Way Of The Land Lyrics

Man rolls out of bed and he knots his tie Gulps his coffee as he says goodbye Drags his car down a one-way street Got appointments to keep It's the way of the land He works in a room with the windows closed Got no time for the open road Punches out at a quarter to five Feels a little bit more alive It's the way of the land

He used to dream of Robin Hood He used to make his plans to race through Sherwood Forest with a longbow in his hand And Friar Tuck and Marian would call him hero then He'd rob the rich and help the poor to understand, man to man, it was the way of the land

Woman wakes up and she makes the bed Got a thousand troubles running through her head Drags her body through another day for a little under minimum wage It's the way of the land Got no job but she works full time Get the kids on the bus and the washing on the line and the rushing and the planning and the grocery shop Having dinner ready seven o'clock It's the way of the land

She used to dream of Tinkerbelle She dreamt of Peter Pan Of scouting distant islands Finding treasures in the sand She'd battle Captain Hook until he'd lost his other hand and clap so hard that every child would live again, to ride the wind It's the way of the land

I dreamed a dream just the other night My mama walked and my daddy cried and their eyes were bright as shooting stars And they held each other hard You understand...

They used to dream of travelling They used to make those plans Fred Astaire and Ginger in the ballrooms of romance But time is hard on heroes They never had the chance I dreamed a dream the other night and knew somehow that they're dancing now 'cause it's the way of the land It's the way of the land
