Tesla – Games People Play lyrics

(Joe South)

All the games people play now, every night every day now
Never meaning what they say now, never saying what they mean
While they while away the hours in their ivory towers
Till they're covered up with flowers in the back of a black limousine

Oh we make one another cry, breakin' hearts when we say goodbye
Cross our hearts say we hope to die, 'cept the other was to blame
Neither one will ever give in, so we gaze at an 8x10,
Thinkin' 'bout things that might have been, oh it's a dirty rotten shame

[Chorus:]
Ladandaladandadada, ladandaladandadadee
Talkin' 'bout you and me, and the games people play
Ladandaladandadada, ladandaladandadadee
Talkin' 'bout you and me, and the games people play

People walkin' up to ya, singin' glory hallelujah
Sayin' what the hell's it to ya, if we do it in the name of the Lord
We're gonna teach ya how to meditate
[Preach our hearts from teacher's faith]
Put them on a hell of hate, come on, let's get on board

[Chorus]

[Solo]

Look around, tell me what you see, what's happening to you and me
God grant me my serenity, to remember who I am
'Cos you're givin' up your sanity, or your pride and your vanity
Turn your back on humanity, ow, when you don't give a damn, not a damn

Ladandaladandadada, ladandaladandadadee
Talkin' 'bout you and me, and the games people play
Ladandaladandadada, ladandaladandadadee
Talkin' 'bout everybody, talkin' 'bout you, 'bout you and me
(Ladandaladandadada) you and me, (ladandaladandadadee)
I'm talkin' bout the games, the games we all play
(Ladandaladandadada) ladanda, (ladandaladandadadee) ladandadadee
All the games, talkin' bout the games people play
(Ladandaladandadada, ladandaladandadadee)
(Ladandaladandadada, ladandaladandadadee)
(Ladandaladandadada, ladandaladandadadee)
