(Hicks / Clarke / Nash)
Well I heard your mother say 
what a pleasant boy you`re going with 
that I don`t mean any harm 
and I only want to play 
Though I know she`s just protecting you 
you`re just a little girl 
Well if your mother only knew the games we play 

When I take you home with me 
all the family get along with you 
Sitting all through tea 
wondering what we`re gonna do 
Leaving us alone 
the temptation`s far too strong 
If your family only knew the games we play 

Are you sure we`re getting away with this 
You cannot fool your mother or your father for long 
Only time will tell 
if they are right and we are wrong 

They know the games we play 
There`s no hiding things like this from them 
We know we`re not the first 
and we`ll never be the last 
Everybody gets hung up 
we might have to pay 
and everybody knows the games we play
