Labi Siffre – Nothin's Gonna Change lyrics

Life can be funny
Sometimes a shame
Making the same mistakes again and again
It isnґt easy being a man
For a woman itґs harder
Try it in the Sudan

And when youґre winning and when youґve won
You turn around... Your problems just begun
And when youґre losing and when youґve lost
You turn around... It wasnґt worth the cost

How did we make it...
Itґs a mystery
Weґre getting better...
Thatґs news to me
Are we defeated...
Huh! Defeated like hell
We may be losers...
But weґll never tell

Nothinґs Gonna Change
But we donґt give in
Nothinґs Gonna Change
Take it on the chin
Nothinґs Gonna Change
Keep that silly grin
Nothinґs Gonna Change
The only way to win

World wars are over
One and two
Others are raging still just like brand new
The Big Band is with us
Itґs here to stay
Unless the Martians come to take it away

My tv dinner shows a starving face
The kicked a man to death outside my place
We strangle nature
We murder the trees
Forgetting we need the trees to breathe
