Dan Hartman - Name Of The Game Lyrics




The name of the game
It's not about money, not about fame
You are what you are
That's the name of the game

Hook your feelings up to a power station
Let your feelings broadcast across the nation, hey

Stand up

Maybe a fool takes a fortune by chance
Maybe the world has lost its romance
But you've got to try to keep on dancing
The dance of the heart

The name of the game
It's not about money, not about fame
You are what you are
That's the name of the game

It's the name of the game
In love and emotion, the beat is the same
You are what you are
That's the name of the game

I don't need to be the king of the jungle
Or the queen of the heart
'Cause people try and take you and make you over
Into something you'not

Stand up

Tell your teacher, tell your summer affair
The power is yours, the magic is there
It's at your command
So don't let it slip through your hands

The name of the game

It's not about money, not about fame
You are what you are
That's the name of the game

Headlines, party lines
The only sense it makes is that it takes all kinds
Old friends, no friends
The dance of the heart can never end
The dance of the heart never ends, it never ends

It's not all about money
It's not all about fame
Material to the spiritual world

Stand up

Maybe a fool makes a fortune by chance
Maybe the world has lost its romance
But you've got to try to keep on dancing the dance of the heart
Keep on dancing the dance of the heart

Name of the game
Not about money, not about fame
Hey you are what you are
That's the name of the game

It's the name of the game
In love and emotion yet the beat is the same
You are what you are
That's the name of the game
It's the name, name of the game

That's the name of the game
That's the name of the game
That's the name of the game

    Dan Hartman would have been a part of this Synthwave movement. Totally see Daft Punk, Disclosure, other producer /DJs working with him. RIP Dan.

    I didn't know he did a freestyle-ish song until now!  Not a bad track at all.

    He did another one called 'Heart of the beat' under the name '3V'. It was on the 'Breakin' movie soundtrack 1984. Its a killer track.
