   / Rufus Wainwright /  "Out of the Game, it came to me through exhaustion.
  / Out of the Game  /  Just seeing these young people today doing all that they
 / Out of the Game  /  have to do for, you know, five seconds on, you know,
/__________________/  youtube. When I started out in the business I jumped
                     through a lot of hoops, you know, and I would do things
that had to be done. But I was pretty dead set on having to be about the music
and not so much about the image, though I did create an image. The older I get,
the more exhausting that whole concept becomes. I mean, my favorite line from
that song is "Wearing something from God knows where". But then again of course,
the third verse is you know "Come over here, let me smell you for one last time,
before you go out there, and ruin all the world once mine". It's tinged with
envy as well, you know, 'cause I'd like to be that age again and that silly and
that kind of excited about idiotic things. I think it's a heartfelt complaint.
I'm just tired. I'm out of the game."

Verse

 "You're only a child
  with the mind of a senile man
  You're only a young thing
  About to sleep with a sea of men
  Just hanging around

  Just having a ball
  making all of the thin cards fall"

  I've been out for a long time now
  I'm looking for something
  Can't be found on the main drag, no"



Chorus:
The last 2 bars of F are extended to 6 bars + drum soloing.
Then end on E.
