Song Lyrics

Unemployment at a record high
People coming, people going, people born to die
Don't ask me because I don't know why
But it's like that and that's the way it is

People in the world try to make ends meet
You try to ride car, train, bus or feet
I said, "You got to work hard to want to compete
It's like that and that's the way it is, huh"

Money is the key to end all your woes
Your ups, your downs, your highs and your lows
Won't you tell me last time that love bought you clothes?
It's like that and that's the way it is

Bills flies higher every day
We receive much lower pay
I'd rather stay young, go out and play
It's like that and that's the way it is, huh

War's going on across the sea
Street soldiers killing the elderly
What ever happened to unity?
It's like that and that's the way it is

Disillusion is the word
That's used by me when I'm not heard
I just go through life with my glasses blurred
It's like that and that's the way it is, huh

You can see a lot in this life span
Like a bum eating out of a garbage can
You notice one time he was your man
It's like that and that's the way it is

You should've gone to school, you could've learned a trade
But you laid in the bed where the bums have laid
Now all the time you're crying that you're underpaid
It's like that and that's the way it is, huh

One thing I know is that life is short
So listen up homeboy, give this a thought
The next time someone's teaching why don't you get taught?
It's like that and that's the way it is

If you really think about it times aren't that bad
The one that stretches for success will make you glad
Stop playing, start praying, you won't be sad
It's like that and that's the way it is, huh

When you feel you fail, sometimes it hurts
For a meaning in life is why you search
Take the boys on the train, drive to school on the church
It's like that and that's the way it is

Here's another point in life, you should not miss
Do not be a fool who's prejudice
Because we're all written down on the same list
It's like that and that's the way it is, huh

You know it's like that and that's the way it is
Because it's like that and that's the way it is
You know it's like that and that's the way it is
Because it's like that and that's the way it is

You know it's like that and that's the way it is
Because it's like that and that's the way it is
You know it's like that and that's the way it is
Because it's like that and that's the way it is
