That's The Way It Goes Lyrics

by George Harrison

There's a man talking on the radio
What he's saying, I don't really know
Seems he's lost some stocks and shares
Stops and stares, he's afraid I know
That's the way it goes

There's a man talking of the Promised Land
He'll acquire it with some krugerand
Subdivide and deal it out
Feel his clout, he can stoop so low
And that's the way it goes

There's an actor who hopes to fit the bill
Sees a shining city on a hill
Step up close and see he's blind
Wined and dined, all he has is pose
And that's the way it goes

There's a fire that burns away the lies
Manifesting in the spiritual eye
Though you won't understand the way I feel
You conceal, all there is to know
And that's the way it goes

That's the way it goes
That's the way it goes
That's the way it goes
That's the way it goes
That's the way it goes
