lyrics

I need a new game to play
I need some rules
Your game was old, I threw the board away

We need some help, ages 8-12
I'll be the shoe, you'll be the car
And something else, we need a sense of self
That's right you said: shoe and car

You roll the dice, I will move your piece
I know exactly where you are
Why can't we play nice, the shoe and the car?

I don't need a throw, I don't need a clue
I just need one guess
I'm ready to solve, I think it was you
In your room with your brain

What are we to do, the car and the shoe?
Our moves are squares on a map
What are we to do, we are trapped
