The Game of Love
LaVern Baker Lyrics


The purpose of a man is to love a woman,
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man,
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love (love), love (love), la la la la la love

It started long ago in the Garden of Eden
When Adam said to Eve, baby, you're for me
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love (love), love (love), la la la la la love
Come on baby 'cause the time is right
Love your daddy with all your might
Put your arms around me, hold me tight
Play the game of love

The purpose of a man is to love a woman,
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man,
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love (love), love (love), la la la la la love

The purpose of a man is to love a woman,
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man,
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love (love), love (love), la la la la la love

Come on baby 'cause the time is right
Love your daddy with all your might
Put your arms around me, hold me tight
Play the game of love

The game of love (love), love (love), la la la la la love
The game of love (love), love (love), la la la la la love

The game of love baby, the game of la la la la love
The game of love baby, the game of la la la la love

IM only 39 years old and I've been listening to LaVern Baker since childhood!! She was also friends with my Adopted grandmother Linda Hopkins!! WOW, talk about Two respectable ladies with hearts of gold!! Im thankful i had older parents that had this music laying around the house to expose me to an Artistic voice such as Ms. Bakers

Simply a legend--thanks for sharing!

Something about her voice--she had a unique quality to it. I'll never forget the first time I heard her on the radio. If you're feeling sad, just listen to her sing "Tweedlee Dee". Great lady!

Joy to hear this song, years ago it had been favorite.

Sweet to ear to hear.

Fantastic ! thank you - I was searching for this track for a long long time. Do you know if the studio version has ever come out on a CD ?

ausfan100

Yes, it's easy to find on at least 3 of her CDs including a dbl on Jasmine.

Back in the Day, they could actually "Sing" What a Beautiful Voice! Go Jim Dandy, Go Jim Dandy!

Love LaVern Baker and I never heard this so, thank you. Interesting thing about this tune is that I could swear that I hear Thurl Ravenscroft as the single male back-up vocal. In doing a little research, it seems that he did a number of songs with famous artists in this capacity and while I couldn't find him credited on this tune anywhere ~ I'd bet a huge bowl of Frosted Flakes that it's him. Ggggrrrrrrreeeeeaaattt!!!!
