THIS LIL’ GAME WE PLAY by Subway featuring 702

September 21, 2022

“This Lil’ Game We Play” is a single hit from Subway’s album, Good Times. The song, released in late 1994, features female R&B group 702; it was written and produced by Edwin Nicholas and Gerald Levert and became an instant hit for the group.

In just a few months after its release, the hit song peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent up to 20 weeks on the charts.

Although the hit single enjoyed more than half a million in record sales, other songs did not enjoy as much success on the charts. The Subway band split shortly after, in 1996, but later regrouped to release two more albums, Empty Head (2005) and Subway II (2009).

The feel-good song from the Good Times album has catchy, seductive lyrics expressing what two lovers want to do to each other. But while it was an instant hit, Subway did not release another top-40 hit. On the other hand, 702 had a relatively successful career from 1996-2003, with several top-40 hits.

Lyrics 

[Spoken Intro: Subway & (702)]

[Ooh] Yo, baby

You ready to let the games begin? (Ohhhhh)

[Oh baby] ‘Cause I’m ready (Yeah, yeah yeah, yeah)

On your mark, get set, here we go

Check it

[Chorus: Subway & 702]

Girl, I want you to stay

So we can play this little game we play

You go hide, and I will seek

Let me be the one to make you weak

Boy, I really wanna stay

And play that little game you play

But you go hide, and let me seek

Let me be the one to make you weak

Aww yeah, first verse

[Verse 1: Subway & 702]

I’m thinking about you, every day

Got me feelin’ kinda freaky

Girl, why you wanna leave me that way?

Boy, I don’t wanna leave you

So I’ll stay for a little while

But we play by my rules

‘Cause bein’ loose just ain’t my style

No no no no ohhhh

[Chorus: Subway & 702]

Girl, I want you to stay

So we can play this little game we play

You go hide, and I will seek

Let me be the one to make you weak

Boy, I really wanna stay

And play that little game you play

But you go hide, and let me seek

Let me be the one to make you weak

[Verse 2: Subway & 702]

Ohhh, so you wanna run things (Mmm-hmm)

Well, that’s cool with me

You better know what you’re doin’ (I know)

Girl, I’m a hard one to please

Come on

Oohhh, talk is cheap (Yeah)

Let’s get right to it (Ooh baby)

Let the fun and games begin

Boy, I’m ready to do this

[Chorus: Subway & 702]

Girl, I want u to stay

So we can play this little game we play

You go hide, and I will seek

Let me be the one to make you weak

Boy, I really wanna stay

And play that little game you play

But you go hide, and let me seek

Let me be the one to make you weak

[Bridge: Subway + 702 + Both]

It’s your move, baby (It’s your move, baby)

So show me what u got (Show me what you got)

‘Cause when it’s my turn (But when its my turn)

The game is gonna get hot

I like what you’re sayin’

Boy, it sounds real good, real good

But are you ready for a real woman

To test your manhood?

This little game that we play (Yeah baby, it’s my game)

It’s just a little game that we play (But you gotta play by my rules)

This little game that we play (Come on)

It’s just a little game that we play

(Just one lil game real quick, here we go)

Baby, don’t start if you think you can’t finish

Come prepared if you think you’re gonna win this

Give it your best shot (Yeah)

Give me all you got (Oh)

Guaranteed to make you hot (Make me hot, baby, oh oh)

I wanna play this game with you

I wanna play this game with you

But don’t be no fool (Yes I do)

You gotta play by my rules

[Chorus: Subway]

Girl, I want you to stay

So we can play this little game we play

You go hide, and I will seek

Let me be the one to make you weak

Girl, I want you to stay

So we can play this little game we play

You go hide, and I will seek

Let me be the one to make you weak
