Just for fun he says "Get a job"

That's just the way it is

Some things will never change

That's just the way it is

But don't you believe them

They say hey little boy you can't go

Where the others go

'Cause you don't look like they do

Said hey old man how can you stand

To think that way

Did you really think about it

Before you made the rules

He said, Son

That's just the way it is

Some things will never change

That's just the way it is

But don't you believe them

Well they passed a law in '64

To give those who ain't got a little more

But it only goes so far

Because the law won't change another's mind

When all it sees at the hiring time

Is the line on the color bar

That's just the way it is

Some things will never change

That's just the way it is

But don't you believe them

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
