Play The Game (Lyrics) - Matt Henshaw

Walking by the riverside I see the fishermen there in dismay
"there's note cummin' aht a the Trent today" I think I heard one of them say
There's no such thing as a harmless lie - it all comes out in the end
That's a line of the truth my friend and I'm as sure as the river bends

Standing by the Meadow Lane and I feel a warm summer breeze
Robin Hood and his merry men come whistling through the trees
Stand in Sherwood by the Major Oak; why should I feel proud?
Let's hear it for Torvill and Dean and let's play the music loud

You can Play The Game, just never lose sight of your aim
I'll Play The Game, but I will always stand by my name

Let's hear it for America speeding in on a late night train
A glorious land of liberty is here to take away all your pain
And now the bullets fly as the sun hits the sky and everybody looks the same
Because right here in the city everyone's playing the game

You can Play The Game my friend, but you must never lose sight of your aim
I'll Play The Game, but I will always stand by my name
