(barry mason)[b side of columbia db 7766, 1965]You know it ain’t right to beat a man when he’s downKnow it ain’t right to eat when the hunger’s aroundIt keeps on worryin’ me, as all around I seeAnd still it goes onWhy does it go on ? Why does it go on ? You know it ain’t right to take another man’s lifeYou know it ain’t right to take another man’s wifeKeeps gettin’ through to me, as everywhere I seeWhy does it go on ? Why does it go on ? Why does it go on ? They don’t want love todayIt’s headin’ all the wayThey’ll burn your book and pencil boyThrow your mind awayA man don’t steal, but has to work for his pay(let me tell you one thing)A poker man deals from the top when he playsBut all good things we takeWe don’t build, we just breakWhy does it go on ? Why does it go on ? Why does it go on ? They don’t want love todayIt’s headin’ all the wayThey’ll burn your book and pencil boyThrow your mind awayA man don’t steal, but has to work for his pay(let me tell you one thing)A poker man deals from the top when he playsBut all good things we takeWe don’t build, we just breakWhy does it go on ? Why does it go on ? Why does it go on ? yeah
