The Way Things Go

The Way Things Go

See the girl in that Mercedes
Where’s she going, where’s she been
Do you think she’d be my lover
Would she even be my friend
I keep looking for the next thing
My eyes squarely on the prize
Once or twice I thought I had it
But then much to my surprise

Chorus:
It ain’t up to me
It ain’t up to you
That’s just the way it is
There’s nothing we can do
It ain’t what you think
It ain’t what you know
It’s just the way things go

I once knew a guy named Eddie
Had a dog whose name was Earl
He said man I love this old dog
More than I could love a girl
He gave up the chase years ago
Said it’s easier this way
That dog he’ll love me forever
And believe every word I say

Chorus:
It ain’t up to me
It ain’t up to you
That’s just the way it is
There’s nothing we can do
It ain’t what you think
It ain’t what you know
It’s just the way things go

Well my granddad was a rounder
Right up to the day he died
I guess he sprung a leak someplace
He could neither fill nor hide
After he outlived two good sons
He outlasted two bad wives
Then he found if he quit caring
It was easy to survive

Chorus:
It ain’t up to me
It ain’t up to you
That’s just the way it is
There’s nothing we can do
It ain’t what you think
It ain’t what you know
It’s just the way things go
