"that's the way god planned it" as written by and Billy Preston....
Why can't we be humble
Like the good Lord said
He promised to exalt us
For love is the way

How men be so greedy
When there's so much left
All things are God given
And they all have been blessed

That's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants it to be, didn't He
Well, that's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants it to be, for you and me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Let not your heart be troubled
Let mourning sobbing cease
Learn to help one another
And live in perfect peace

If we just be humble
Like the good Lord said
He promised to exalt us
For love is the way

That's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants it to be, doesn't He
You better believe me
That's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants it to be, for you and me
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

That's the way, alright
Come on, come on, come on

I hope you get this message
And where you won't others will
You don't understand me
But I'll love you still

That's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants it to be
You better believe me
That's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants, He wants it to be

That's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants it to be
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
That's the way God planned it
That's the way God wants it to be
Oh, yeah
