Songtekst

Standing in line marking time
Waiting for the welfare dime
'Cause they can't buy a job
A man in a silk suit hurries by
As he catches the poor old lady's 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
Ah, 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
Ah, 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 in 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
