GAMES PEOPLE PLAY
Words and Music by Joe South

Oh, the games people play now,
Ev'ry night and ev'ry day now,
Never meaning what they say now,
Never saying' what they mean.
And they while away the hours
In their ivory towers,
'Till they're covered up with flowers
In the back of a black limousine.

CHORUS: La, da, da, da, da, da, da.
La, da, da, da, da, da, dee.
Talking 'bout you and me and the games people play.

Oh, we make one another cry;
Break a heart then we say goodbye,
Cross our hearts and we hope to die,
That the other was to blame.
Neither one will ever give in,
So we gaze at an eight by ten,
Thinking 'bout the things that might have been.
It's a dirty rotten shame. CHORUS

People walking up to you,
Singing Glory Hallelujah!
And they're trying to sock it to you
In the name of the Lord.
They gonna teach you how to meditate,
Read your horoscope, cheat your fate,
And furthermore to hell with hate.
Come on, get on board. CHORUS

Look around. Tell me what you see.
What's happening to you and me?
God grant me the serenity
To remember who I am.
'Cause you're giving up your sanity,
For your pride and your vanity.
Turn your back on humanity,
And you don't give a da, da, da, da, da. CHORUS

Many thanks for the words. Now all I have to do is to relearn it for wednesday night. At least I should manage the Chorus! Thanks again

Not a song that will make its way into my repertoire - as 'Rose Garden' (Yyaaawwwwnnnn), but still ... there might be some time I need it for some strange reason, until then it will be well-saved on my hard disk!

Thank you.

I know it's long after the discussion, but for what it's worth, I always thought GPP was a great song...then and now. It's in my repetoire. Joe South is a great songwriter. Doc Williams
