The Chess Game lyrics

The Chess Game

MARVIN: That's the king
Treat him nice
Use some brains
Please protect him

WHIZZER: Yes I know
Here I go

MARVIN: Play the game

WHIZZER: Please don't watch me?
I can do it

MARVIN: Have a little scotch

WHIZZER: Shit
I blew it
Maybe you could show me where
I fear I've lost my head

MARVIN: Do you want my help?

WHIZZER: No I don't
I can think it through myself

MARVIN: Start again, we've seen the worst

WHIZZER: I'll go first

MARVIN: Move a pawn

WHIZZER: No sir

MARVIN: Move

WHIZZER: Where?

MARVIN: There

WHIZZER: Here?

MARVIN: Move a pawn

WHIZZER: Who?

MARVIN: Not the queen

WHIZZER: Who?

MARVIN: Jesus

BOTH: Life's a sham and every move is wrong
We've examined every move as we move along

MARVIN/WHIZZER: Winning is everything to me/Nothing is everything to me
Winning is everything to me/Nothing is everything to me

WHIZZER: Except sex

MARVIN: Move a pawn

WHIZZER: And money

MARVIN: Good first move

WHIZZER: Quite alright
Take a turn

MARVIN: Thank you kindly

WHIZZER: Move the pawn
Move the pawn
Take my hand
Play the game

MARVIN: God, you're pretty

WHIZZER: Force? the pity
Since you need a man

MARVIN: What?

WHIZZER: Who's brainy

WHIZZER/MARVIN: Or witty/Witty move

WHIZZER: Maybe sometimes I'm afraid
The maid is more your style

MARVIN: He isn't very bright

WHIZZER: He goes to school at night

MARVIN: He's learning-

WHIZZER: English Lit

MARVIN: He's learning how to speak the language

WHIZZER: What should I do now?

MARVIN: Move

WHIZZER: Where?

MARVIN: There

WHIZZER: How should I behave myself?
Maybe we should call it quits

MARVIN: This game shits

WHIZZER: Let me win?

MARVIN: Yes sir

WHIZZER: Please?

MARVIN: Sure!

WHIZZER: Thanks!

MARVIN: Wait

WHIZZER: Whizzer wins!

MARVIN: Wait

WHIZZER: Whizzer wins!

MARVIN: Wait

WHIZZER: Checkmate

BOTH: Life's a sham and every move is wrong
We've examined every move as we move along

MARVIN/WHIZZER: Winning is everything to me/Nothing is everything to me
Winning is everything to me/Nothing is everything to me

WHIZZER: Except sex

MARVIN: Watch the queen

WHIZZER: And money

MARVIN: And money

WHIZZER: And money

MARVIN: And money

WHIZZER: And money

MARVIN: And money

WHIZZER: And money

MARVIN: And money

WHIZZER: And money

BOTH: And
Life's a sham and every move is wrong
We've examined every move as we move along

WHIZZER: Whizzer's supposed to make the dinner
Be a patsy, lose at chess
Always bravely acquiesce
Clip the coupons, make the dinner, and love him

WHIZZER/MARVIN: This has got to come to a stop, Marvin/This has got to come to a stop, Whizzer
This has been a lousy but fabulous flop/a fabulous flop

MARVIN: Anyone understand?
All I want's a kiss
Anyone understand?

WHIZZER: Don't start explaining
I'm sick of explaining

WHIZZER/MARVIN: And this had better come to a stop, Marvin/This had better come to a stop, Whizzer
Now, Marvin/Now, Whizzer
Ciao, Marvin/Ciao, Whizzer

BOTH: Bend?
This had better come
This had better come to a
This, this, this, this

WHIZZER/MARVIN: This had better come to an end/This had better come to an end

BOTH: This had better come to an end
