INTRO

La da da da da, la da da da de
Talking about the games people play


OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies chain you know, straight across that ring and go
Roll away and circle left
Oh those games we play, 4 ladies roll away
Left allemande, do a dosado
And now those gents star left, go once around that set
Swing your own and promenade
La da da da da, la da da da de
Talking about the games people play


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Well now those heads square thru 4 hands around you do
Dosado with the corner gal
Swing thru and when you do, two boys trade, turn thru
Left allemande and weave that ring
Oh those games we play every night and day
Dosado and promenade
La da da da da, la da da da de
Talking about the games people play

Games People Play Lyrics ID: 1515

Oh the games people play now
Every night and every day now
Never meanin' what they say now
Never sayin' what they mean
So they wile away the hours
In their ivory towers
Till they're covered up with flowers
In the back of a black limousine
Latten da da da-daa da da
Latten da da da-daa de dee
Talkin' 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 one's to blame
But neither one will ever give in
So we gaze at an eight by ten
Thinkin' bout the things that might have been
And it's a dirty rotten shame
Latten da da da-daa da da
Latten da da da-daa de dee
Talkin' bout you and me and the games people play

People walkin' up to ya
Singing glory hallelujah
And they're tryin' to sock it to ya
In the name of the Lord
They're gonna teach you how to meditate
Read your horoscope and cheat your fate
And furthermore to hell with hate
Come on and get on board
Latten da da da-daa da da
Latten da da da-daa de dee
Talkin' bout you and me and the games people play

Look around and tell me what you see
What's happened to you and me
God grant me the serenity
To just remember who I am
Cause you've given up your sanity
For your pride and your vanity
Turn your back on humanity
And you don't give a da-da-da
Latten da da da-daa da da
Latten da da da-daa de dee
Talkin' bout you and me and the games people play

Lyrics by Joe South.
Recorded by Joe South; Conway Twitty.
