Mick Jagger – Strange Game Lyrics

 

Strange Game Lyrics by Mick Jagger (From The ATV+ Original Series “Slow Horses”)

 

Surrounded by losers, misfits and boozers
Hanging by your fingernails
You made one mistake, you got burned at the stake
You’re finished, you’re foolish, you failed
There’s always a hope on this slippery slope
Somewhere a ghost of a chance
To get back in that game and burn off your shame
And dance with the big boys again

It’s a strange, strange game
Strange, strange game
Such a shame, shame, shame
Yes, a strange game
You got to carry the blame
In this strange game
You’re out on a limb and you’re trying to get in
It’s a strange game

You piled up the corpses, exhausted your sources
Living right under a cloud
The odds are against you, the gods haven’t blessed you
You better get back on the rails
Drill down on the data, keep pushing the paper
The damps dripping down on the walls
It’s a million to one, there’s a place in the sun
To dance with the big boys again

It’s a strange, strange game
Strange, oh, so strange
You don’t even know my real name
It’s a strange game
You got to carry the blame
In this strange, strange game
You’re out on a limb, trying hard to get in
It’s a strange game
