GAMES PEOPLE PLAY



"Games People Play" is a 1980 song by the Alan Parsons Project. It peaked at #16 in March 1981 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart as well as #18 on Cash Box. It appears on the album The Turn of a Friendly Card and was sung by Lenny Zakatek.
The song shows striking similarities to the 5th movement (the Bourrée) of Johann Sebastian Bach 's Lute Suite in E minor, BWV 996.

"Games People Play"

Where do we go from here now that all other are growin' up
And how do we spend our lives if there's no one to lend us a hand

I don't wanna live here no more, I don't wanna stay
Ain't gonna spend the rest of my life, Quietly fading away

Games people play, You take it or you leave it
Things that they say, Honor Brite
If I promise you the Moon and the Stars, Would you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Where do we go from here now that all of the have grown up
And how do we spend our time knowin' nobody gives us a damn

I don't wanna live here no more, I don't wanna stay
Ain't gonna spend the rest of my life, Quietly fading away

Games people play, You take it or leave it
Things that they say, Just don't make it right
If I'm tellin' you the truth right now, do you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Games people play, You take it or you leave it
Things that they say, Honor Brite
If I promise you the Moon and the Stars, Would you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

Games people play, You take it or leave it
Things that they say, Just don't make it right
If I'm tellin' you the truth right now, do you believe it
Games people play in the middle of the night

    Hi this is the only one I'm familiar with. I like it all the way thru. I think they had another that might have been popular called "I Robot" I really need to explore them a little more.
