It Ain't Easy - MAXI 1987

written by : P.king/M.Birch/R.Ellington/R.Harris


When I was a boy
I never knew much joy
I only spoke when I was told to speak
To sit up straight and be well behaved
And to eat when I was told to eat
As I grew up I got to realize in order to survive
You've got to shout real loud and fight real hard
So you can stay alive

It ain't easy
Lord it ain't easy
Living in the world today
Living in the world today

When I reached my teens
I was on the scene
Going raving and getting high
And though I hated the world
But I loved my girl
and for my best friend I would die
Now I am a man I get to understand
Some life philosophy
You've got to take what you can from life today
Cause tomorrow may never be

It ain't easy
Lord it ain't easy
Living in the world today yeh
Living in the world today

Now the years have passed
And the time is moving faster every day
I take the good with the bad
And dance with the sad
As I move along the way
Been in love nothing lost
And now I stand and watch
our children play
And when they ask why does
that man look so sad
I just turn to them and say

It ain't easy
Lord it ain't easy
Living in the world today Oh~
Living in the world today Oh~

It ain't easy
Lord it ain't easy
Living in the world today Oh~
Living in the world today Oh~

Can't you see living ain't easy
Can't you see living ain't easy
Today today today.....
