作曲:Steve Forbert

Fell for this dream girl in Danville

Just in the Central Time zone

I used to kill hours to meet her on time

And then lost one as well drivin' home

Mexican boy on Doheny

Sellin' a map to stars' homes

Maybe he's homeless

And maybe they're gone

And the afternoon traffic rolls on

Driving a Jaguars impressive

But you can't watch it go by

And the Manhattan skyline is a sight to behold

But prob'ly best through New Jersey based eyes

It is what it is and that's all

What are you going to do

Will some fool look up on a clear day and say

That the sky's not a true enough blue

It never much rains but it's pouring

Everything happens at once

Flat tires and light bulbs while picture frames fall

From the wall where they've hung fine for months

It is what it is and that's all

Lay down a mat by the door

Will some fool rush in from a cloud burst and say

Hell I'm soaked and I'm totally bored

Out there by the interstate the duplex I call home

Ain't quite the quietest place on earth to catch your breath

Non-stop highway sound makes backyard picnics out to lunch

Fact is my next door neighbor's fine completely deaf

Maybe you wish you had money

Then you might think you could live

Life is so brief you may think time a thief

Better live for whatever it gives

Pondering the future you worry

Listen somehow you'll get through

Then you'll look backwards and long for the things

That you'll find it's then too late to do

It is what it is and that's all

When are you going to see

Friends tell you true and your granddad did too

But you won't take advice that comes free

Get what you want you don't want it

Not even glad while you eat

Wait for your flight while the heavyweights fight

And the planes try to land in the sleet

It is what it is and that's all

And birds can't row boats baby blue

Will some fool sit stuck on the runway and say

Hell it's only me this happens to

It is what it is and that's all

It is what it is and that's all
