Man Has to Struggle (Van Morrison)

Man makes his money and they call him rich Deep down inside he knows that life's still a bitch Man tries to keep things but they're taken away Man has to struggle all the live long day Man has to sweat and toil his life filled with trouble Man got to step and fetch it on the double Man has to work so hard to make it all pay Man has to struggle all the live long day Man keeps on moving 'cause he can t keep still Man has to set his goals and climb up the hill Man sees the mountains and the deep blue sky Man has to struggle till the day that he die Well yes siree Bob them there's the breaks That's how it is my friend don't make no mistake Man has to take some action all of the time Man by his nature's never satisfied Man just can't vegetate no matter what they say Man has to make it all the live long day Man has to create karma that s the way that it is Man has to keep on going way beyond his will Man has to keep on being 'cause there s nothing else And man just always has to go for himself Take all the gurus when they meditate Transcend the mundane into some altered state You just might get there, but you'll have to pay Man's got to struggle all the live tong day Well yes siree now Bob them there's the breaks That s how it is my friend don't make no mistake Man has to watch the weather and the food that he eats Man has to keep fit else he's prone to disease No matter what he does there's stress every which way Man has to struggle all the live long day Man is in conflict with his natural self Man has to suppress his own desires and instincts Man has to work so hard to keep them at bay Man has to struggle all the live long day Man was told that he was born in original sin By people long ago that were conning him Man is so out of touch he can't trust himself But man's still got to win by cunning and stealth
