Some people are always Heaven made
Some people will live impermanent for the rest of their days
Time marches on
Yesterday is better than tomorrow

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

It's the law of the land, my brother, oh
Whether you like it or you'll understand, ah hey hey
It's the law of the land, hey hey, hey hey
'Cause made by almighty men

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

It's the law of the land, well well well
Whether you'll like it or you'll understand, you can't change it
It's the law of the land, ah how
'Cause made by almighty men, oh hey

Hey, it's the law, the law of the land
Whether you'll like it or you'll understand
It's the law, the law of the land
'Cause made by almighty men

A teacher man can't be found
Until you find yourself, think about it
You might not like being, well you ought, but you'd better start like it
But you sure can't be nobody else

In other words, I can't be you, ain't no quit, yeah
You can't be me, well well
That's all with you, my sister and brother
And that's the way that good life meant to be, hey ho

It's the law of the land, well
Whether you like it or you'll understand, say say
It's the law of the land, hey yeah oh
'Cause made by almighty men

Look at here

The tools of a man's day has got him by corrupt
For your own protection your Gods you must love
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'll understand
It's the law of the land, well well well
'Cause made by almighty men, aha

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

Songwriters
Whitfield, Norman J.
