That's the Way Life Goes Lyrics

As I walk along the street each day
These are the words I hear some people say
Many a girl never dig a guy
Until he's riding high
Today, you're up and tall
And tomorrow, you're right down flat
Everybody seems to turn their back

You're all alone, on your own
Without no home, no place to roam
Hey, hey hey hey, hey hey

That's the way life goes
Tomorrow, one never knows
That's the way life goes today
Don't you know? That's the way life goes
Tomorrow, one never knows
That's the way life goes today

Now, another fella told me that
And I believe this for a fact
Nobody knows you when you're down and out
They make you feel you're left out
If you get back on your feet again
Then everybody wants to be your friend
Telling you on them you can depend

Now you're a king, that's everything
Joy-bells ring and you can sing hey, hey hey
Hey, hey hey

That's the way life goes
Tomorrow, one never knows
That's the way life goes today
Don't you know? That's the way life goes
Tomorrow, one never knows, no, no
That's the way life goes today

Hey, don't you know?
That's the way life goes
Tomorrow, one never knows
That's the way life goes today
Hey, don't you know?
That's the way life goes
