Lyric:

Standing in line, marking 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,
Ah! But don't you believe them...
They said, "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 when you made the rules?"
He said, "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..."
That's just the way it is.
Well they passed a law in sixty four
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 he sees at the hiring time
Is the line on the colour bar.
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...
That's just the way it is,
Some things will never change.
That's just the way it is,
Some things will never change.
