The Way It Is Lyrics - Bruce Hornsby

Review The Song (1)



The Way It Is


Standing in line marking time--
Waiting for the 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
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, Son

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

THAT'S JUST THE WAY IT IS | Reviewer: Dave Scott | 8/3/12

A definite classic. I could listen to this song for hours and never get tired of listening to it. Thank you Bruce Hornsby for giving us the gift of your your music. And since Bruce Hornsby's home is also in Williamsburg, it additionally makes me proud to say that I live in Hampton Roads, home of Bruce Hornsby the Waxing Poetics and FM99 DJ Carol Taylor. God bless you Bruce Hornsby. - Dave Scott, Chesapeake, VA
