That's the Way Life Goes
by Jimmy Cliff



(Written by Jimmy Cliff)

As I walk along the street each day
These are the words I hear some people say
Maybe a girl never dig a guy
A deal is riding high
Today you’re up on top
Tomorrow you’re right down flat
Everybody seem to turn their back
You’re all alone on your own
Without a home no place to roam

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

That’s the way life goes tomorrow one never knows
That’s the way life goes today
Don’t you know
That’s the way life goes tomorrow one never knows
That’s the way life goes today

Now another fella told me that
And I believe this for a fact
Nobody knows that when they’re down and out
Make you feel you’re left out
When you get up on your feet again
Everybody wants to be your friend
Telling you on them you can depend
Now you’re a king
Got everything
You’re my friend
You can sing

Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

That’s the way life goes tomorrow one never knows
That’s the way life goes today
Don’t you know it
That’s the way life goes tomorrow one never knows
That’s the way life goes today

Don’t you know it
That’s the way life goes tomorrow one never knows
That’s the way life goes today
