The name of the game,
It's not about money,
It's not about fame
You are what you are
That's the name of the game

Hook your feelings up to a power station
Let your feelings broadcast across the nation, hey

Stand up!

Maybe a fool takes a fortune by chance
Maybe the world has lost it's romance
But you've got to try to keep dancing
The dance of the hearts

The name of the game,
It's not about money, not about fame
You are what you are
That's the name of the game

It's the name of the game
In love and emotion
The beat is the same
You are what you are
That's the name of the game

I don't need to be the king of the jungle
Or the queen of the hearts
Cause people try to take you and make you over
Into something you're not

Stand up!

Tell your teacher tell your summer affair
The power is yours, the magic is there
It's at your command
So don't let it slip through your hands

The name of the game,
It's not about money,
Not about fame
You are what you are
That's the name of the game

Headlines, party lines,
The only sense it makes
Is that it takes all kinds

Old friends, no friends,
The dance of the heart never ends
The dance of the heart never ends, it never ends

It's not about the money
It's not about the fame
Material to the spiritual world

Stand up!

Maybe a fool makes a fortune by chance
Maybe the world has lost it's romance
But you've got to keep on dancing
The dance of the hearts
Keep on dancing the dance of the hearts

The name of the game,
It's not about money, not about fame
You are what you are
That's the name of the game.

It's the name of the game
In love and emotion,
Yet the beat is the same
You are what you are
That's the name of the game

It's the name of the game
In love and emotion,
Yet the beat is the same
You are what you are
That's the name of the game
