Law of the land
Some people will live impermanent for the rest of their days

Life is uncertain, let me hear you say 'yeah'
There'll be days of sunshine and laughter
It's the law of the land, my brother, oh
It's the law of the land, hey hey hey hey

You must play your cards on top of the table
In life's ev'rybody's got to pay some dues, well
Whether you'll like it or you'll understand, you can't change it
It's the law of the land, ah-how
Hey, it's the law, the law of the land
It's the law, the law of the land
A teacher man can't be found
You might not like being, well you ought, but you'd better start like it
But you sure can't be nobody else
Well well, that's all with you, my sister an' brother
It's the law of the land, well
It's the law of the land, hey yeah oh
Look at here
The tools of a man's day has got him by corrupt
What goes around comes around
And what goes up, yeah, must come down, aha
Whether you like it or you'll understand
'Cause made by almighty men, aha
It's the law of the land, everybody else say
