The Way It Is

Eric Chase

Stand in line mark in time
waiting for a welfare dime
'cause they can't buy a job
the man in the silk suit hurries by
as he catches the poor old ladies eyes
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
oh but don't you believe them

They say hey little boy
you can't go where the others go
'cause you don't look like they do
said hey old man how can you stand to think that way
did you really think about it
before you made the rules he said so

That's just the way it is
some things will never change
that's just the way it is
oh but don't 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
