Didn' t I raise my voice
High enough for you
I was running like a fugitive all the time
Risking rejection from my own people yeah
Now that you got what you wanted
You don' t even know my name
It' s so funny, we don' t talk anymore
Be good to the people on your
Way up the ladder
Cause you' ll need them on your way down

Chorus:
That' s the way it is

Didn' t I raise fists high enough for you
I guess I can' t pat myself on the shoulder
For a job well done
Dodging bullets in the streets
I was there
Risking rejection from my own people yeah
Now that you got what you wanted
You don' t even know my name
remember and
Be good to the people on your way
Up the ladder 'cause you' ll need
Them on your way down

Chorus:
That' s the way it is
