The Monkees – War Games lyrics

Did you buy your tickets for the war game?
Aren't you glad that you're sitting in the back?
For the game is deadly heavy for the players
Aren't you glad it's a spectator sport?

Can't you hear the cries?
It isn't over
Can't you smell the fear?
It's all over

If you want to play the game, you must have training
Choose your side, pick your toy, but play to win
Don't be sad if you loose it itsn't over
Choose your side and begin the game again

Can't you hear the cries?
It isn't over
Can't you smell the fear?
It's all over

You don't have to play the game if you don't want to
You can sit at home and hear it on the news
They will show you coloured pictures of the killings
They want you to feel that you're part of it too.

Can't you hear the cries?
It isn't over
Don't you smell the fear?
It's all over
It's all over
