Oameni și jocuri

E week-end. Citesc. Chiar și declarații. Suntem lăsați să credem că toți cei ce vorbesc cred în ce spun și spun ce cred. Spectacol. Pe alocuri – amuzant. Pe alocuri – întristător. Pe alocuri – de-a dreptul grețos. Oricum – funambulesc.

Îmi amintesc de  Games People Play, cântecul lui Joe South. Cei mai mulți leagă numele cântecului  de cel al Petulei Clark.


Iată-l în câteva interpretări:

Oh the games people play now
Every night and every day now
Never meaning what they say now
Never saying what they mean

And they wile away the hours
In their ivory towers
Till they’re covered up with flowers
In the back of a black limousine

La-da da da da da da da
La-da da da da da de
Talking ’bout you and me
And the games people play

Oh we make one another cry
Break a heart then we say goodbye
Cross our hearts and we hope to die
That the other was to blame

Neither one will give in
So we gaze at our eight by ten
Thinking ’bout the things that might have been
It’s a dirty rotten shame

Repeat Chorus

People walking up to you
Singing glory hallelulia
And they’re tryin to sock it to you
In the name of the Lord

They’re gonna teach you how to meditate
Read your horoscope, cheat your faith
And further more to hell with hate
Come on and get on board

Repeat Chorus

Look around tell me what you see
What’s happening to you and me
God grant me the serenity
To remember who I am

Cause you’ve given up your sanity
For your pride and your vanity
Turns you sad on humanity
And you don’t give a da da da da da

Repeat Chorus

 Da, “God grant me the serenity/To remember who I am…”

 Duminică liniștită!
