Games People Play
The Spinners Lyrics


Can't get no rest, don't know how I work all day
When will I learn memories get in the way
I walk around, I can't hear a sound, folks talkin' loud
But I don't see at all
I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't

(Know where to go, it's hopeless so
I guess I'll leave it alone)

Well I spent all the day fixin' up to go somewhere
Thought I was late, and I found she wasn't there
I guess I'll find love, peace of mind, some other time
But I still have today
I gotta get away, gotta get away, I don't

(Know where to go, it's hopeless so
I guess I'll leave it alone)

Games people play, night or day they're just not matchin'
What they should do, keeps me feelin' blue
Been down too long, right, wrong, I just can't stop it
Spendin' all day thinking just of you

(Twelve forty-five) headed for the subway home
(I took my time) 'cause I felt so all alone
(Not far away) I heard a funny sound, took a look around
And then I (could see her face)
Smilin' as she came, callin' out my name, so I

(Know where to go, we'll take it slow
I guess I'll call it a day)

Games people play, night or day they're just not matchin'
What they should do, keeps me feelin' blue
Been down too long, right, wrong, I just can't stop it
Spendin' all day thinking just of you

Games people play, night or day they're just not matchin'
What they should do, keeps me feelin' blue

'Can't get no rest
Don't know how I work all day
When will I learn?
Memories get in the way
I walk around
I can't hear a sound
folks talking' loud, but I
don't see at all
I gotta get away
gotta get away, I don't

Know where to go
It's hopeless so
guess I'll leave it alone
well I

Spent all my day
Fixing' up to go somewhere
Thought I was late
And I found she wasn't there
I guess I'll find
Love, peace of mind
some other time, but I
still have today
I gotta get away
gotta get away, I don't

Know where to go
It's hopeless so
I guess I'll leave it alone

(chorus)
Games people play
Night or day they're
just not matching'
What they should do
Keeps me feeling' blue
Been down too long
Right, wrong
I just can't stop it
Spending' all day
Thinking just of you

Twelve forty-five
Headed for the subway home
I took my time
'Cause I felt so all alone

Not far away
I heard a funny sound
took a look around, and I
could see her face
Smile as she came,
calling' out my name, so I

Know where to go
We'll take it slow
Guess I'll call it a day'

(chorus to fade)

I didn't realize at the time as a kid how great our music was in the 1970's. Forgive me.

@richard courchene I was a kid in the 70s and I remember all the 70s music. It was the only good music decade of my life.

I was 6 years old when this came out. Now 51 and still love. The Spinners are one of the best groups ever!!

Brad Lewis

Spinners, along with Earth Wind and Fire, the two best R&B groups of the 1970s! Earth Wind and Fire happen to be one of my three favorites ever (Foreigner and ELO the others)

@USMC Vet thank you for your service, sir. I see you have awesome memories. Definitely great times, back then.

I was a 21 yr old United States Marine stationed at Camp LeJeune NC. Memories of an old girlfriend. Those were the days. Id stay in the 70s even repeat the 4 yrs in the USMC.
