The Lyrics

La-ra-da-la-ra-da-la
la-ra-da-la-ra-da-la-dee
Talking 'bout you and me
and the games people played

Oh the games people play now
are different from days gone by
Some are classic, but most are 'ciao'
and my kids don't know them

We used to play them for hours
Chess with kings, pawns and towers
Bridge, canasta, they were ours
As was backgammon too

La-ra-da-la-ra-da-la
la-ra-da-la-ra-da-la-dee
Talking 'bout you and me
and the games people played

Oh we played the Monopoly
Slew the monsters in the D&D
And the Rolemaster RPG
was our favourite game

Computer games we too did play
Pac-Man, Zaxxon you can all name
But the of action games of today
they're all shoot, kill and maim

La-ra-da-la-ra-da-la
la-ra-da-la-ra-da-la-dee
Talking 'bout you and me
and the games people played

Then there was the Warhammer
with those knights, they were slammer
and the High Elves with glamous
and the dwarfs, Chaos, Orcs

Some those games are familiar
some different, some similar
But the console game-liars
seems most are but dorks

La-ra-da-la-ra-da-la
la-ra-da-la-ra-da-la-dee
Talking 'bout you and me
and the games people played

Repeat Chorus

Look around tell me what you see
What's happening to you and me
Look back in the history
And remember what we played

Do you remember all the RPGs
Board games and the figurines
Or remember the arcadies?
What do you play now today?

La-ra-da-la-ra-da-la
la-ra-da-la-ra-da-la-dee
Talking 'bout you and me
and the games people played

I've always loved games...Monopoly, the King...but I sense that most women don't like them..I see it on "Women For Men" ads on Craigslist...They always stress, "No Games!!"
