Songs About Games, Games People Play

Trapped:  Jimmy Cliff; Bruce Springsteen  (Well it seems like I've been playin' the game way too long/And it seems the game I played has made you strong/Well when the game is over, I won't walk out a loser.........But now I'm trapped)

There is the hilarious "The Crusher" by the Ramones.  All about wrestling.   It was written by DeeDee and sung by Chris.
