That's the Way It Is (Cash Johnny)

Remember back in school we learned the golden rule Do unto others as you'd have and do to you You're supposed to love me as much as I love you It's a shame that ain't the way it is Lovers in a movie on that great big screen He treats her like she's a queen she treats him like a king Wouldn't that be nice if life is lived that way It's a shame that ain't the way it is I'd like to start each morning with good morning dear And end each night with the goodnight kiss But all I have is your memory with me laying here It's a shame but that's the way it is A love song tells a story of a good love going bad Then paints a pretty pictures of that same love coming back I wish that I could sing it I wish that I could paint it It's a shame that ain't the way it is I'd like to start each morning... It's a shame but that's the way it is
