Lyrics

When the man says that he needs you and he swears you'll never part

If you notice that he's crossed his finger, better get smart

It oughta make you wonder, you wanta get this right

Is he talking 'bout forever or just talking 'bout tonight

Honey it's a shame they don't teach you this in school, but if you're gonna play the game, then learn the rules

 

The first thing to remember, don't hang on every word

Or you'll be making plans like you're believing what you've heard

You gotta pay attention, start watching for the signs

No matter what he says, you better read between the lines

Honey it's a shame they don't teach you this in school, but if you're gonna play the game then learn the rules

Chorus -

     Cause you wanta keep from falling for almost anything

     Til he wants to meet your Mama and he's shopping for a ring

     When loves the game, you better learn the rules

     Cause you're gonna play the game or play the fool

 

The dinners and the movies, the flowers that he sends

You're thinking he's the one then catch him winking at his friends

He's playing with your feelings, he's stringing you along

He knows the words by heart and so he sings the same old song

Honey it's a shame they don't teach you this in school, but if you're gonna play the game then learn the rules

Chorus

When you ask him if he loves you, does he answer "you're so cute"

Is he quick to change the subject and then list your attributes

He's handling your heart here, he's messing with your mind

He'll say whatever suits him cause it works most every time

Honey it's a shame they don't teach you this in school, but if you're gonna play the game then play the rules

Yeah, honey it's a shame they don't teach you this in school, but if you're gonna play the game

If you're gonna play the game, yeah if you're gonna play the game then learn the rules.
