The Game 2 lyrics

The Game 2

[[Addison]]
To hell with him.

[[Nellie]]
The hell with him.

[[Wilson]]
The hell with them.

[[All Three]]
What's next?

[[Wilson]]
It all comes down to staying in the game.

[[Addison]]
The thing that really matters is the game.

[[Nellie]]
You win, you lose,
There's no one but yourself
That you can blame.

[[All Three]]
The only thing that matters is the game.

[[Nellie]]
Just a bad bet.

[[Wilson]]
Just a slight dent.

[[Addison]]
Slam the door shut
On what
You spent.

[[All Three]]
Every exit is an entrance into something
else!

The only thing you hvae to bear in mind
Is close the book
And never look
Behind.

[[Wilson and Addison]]
"Straight ahead," Papa said.

[[Nellie]]
Take a chance or else you're dead.

[[All Three]]
You find a new frontier and stake a claim.
The thing that really matters is the game.

[Wilson]]
Cut a new deck.

[[Nellie]]
Make a new move.

[[Addison]]
When you've got nothing left to prove--

[[All Three]]
Doesn't take long to see that you've
Got to go somewhere else!

[[Willson and Nellie]]
You were the best thing that ever has happened
to me--
Still are.
The best and worst thing that ever has happened
to me,
So far.

We missed the boat, my friend.
It sailed, forget it.
We let it
Pass right in front of our eyes.
What a suprise.

Sometimes I wish that you never has happened
to me--
Sometimes.
You were the best thing that ever had happened
to me--
Sometimes.

But if I'm lucky, pal,
You shortly will be
The second-best thing that has happened to me.

[[Nellie]]
The hell with him.

[[Wilson]]
The hell with her.

[[Addison]]
The hell with it.

[[All Three]]
What's next?

[[Real Estate Promoter]]
Land boom!
With a double whammy, boy!
Land boom!
Profits this thick!
Land boom!
Down around Miami, boy--
The weather's kind of clammy,
But it's get rich quick!

Brand new communities,
Just take your pick.
Lots of opportunities--
All you need is capital,
A little does the trick.
Beg or steal or borrow,
It'll double by tomorrow.
Only get your ass to Florida
And get rich quick!

[[Addison]]
The thing that really matters is the game.

[[Nellie]]
The trick is getting back into the game.

[[Wilson]]
You lose the pot, it's over with.
Don't stick with it, it's gone.

[[Nellie]]
Just stop.

[[Wilson]]
Close shop.

[[Addison]]
Move on.

[[All Three]]
To lose the hand you're sure of is a shame,
But life without the strife is pretty tame.
When you've lost all you've got,
Go and find another pot:
Switch tables,
Raise the stakes,
Adjust your aim.
The only thing that matters is the game.

[[Nellie]]
Where's the next bar?

[[Wilson]]
Where's the next ounce?

[[Addison]]
Where's the next chance for me to bounce?

[[All Three]]
Winning may be what really counts,
But all the same--

[[Wilson]]
The only thing that matters is the game...

[[Nellie]]
The only thing that matters is the game...

[[Addison]]
The only thing that matters is the game...
