The Lyrics

Some people, such as myself, never can seem to win at board games, or any games for that matter!
Intro: I’m givin’ up (boo)
I’m givin’ up (boo)
I’m givin’ playing, playing, playing these games
Always lose these games, I’m through

Verse 1: We bought Sorry at the toy store
I’m winning the game, let’s play more
I haven’t won since, and so I roar
BoooHOOOOhooo!
The only time I won was the first time
No smiles, fun’s gone, so I whine
Oh how I miss winning
BoooHOOOOhooo!

Hook: No matter, what we play
I always start losing, all day
That’s when I thro-o-o-o-ow!
The bo-o-o-o-oard!
When you piece crossed that line
I thought I might fracture your spine
This game so blo-o-o-o-ows!
You kno-o-o-o-ow!

Chorus: Oh no game (oh no game)
No game really fits my strengths
Oh no one (oh no one)
Ever lets me win, that stinks
I’ve been playing, playing, playing these games
Having my patience run thin
I’ve been playing, playing, playing these games
Cannot find a one I’d win
I’m givin’ up (boo)
I’m givin’ up (boo)
I’m givin’ playing, playing, playing these games
Found another one I’m in!

Verse 2: I hate it when I’m reachin’ for the last spoon
Someone gets set, spoons gone too soon
Like watchin’ cartoons, a hand typhoon
BoooHOOOOhooo!
Oo it’s Simon Says, I’ll copy
So I’ll reach and I’ll bend how you tell me
No Simon Says, but I moved
I boooHOOOOhooo!

Hook: Tried Poker, and I lost
I didn’t know what it would have cost
My savings blo-o-o-o-own!
I gro-o-o-o-oan!
When a board game is brought
I get a sudden hopeful, small thought
I’ll win this sho-o-o-o-ow!
Oh no-o-o-o-o!

Chorus: Oh no game (oh no game)
No game really gives me luck
And no one (and no one)
No one really gives a pluck
I’ve been playing, playing, playing these games
Finally think I’ve had enough
I’ve been playing, playing, playing these games
Losing all these games is rough
I’m givin’ up!

Bridge: All these days, of game nights
Finally lost the fight
Like, like boooHOOOOhooo
Like, like boooHOOOOhooo
I’m givin’ up Stratego, and then Life
That’s a loser’s strife
Like, like boooHOOOOhooo
Like, like boooHOOOOhooo

Chorus: Oh no game (oh no game)
No game will satisfy me
Oh no one (oh no one)
No one wants to let me play
I’ve been playing, playing, playing these games
Never tasting victory
I’ve been playing, playing, playing these games
Maybe there’s one I see!
Found a game (found a game)
Finally found a game I win
And no one (and no one)
No one knows it’s made by me!
I’ve been searching, searching, searching to find
Finally win a game I made!
I’ve been playing, playing, playing my game
Now I lost cuz people played!

Outro: I’m givin’ up (boo)
I’m givin’ up (boo)
I’m givin’ playing, playing, playing these games
Always lose these games, I’m through
Always lose these games, I’m through

I like how you were specific with traits of the games like Sorry, Spoons, and Poker. I also like how you give him some hope with the game he made then take it right back! Poor guy, you just can't get a break. Favorite line: "No Simon Says, but I moved I boooHOOOOhooo!"

I have the same problem. My computer is always beating me at backgammon. I even lose at solitaire.
Peter Andersson - May 13, 2012 - Report this comment
Ha, that's nothing, I even lose at Solitaire when I try to cheat! ;-)

I tried to cheat at solitaire once, but I got caught.

hahaha nice work here. This reminded me of my favorite joke by Dane Cook "Four hours into a game of Monopoly and you just flip the board over...F*** this game!! It's three o'clock in the morning grandma, YOU WIN!!!" Nice job with this one!

Great work on this song, Blayde. Carried well throughout, but both HOOKS stood out in their entirety, as well as 'I’m givin’ up Stratego, and then Life'. I'm just sad you couldn't fit 'monopoly' in there. My wife and I board game from time to time and we really enjoy a game called CARCASSONE. It's awesome if you've never tried it.

(Continued) - Ha, that's still nothing, when I played Monopoly I had to bail out the banker, with real money, my own, that I borrowed from a JP Morgan investment consultant, and because of the real money, when I raised my first (and only one ever) hotel, I got a visit from the IRS, because in the fint print of Swedish tax law, that real money made the hotel count as real...

This struck a chord with me, as I've lost 58 games of Candyland in a row to my daughter. She's ruthless! Nice job.

(SOTM) I employ a similar strategy to shooting games: I refuse to play them cuz I always get shot. I know that's the point, but there's a point when you can't hit jack and the enemy consistently snipes between your eyeballs when I've gone off track haven't I? Um...great parody to a kinda irritating song (and I don't really hate Jason Derulo that much), 555!

SOTM...it's like my internal monologue at every family game night I've ever attended. :)

I usually suck at Board Games too... My favorite games are "Munchkin", "Apples To Apples", "Clue" and "Mousetrap" all classics! This was a great parody about a topic I relate to all too well, Sadly.
