Freddie

Open up your mind and let me step inside
Rest your weary head and let your heart decide
It’s so easy when you know the rules
It’s so easy all you have to do
Is fall in love
Play the game
Ev’rybody play the game of love

When you’re feelin’ down and your resistance is low
Light another cigarette and let yourself go
This is your life
Don’t play hard to get
It’s a free world
All you have to do is fall in love
Play the game everybody play the game of love

Freddie

My game of love has just begun
Love runs from my head down to my toes
My love is pumping through my veins (play the game)
Driving me insane
play the game play the game play
the game play the game

Freddie (10)

Play the game everybody play the game of love

This is your life – don’t play hard to get
It’s a free free world all you have to do is fall in love
Play the game yeah play the game of love
Your life – don’t play hard to get

It’s a free free world all you have to do is fall in love
Play the game – ev’rybody play the game of love…

Freddie
