Old men crying, young men dying
World still turns as father time looks on, on and on
Children playing, dreamers praying
Laughter turns to tear as love has gone, has it gone?

Oh, it's a hard road
Oh, it's a hard road

Whirlwind churning, lovers learning
On this path of life we can't back down, is it wrong?
Widows weeping, babies sleeping
Life becomes the singer and the song, sing along

Oh, it's a hard road
Carry your own load

Why make the hard road?
Why can't we be friends?
No need to hurry
We'll meet in the end

Why make the hard road?
Why can't we be friends?
No need to worry
Let's sing it again

Brother's sharing, mother's caring
Nighttime falling victim to the dawn, shadows born
Days are calling, time is calling
To the earth another life is born, bloodlines drawn

Oh, it's a hard road
Carry your own load

Oh, it's a hard road
Oh, it's a hard road...

Forget all your sorrow, don't live in the past
And look to the future, 'cause life goes too fast, ya know

Repeat

    the band was recording one day and then they got hungry so they decided to hit a kfc. on the way to the kfc ozzy told geezer to slow down because it was such a bumpy ride. tony replied 'we can't because it won't help ozzy'

    ozzy then replied asking tony, 'jeepers, why not tony?'

    in which bill ward said 'burp' and ozzy said 'I wasn't talking to you billy' which is when tony chimed in and said 'what was the question again ozzy?'

    in frusteration, ozzy asked 'why won't it help if we slow down?'

    tony asked 'what about slowing down?'

    being angry now, ozzy shouted 'man, I just asked geezer to slow down because it was so bumpy, and then you said it wont help, which is when I asked you, why wont slowing down help'

    tony returned asked ozzy, wont help what?'

    ozzy at the end of his wits said 'why wont slowing down help stop the trip to kfc be so bumpy of a ride?'

    tony goes 'oh, I don't know mate?'

    so bill said 'BURP' again

    then right after that geezer shouted 'it wont help because its a HARD ROAD... now shut your cannons because we pulling into kfc. original or extra crispy?'

    as bill goes 'BURP' once more, ozzy and tony said to geezer... 'original or extra crispy what geezer?'

    ... Well, it could of happened... prove me otherwise?
