Law of the Land Songtext

Law of the land

Some people will always have it made
Some people will live in poverty for the rest of their days
Time marches on
Yesterday is dead and gone

Life is uncertain, let me hear you say, "Yeah"
Death is final, yes it is
There'll be days of sunshine and laughter
But don't forget you're gonna have to shed some tears, oh

It's the law of the land, my brother, oh
Whether you like it or you understand, (ah hey hey)
It's the law of the land, (hey hey, hey hey)
Laws made by almighty man

Live by The Good Book, if you're able
You must play your cards on top of the table
When you gamble, you either win or lose
In life everybody's got to pay some dues, well


It's the law of the land, (well well well)
Whether you like it or you understand, you can't change it
It's the law of the land, (ah how)
Laws made by almighty man, (oh hey)

Hey, it's the law, the law of the land
Whether you like it or you understand
It's the law, the law of the land
Laws made by almighty man

Being somebody can't be found
Until you find yourself, think about it
You might not like being who you are but you better start likin' it
'Cause you sure can't be nobody else

In other words, I can't be you, ain't no way, yeah
You can't be me, (well well)
That's the way it is, my sisters and brothers
And that's the way that Good Lord meant to be, (hey ho)

It's the law of the land, (well)
Whether you like it or you understand, (say say)
It's the law of the land, (hey yeah oh)
Laws made by almighty man

Lookee here

Most of a man's day is governed by a clock
For your own protection your doors you must lock
What goes around, comes around
And what goes up, yeah, must come down, (aha)

It's the law of the land, (well well well well)
Whether you like it or you understand
It's the law of the land, (well well well)
Laws made by almighty man, (aha)

It's the law of the land, everybody else say
Whether you like it or you understand
