Law of the Land

This song is by The Temptations and appears on the album Emperors Of Soul (1994).

Some people will always have it made
Some people will live in poverty for the rest of their days
Time marches on
Yesterday is dead and gone
Life is uncertain, let me hear you say, "yeah"
Death is final, yes it is
There'll be days of sunshine and laughter
But don't forget you're gonna have to shed some tears - oho

It's the law of the land - my brother - oh
Whether you like it or you understand - ah hey hey
It's the law of the land - hey hey hey hey
Laws made by almighty man

Live by The Good Book, if you're able
You must play your cards on top of the table
When you gamble, you either win or lose
In life, ev'rybody's gotta pay some dues - well

It's the law of the land - well well well
Whether you like it or you understand - you can't change it
It's the law of the land - ah-how
Laws made by almighty man - oh hey

(..)

Hey, it's the law, the law of the land
Whether you like it or you understand
It's the law, the law of the land
Laws made by almighty man

Being somebody can't be found
Until you find yourself - think about it
You might not like being who you are, but you'd better start liking it
'Cos you sure can't be nobody else
In other words, I can't be you - ain't no way, yeah
You can't be me - well, well
That's how it is, my sisters an' brothers
And that's the way the Good Lord meant it to be - hey-ho

It's the law of the land - well
Whether you like it or you understand - say say
It's the law of the land - hey yeah oh
Laws made by almighty man

Look here
Most of a man's day is governed by a clock
For your own protection, your doors you must lock
What goes around comes around
And what goes up, yeah, must come down - aha

It's the law of the land - well well well well
Whether you like it or you understand
It's the law of the land - well well well
Laws made by almighty man - aha

It's the law of the land - ev'rybody else say
Whether you like it or you understand ...
