Janet Jackson – The Skin Game lyrics

Oh
See you, you in there dancin?
And IЈl in here needing questions and answers

(Ha!, ha!), hey!, (ha!, ha!)
Ha!, hoo!, ha!, hoo!, ha!, hoo!, ha!

The dance is in
When theyЈqe mine
Try to learn the rules
DonЈs mind showin?
Equal chances (taught)
For our amuses
Not much can beat the odds
No excuses, letЈare play the skin game

(Ha!, ha!, ha!), hoo!, (ha!, ha!, ha!), ooh!,(ha!, ha!)

Sing it!, ha!, hoo!, ha!, (sing it!), sing it!, ha!, hoo!, (your choice), ha!

You say your set
So letЈare get started
Try to be the best
But donЈs be that smart
You know what your brother gets
No need to complain
Just figure out, that thereЈare a way to play,
To play the skin game

The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down

(Ha!, ha!, ha!), hoo!, ha!, (ha!, ha!), hoo!, (ha!, ha!) ha!, (ha!), hoo!

The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down

CanЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs
Keep a good man down

And IЈl in here needing questions and answers
(Ha!) Hoo!

The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down

(And IЈl in here needing questions and answers)

Outside lookin' in, in, in
The door is open, but you canЈs get in
SomethingЈare in the way
ItЈare a skin game (oh, just a skin game)
Just a skin game
LetЈare play the skin game (game)

Hoo!, hoo!
(Sing it for the people yaЈkl)

The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs
Keep a good man down,

CanЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, sing it!, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, canЈs, sing it!

The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, sing it!
(Sing it for the people yaЈkl)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, sing it!,
The skin game is still around, (play the skin game)
But you canЈs keep a good man down

Hoo!
Break it down, sing it!
Hoo!
Sing it!
(Sing it for the people yaЈkl)
Sing it!
(Sing it!, sing it!, sing it, sing it again!)
(Sing it again, sing it again, and again, and again, and again, and again)

The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around, sing it!,
But you canЈs keep a good man down, (play the skin game)
The skin game is still around

(See you in there dancin?
And IЈl in here needing questions and answers)
