Tim Rice – The Arbiter (Chess) lyrics

[ARBITER]
I've a duty as the referee
At the start of the 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

I'm on the case
Can't be fooled
Any objection
Is overruled
Yes I'm the Arbiter and I know best

[CHORUS]
He's impartial, don't push him, he's unimpressed

[ARBITER]
You got your tricks
Good for you
But there's no gambit I don't see through
Oh I'm the Arbiter I know the score

[CHORUS]
From square one he'll be watching all 64

[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

This is not the start of World War Three
No political ploys
I think both your constitutions are terrific so
Now you know -- be good boys

I'm on the case
Can't be fooled
Any objection
Is overruled
Yes I'm the Arbiter and I know best

[CHORUS]
He's impartial, don't push him, he's unimpressed

[ARBITER]
You got your tricks
Good for you
But there's no gambit I don't see through
Oh I'm the Arbiter I know the score

[CHORUS]
From square one he'll be watching all 64

[ARBITER]
Yes I'm the Arbiter I know the score

[CHORUS]
From square one he's watching all 64
