One father brought me
into the world of black nights and white days;
Another father brought me
into the world of black and white squares.
Which one helps me find my way through the black and white?
Which one teaches me the meaning of sacrifice and strategy?
Which father teaches me how to focus under pressure?
Which voice do I hear when I'm about to make a dangerous move?
Which voice do I hear when I'm down?
Which father teaches me not to brag when I win?
Which one teaches me to learn from my mistakes when I lose?
Which one uses love and laughter in his lessons?
"Chess is life and life is chess."
