lyrics

Back in the day you were
An average chess player
But you got to travel
Around the world

Got to play games with
Some famous chess players
Then you retired
In your home town

And you started teaching math
At the local school

You played chess in the park
And made friends with a man that
Once conquered the world
With his avant-garde art

He told you his life was a farce
That he dreamt with someone
Stealing or destroying his piece of art

Early in the morning, that day,
Everybody was still sleeping
And you kept yourself awake
With a newspaper you’d found

And you started to think
How easy it could be
To steal a piece of art
And you started to think
How easy it could be
It’ll be for you, sweetheart
