    Lyrics

    [Run]
    Unemployment at a record highs
    People coming, people going, people born to die
    Don't ask me, because I don't know why
    But it's like that, and that's the way it is

    [D.M.C.]
    People in the world tryin to make ends meet
    You try to ride car, train, bus, or feet
    I said you got to work hard, you want to compete
    It's like that, and that's the way it is
    Huh!

    [Run & D.M.C. alternate lines for the remainder of the song]
    Money is the key to end all your woes
    Your ups, your downs, your highs and your lows
    Won't you tell me the last time that love bought you clothes?
    It's like that, and that's the way it is

    Bills rise higher every day
    We receive much lower pay
    I'd rather stay young, go out and play
    It's like that, and that's the way it is
    Huh!

    Wars going on across the sea
    Street soldiers killing the elderly
    Whatever happened to unity?
    It's like that, and that's the way it is

    Disillusion is the word
    That's used by me when I'm not heard
    I just go through life with my glasses blurred
    It's like that, and that's the way it is
    Huh!

    You can see a lot in this lifespan
    Like a bum eating out of a garbage can
    You noticed one time he was your man
    It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is

    You should have gone to school, you could've learned a trade
    But you laid in the bed where the bums have laid
    Now all the time you're crying that you're underpaid
    It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is
    You know its like that and thats the way it is
    Because it's like that and thats the way it is
    (x2)

    Check this out
    Run Dmc and Jam master Jay Run!(x4)
    Run Dmc and Jam master Jay (x2)
    Check this out

    One thing I know is that life is short
    So listen up homeboy, give this a thought
    The next time someone's teaching why don't you get taught?
    It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is

    If you really think about it times aren't that bad
    The one that flexes with successes will make you glad
    Stop playing start praying, you won't be sad
    It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is
    Huh!

    When you feel you fail sometimes it hurts
    For a meaning in life is why you search
    Take the bus or the train, drive to school or the church
    It's like that, and that's the way it is

    Here's another point in life you should not miss
    Do not be a fool who's prejudiced
    Because we're all written down on the same list
    It's like that (what?) and that's the way it is
    Huh!

    You know it's like that, and that's the way it is
    Because it's like that, and that's the way it is
    (Repeat these lines til fade)
