Abba - The name of the game
Tekst en muziek: Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus en Stig Anderson
(1977)







I’ve seen you twice in a short time
Only a week since we started
It seems to me, for every time
I’m getting more open-hearted



I was an impossible case
No one ever could reach me
But I think, I can see in your face
There’s a lot you can teach me
So, I wanna know
What’s the name of the game



Does it mean anything to you
What’s the name of the game
Can you feel it the way I do
Tell me please, ’cause I have to know
I’m a bashful child, beginning to grow



And you make me talk
And you make me feel
And you make me show
What I’m trying to conceal
If I trust in you, would you let me down
Would you laugh at me, if I said, I care for you
Could you feel the same way too
I wanna know
The name of the game



Your smile and the sound of your voice
Does it mean anything to you
Got a feeling, you give me no choice
But it means a lot, what’s the name of the game
Your smile and the sound of your voice
Can you feel it the way I do
Tell me please, ’cause I have to know
I’m a bashful child, beginning to grow



And you make me talk
And you make me feel
And you make me show
What I’m trying to conceal
If I trust in you, would you let me down
Would you laugh at me, if I said, I care for you
Could you feel the same way too
I wanna know
Oh yes, I wanna know
The name of the game



I was an impossible case
Does it mean anything to you
But I think, I can see in your face
That it means a lot
What’s the name of the game
Your smile and the sound of your voice
Can you feel it the way I do
Got a feeling, you give me no choice
But it means a lot, what’s the name of the game



I was an impossible case
Does it mean anything to you
But I think, I can see in your face
That it means a lot
What’s the name of the game
