Lyrics:
Kindergarten
King of excuses
Sister Mary Mojo, so hard to trick
What can I say
The dog ate my homework
I could play the game
They love me anyway

Alibis, angles and tales from the tropics
Come to my mind, so easy and quick
Spacemen from mars stole all of my money
I could play the game
They love me just the same

CHORUS

That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it
That’s my life and all that I’ve got
Call me a liar, call me a writer
Believe me or not
Believe me or not

Women always know before you tell them
The younger girls, so easy to trick
What’s that word? I think I’m eccentric
I can play the game
They love me anyway

Revelations
Love when they happen
Wizards and lizards, I choose and I pick
In a hundred years it all won’t matter
How you play the game
They love you just the same

Repeat Chorus

I will play the game
I still stay the same
I will play the game
Believe me or not

Repeat Chorus

That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it
That’s my life and all that I’ve got
Call me a liar, call me a writer
Believe me or not
Believe me or not

I will play the game
I will stay the same
I will play the game
Again
And again

I will play the game
I will stay the same
I will play the game
Again
And again
