The Games That People Play (Whitehouse)

The Games that People Play I got a call from Sarah, an old school friend Said she was back in town, it was time we met again And I wondered how she was, so many years had passed She had always been the kind who could make things last She told me she?d been married And of the kids he?d left behind She was doing better now, him they couldn?t find She was doing better now, but Lord did it take time I met old Mr Jenkins, he always makes me smile Carrying a big old box, we stopped and talked a while He mentioned J. F. Junior, the curse and the young bride But then again he said, were millions for whom nobody cried He had a serious problem ?The damn thing went and stopped Fifty years of company," he said "of this old wooden clock Fifty years of company, the damn thing is all I got" Don?t go looking for the reasons, ?Cause in time they?ll fade away And the rules, they just keep changing everyday In the games that people play I walked into Harry?s place, to leave the day behind Saw James sitting there with something on his mind He asked me join him, which I was glad to do He was shinning like a dime, all polished up and new He had something to tell me Personal, no less He?d suggested marriage, James simply said yes He?d suggested marriage, James smiled and just said yes. Don?t go looking for the reasons, For in time they?ll fade away And the rules, they just keep changing everyday In the games that people play Step right up and take a gamble Don?t keep yourself locked away Take a chance and let the dice roll as they may In the games that people play The games people play . . . . Don?t go looking for the reasons . . . .
