Games People Play (Joe South)
Na na na na na na na na, na na na na
na na na na, Talk about you and me,
yeah, and the games people play.
Oh, the games people play, now, every night and
every day now, Never meaning what they say,
yeah, never saying what they mean. First you
while away your hours, in your concrete towers,
Soon you'll be covered up in flowers, in the
back of a black limousine. People walking up to
ya, singing glory hallelujah, And they try to
sock it to ya in the name of the Lord.
Then they teach you how to meditate, Read your
horoscope and change your fate, And furthermore
to hell with hate, Come on and give me some
more, and more, and more.
Turn around and look at what you see, what is
happening to you and me. God grant me the
serenity, yeah, to remember who I am. First
you've given up your sanity, for your pride and
your vanity, Turn your back on humanity, yeah,
and you don't give a dime.
