Lyrics

THAT’S JUST HOW IT IS

1.The father has to work abroad

The only way of survival

They’d like it not to be like this

But that’s just how it is

2. The servant with her daily chores

With her humdrum job she gets so bored

She’d like it not to be like this…

3. The woman’s suffering abuse

Her husband treats her like refuse

She’d like it not to be like this…

4. The drivers stuck on the highway

The long trek done to work each day

They’d like it not to be like this…

5. The business owner grits his teeth

Business is moving so slowly

He’d like it not to be like this…

6. The poverty struck family

There are so many mouths to feed

They’d like it not to be like this…

7. The millions born in poverty

The millions who go hungary

We’d like it not to be like this…

8.. The crime that stalks the neighborhood

The bullying that goes on in schools
We’d like it not to be like this….

9. Around the world the Aids virus

All the HIV sufferers

We’d like it not to be like this….

10. The war that just goes on and on

The war that carries on so long

We’d like it not to be like this…

11. The people up in North Korea

Tyrants have ruled so many years

They’d like it not to be like this…

12. Each year as we get older now

We don’t have as much strength and power

We’d like it not to be like this…

13 He has to face the fear of death

This fate he has to deal with

He’d like it not to be like this

14. And so his soul has to travel

If not to heaven then to hell

He’d like it not to be like this…

15. If he had just made the right choice

Had heeded the right inner voice

It wouldn’t have had to be like this

But that’s just how it is
