Rules of the Game
© 2006 Jim Gach

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF THE GAME.
YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME & HOPE I NEVER CHANGE,
THEN GIVE ME A LIST OF THINGS TO DO
TO HELP ME SELF-IMPROVE
I DON'T GET THE RULES OF THE GAME.

(CHORUS)
I'M NOT A MAN MADE OF WIRE,
YOU CAN'T BEND BE TO YOUR DESIRE.
I'M NOT A MAN MADE OF CLAY
YOU CAN'T MOULD ME JUST ANYWAY.
CAN'T YOU LOVE ME THE WAY I AM
LIKE YOU DID WHEN WE FIRST BEGAN.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF THE GAME.
LOVING YOU IS DRIVING ME INSANE.
YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME THE WAY I AM,
THEN YOU TRY TO CHANGE ME TO YOUR IDEAL MAN.
I DON'T GET THE RULES OF THIS GAME.

(CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
I'M NOT WILLING TO CHANGE WHO I AM
JUST TO BE YOUR RENAISSANCE MAN.

I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF THE GAME.
DON'T THINK I'M LOOKING TO COMPLAIN,
CAN'T YOU UNDERSTAND MY PLIGHT?
WHATEVER I CHANGE IT STILL AIN'T RIGHT.
I DON'T GET THE RULES OF THE GAME.

(CHORUS)

(OUTRO)
I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE RULES OF THE GAME.
LOVING YOU IS DRIVING ME INSANE.
