Big 'Ol Game (featuring Raphael Saadiq)

Joss Stone

Summer child,
And Wendy, I ain't seen for a while
Since she's been working,
Trying to catch her old style
With that I got her back,
My kettle's always boiling,
Snow is falling
And it's truly freezing
Danny ain't been calling,
He's got a family
But outside my door still says
"Welcome on the floor"

Life is just a big ol' game to me
I'd like to be number one on your team,
Call me baby (Baby!)
Pick me up, baby girl (Baby!)
One day someone will snatch me for their lady

The buds in their blooms now
But no letters come from Lucy
She's deep in her book,
Trying to bring down the words
But she's on my mind profusely, my sister Lucy

The birds and the bees
They do their thing in trees
While we're hustling,
Rosalind's playing the game of life
Looking in the dark light
For the answers to the questions, like

Life is just a big ol' game to me,
I'd like to be number one on your team,
Call me baby (Baby!)
Pick me up baby. (Baby!)
One day someone will snatch me for their lady, (watch me now)
I could never be your number two,
Cause when you're not there,
I'm sure someone is loving you,
And I can't have it,
I won't have it.
One day someone will snatch me for their lady.

You know, sometimes,
See, I find myself confused
It's always "why this" and "why that"
See, have you ever heard the saying "it's just a game"?
Well, then one more why,
Why can't I start playing?

Life is just a big ol' game to me,
I'd like to be number one on your team,
Call me baby
(Baby!)
(Baby!)
Baby
I could never be you number two,
Cause when I'm not there,
I'm sure someone is loving you,
And I can't have it,
I won't have it.

Life is just a big ol' game to me,
I'd like to be number one on your team,
Call me baby
(Baby!)
(Baby!)
Baby

I could never be your
Your number two
Cause someone else will come and start loving you.
And I can't have it.
I told I won't have it, now.
Oh, life is just a big old game to me.
Hm
