Your Move is the second of two specially composed versions of the English opening theme to the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series, and was released in Yu-Gi-Oh! Music to Duel By. This version is composed by John Siegler (co-composer of the original) and Norman J. Grossfeld[1] and performed by James Chatton. Unlike "Yu-Gi-Oh! The Main Theme", "Your Move" is more of a direct mix of the Season 1 and Season 2 themes, with only a little modification.

The song was used in the initial broadcast version of Episodes 4 and 5, which were condensed into one episode through a montage featuring this piece. This technique would be repeated for Episode 14 and 15 with "Panik".

Chatton would later go on to sing "One Card Short" for Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie.

Lyrics

(Your move)
It's time to duel
and there's no backing down.
The heart of the cards
is where magic is found.

We played this game before
But never quite this way.
It's like an all out war
With monsters that obey

(chorus)
Yu-Gi-Oh!
(He's the king of games)
Yu-Gi-Oh!
King of games

(Your move)
Nowhere to turn
now the traps have been set
Play that one last surprise
Say it ain't over yet.

They've got the upper hand
But that won't last for long
It's time to take a stand
And show them that you're strong

(chorus)
Yu-Gi-Oh!
(He's the king of games)
Yu-Gi-Oh!
Hey, hey

Egyptian secrets are revived
Ancient powers have survived
When wrong from right's
not black and white
Friends will help
to win the fight
Solve the puzzle's mystery
Unlock the hero's destiny
Now alter egos no one knows
Side by side they fight their foes

Hey! It's time to duel
These dual identities
They struggle for control
Two personalities
Inhabiting one's soul

It's not a match you're in
It's much more like a brawl
The only way to win
You've gotta risk it all!

(Your move)
It's time to duel
and there's no backing down
The heart of the cards
is where magic is found

We played this game before
But never quite this way
It's like an all out war
With monsters that obey

(chorus)
Yu-Gi-Oh!
(He's the king of games)
Yu-Gi-Oh!
Hey, hey

Yu-Gi-Oh!
(He's the king of games)
Yu-Gi-Oh!
Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yu-Gi-Oh!
(He's the king of games)
Yu-Gi-Oh!
King of games

Yu-Gi-Oh!
(He's the king of games)
Yu-Gi-Oh!
Your move
