The Way It Is

Bruce Hornsby
Language: English



Standing in line, marking time
Waitinf for the welfare dime
'Cause they can't buy a job
The man in a silt suuit hurries by
As he catches a poor old lady's eye
Just for fun he says
'Get a job'

That's just the way it is
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is
Ah, but dont you believe them

Said hey little boy
you can't go where the others go
'Cuz you don't look like they do
Said hey old man
How can you stand to think that way
And did you really think about it
before you made the rules

He said, son

That's just the way it is
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is
Ah, but dont you believe them

Well they passed a law in '64
To give those who ain't got a little more
But it only goes so far
Because the law don't change another's mind
When all it sees at the hiring time
Is the line on the color bar

That's just the way it is
Some things will never change
That's just the way it is
That's just the way it is
it is, it is, it is...
