It’s A Game

Lyrics

The clown came down to meet me
With a smile upon his face
He fired his starting pistol
And began the human race

There were faces all around me
They were running everywhere
But everywhere is nowhere
And nowhere isn’t there

It’s a game, a game, a game that we’re playing
Well, I don’t mind but I don’t make the rules
It’s a game, a game, a game that we’re playing
Just a game for lovers and fools

There’s snakes upon your ladder
And there’s dice upon your skirt
There’s lipstick on my collar
And there’s sweat upon my shirt

The neighbors will start talking
But you know that I don’t care
For the neighbors they are nowhere
And nowhere isn’t there

It’s a game, a game, a game that we’re playing
Well, I don’t mind but I don’t make the rules
It’s a game, a game, a game that we’re playing
Well, I don’t mind but I don’t make the rules

Just a game!

It’s a game, a game, a game that we’re playing
Well, I don’t mind but I don’t make the rules
It’s a game, a game, a game that we’re playing
Just a game for lovers and fools
