talkin' bout you and me and the games people play
