It Ain't Easy Lyrics

by David Bowie

When you get to the top of the mountain
Look all over the sea
Just think about all other places perhaps
Where a young man could be
And you jump back down to the rooftops
Look out across the town
Think about all other strange things circulatin' round

It aint easy, it aint easy
It aint easy to get to Heaven when youre going down

All the people have got their problems
That aint nothing new
With the help of the Good Lord
We can all pull on through
We can all pull on through
Get there in the end
Sometimes it'll take you right up and sometimes down again

It aint easy, it aint easy
It aint easy to get to Heaven when youre going down

Satisfaction, satisfaction, keep me satisfied
I got the love of a hoochie coochi woman
Callin' from inside
She's a-callin' from inside
Tryin' to get to you
For all the woman really want
You can give you somethin' too

It aint easy, it aint easy
It aint easy to get to Heaven when youre going down

It aint easy, it aint easy
It aint easy to get to Heaven when youre going down
