THAT'S JUST THE WAY IT GOES
by Ray Rodgers

Wake up, get up, get outside.
The weather’s rough,
but we can't hide.
It's just the way
we drag our hides,
through rain and wind and snow.
So,
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes some.
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes.

It's stand and cook,
or stand in line.
The hunger’s yours.
The hunger’s mine.
It's just the way we feed the time.
It's just the way we chose.
So,
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes some.
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes.

It's heads up, get up, get inside.
The storm’s coming. run and hide.
It's just another rising tide,
and just the way she blows.
So,
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes some.
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes.

It's fall in love and fall apart,
wrench your soul, and break your heart.
but, the danger’s there right from the start,
and still we choose to go.
So,
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes some.
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes.

It's wake up, get up, get out, put out.
Find some place to show.
It's just another day
and with another day to go.
So,
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes some.
Hey, hi, ho, hum.
That's just the way it goes.
