See you've got the new biography
Where did they get the info from?
Same as before some so called friends
Who claim to have known me then

How come they've got such good memories
When I can't even remember last week
Got to question where they're coming from
What knowledge of [Incomprehensible] they speak?

So far away, way back when
The people that claim to have known me then
Down not on my wavelength and it's such a shame
That they have to play the name game

The fame game, oh, the name game
Lord, it's a cryin' shame
Lord, tell me what's to blame?

Reinvented all the stories they know
Give them all a different slant
What is it that they're really looking for?
Just a hobby on the Internet

So far away, way back when
The people that claim to have known me then
Not on my wavelength and it's such a shame
That they have to play the name game

The fame game, oh, the name game
Oh, such a cryin' shame
Please tell me who's to blame?

If they didn't really know me way back
How can they know me now in any respect
It's a pity, they don't feel the pain
That they should pay the price to play, to play

The fame game, oh, the name game
It's such a cryin' shame
Please tell me who's to blame?

Not on my wavelength and it's such a shame
That they have to play
Have to play the fame game

Oh, the name game
It's a cryin' shame
Please tell me who's to blame?

They keep on playin'
The fame game, Lord, the name game
It's such a cryin' shame
Please tell me who's to blame?

Keep on playin' the fame game
Lord, the name game
It's such a cryin' shame
Please tell me who's to blame?

They just keep on playin' the fame game
Oh, the name game
It's such a cryin' shame
Please tell me who's to blame?
Keep on, keep on playin'
