It’s really sad when you play games without me
it breaks my heart when your moves say you doubt me
We used to play all the time, on your board or mine
it didn’t matter, no-one was keeping the score, (anyway)
Now I’ve heard things have changed, letters been rearranged
and now I’m sadder, and I’m feeling it more, (everyday)

But now you’ll have to go alone
I’m taking your Q, and other consonants too,
and going home

I guess I’ll pass go, and try forget about you
I know it’s square one, but I’ll take my chance without you
Don’t stop near my property, drive far away from me
in your silver car, there is no parking here, (on my street)
Got out of jail for free, that’s what you did usually
but now I see you, and I’m making you pay, (for deceit)

But now you’ll have to go alone
Enjoy paying tax, and general repairs
on all your houses on your own

I’m bored of your games and I’m tired of your tricks
when I roll the dice, I hope for double six
I’ll get another turn to win at this life
I’d have lost the most had I made you my wife
Victory is sweeter when you’re not around
the finish is nearer, I can hear the sounds
The heavens will open, this last move I’ll make
‘cause I am a ladder and you, you are a snake

I’ve heard you’ve moved on, I can’t believe you kissed him
I guess I was wrong, I shouldn’t have dismissed him
My life fell apart, a dagger right through the heart
a rope around my neck, in the form of noose, (I can’t breathe)
I didn’t spot the clues, so when I heard the news
it was news to me, I hadn’t spotted the clues, (I still can’t breathe)

But now you’ll have to go alone
Besides who has billiard rooms, conservatories,
secret passages in their homes

I’m bored of your games and I’m tired of your tricks
when I roll the dice, I hope for double six
I’ll get another turn to win at this life
I’d have lost the most had I made you my wife
Victory is sweeter when you’re not around
the finish is nearer, I can hear the sounds
The heavens will open, this last move I’ll make
‘cause I am a ladder and you, you are a snake

We used to make love, l – o – v – e, in the corner
to get the triple word score
