Hmm
Summer child
And Wendy, I ain't seen for a while
Since she's been working
Trying to catch her old style
With that, I got her back
My kettle's always boiling, snow is falling
And it's truly freezing
Danny ain't been calling
He's got a family
But outside my door still says
"Welcome on the floor"

Life is just a big ol' game to me
I'd like to be number one on your team
Call me baby (baby!)
Bring me up, baby girl (baby!)
One day someone will snatch me for their lady

The buds in their blooms now
But no letters come from Lucy
She's deep in her book
Trying to bring down the words
But she's on my mind profusely, my sister Lucy

The birds and the bees, yeah
They do their thing in trees
While we're hustling
Rosalind's playing the game of life
We're looking in the dark light
For the answers to the questions, like

Life is just a big ol' game to me
I'd like to be number one on your team
Call me baby (baby!)
Bring me up baby (baby!)
One day someone will snatch me for their lady (watch me now)
I could never be your number two, yeah
'Cause when you're not there
I'm sure someone is loving you
And I can't have it
I won't have it, now
'Cause one day someone will snatch me for their lady, oh yeah

You know, sometimes
See, I find myself confused
It's always "why this" and "why that"
See, have you ever heard the saying "it's just a game"?
Well, then one more "why"
Why can't I start playing?

Life is just a big ol' game to me
I'd like to be number one on your team
Call me baby (baby!)
Baby (baby!)
Ooh, ah, yeah

('Cause I could never) I could never be your number two
'Cause when I'm not there
I'm sure someone is loving you
And I can't have it, no (yeah, yeah)
I won't have it, no, no
Oh, oh, oh, yeah

Life is just a big ol' game to me (it's a big ol' game, yeah)
I'd like to be number one on your team
Call me baby (baby!)
Baby (baby!)
Ooh, ah, yeah

I could never be your
Your number two
'Cause someone else will come and start loving you
And I can't have it
I told you I won't have it, now
Oh, life is just a big old game to me
Hmm-mmm
