The Way It Is Lyrics - Lucky Dube

Review The Song (35)

Didn' t I raised my voice
High enough for you
I was running like a fugitive all the time
Risking rejection from my own people yeah
Now that you got what you wanted
You don' t even know my name
It' s so funny, we don' t talk anymore
be good to the people on your
Way up the ladder
Cause you' ll need them on your way down

That' s the way it is x4

Didn' t I raised my fists high enough for you
I guess I can' t pat myself on the shoulder
For a job well done
Dodging bullets in the streets
sponsored links
I was there
Risking rejection from my own people yeah
Now that you got what you wanted
You don' t even know my name
Be good to the people on your way
Up the ladder 'cause you' ll need
Them on your way down

That' s the way it is

Each time i listing to your songs i always pause in my meditation
because you always sing to my soul.i shade tears for missing a prophet like you.i dont know how to discribe your absent in this sinful live that need people like you who always calls back our attention when we are going astray.Your songs are filled with massages from God.But like you said "STAND FOR THE TRUTH AND YOU WILL ALWAYS BE ALONE.That's the way it is.I will always miss you brother in the Lord.

Wowwwwww | Reviewer: Sebagala meddy | 1/16/13

Thats a lesson to many politicians in Africa,specifically my homeland Uganda.
When these pipo come to power,they normally forget the peasants who voted them up the they should stlye up.

Dube i wish u ar alive | Reviewer: Daniel | 8/25/12

What a wicked world dat hate good things. Dey allowed d spirit of evil to possess dem 2 end an endless talent like Dube. Dube is such a special musical talent from africa cos he speaks thru music like a class teacher. I never read any biography about him studyin in d university but he creates ideas than a professor. His simple and up 2 date english exposes his mastery of the language which helped him 2 express any feelin unhindered. I cant b short of words 2 present dis epitome of talent called Dube. May God grant us all his fans especially his beautiful children an wife d fortitude 2 bear d irreparable loss.

No body can stop Reggae | Reviewer: Ogbu shakespeare(lucky jenior) | 7/17/12

Oh jaah rastaman,base guilter man.Oh am shoked when i heard that my dube is nowhere to be found .2007 was indeed a year that all reggae lover should take a the worst year becos the reggae master left on that year without said goodbye.Lucky dube black that roles the white.The reggae master is going but is work and acts can never deppart from us.Good bye the reggae king it's annoyious to miss you. Shakespeare miss you alot.Bye
