Lyrics

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 lady's eyes Just for fun he says, get a job [CHORUS] That's just the way it is Some things will never change That's just the way it is Aw, but don't you believe them

Said, 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 [repeat CHORUS] 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 It is, it is, it is
