"Can't Cheat Karma" as written by and Stephen John Lake....



One - Two - Three - Go
I've got an ego
It won't let me go
What am I gonna do?

A - be - see - D
Paranoia's killing me
I'm dying on my aching feet
What a way to go

Roll up - Roll up
People always stroll up
Say "Why don't you grow up?"
No thank you!

Big cats, small cats
Some cats are fat cats
Those cats are bad cats
What we gonna do?

There's an awful lot of people in the world today
There's an awful lot of trouble in the streets these days
And it doesn't seem to matter what you do or say
If a change is gonna come you've got to help it on its way

A change is gonna come before too long I know
Peace has gotta come, well, I could be wrong I know
But I just don't know what I can do

You don't trust me and I don't trust you
I bet you wish you did and I know I do
Why have you got secrets? Cause I know you have
If you've got something to hide then it must be bad

A change is gonna come before too long I know
Peace has gotta come, well, I could be wrong I know
But I just don't know what I can do

You don't trust me and I don't trust you
I bet you wish you did and I know I do
Why have you got secrets? Cause I know you have
If you've got something to hide then it must be bad

A change is gonna come before too long I know
Peace has gotta come, well, I could be wrong I know
But I just don't know what I can do

    General Comment"People always stroll up
    Say "Why don't you grow up?"
    No thank you! "

    I think this is a little about maturity not mattering inside age.

    Great song.

    General Commentit's probably about individuality. Not on a strict bad sense, but how we deal with other people and with our own personality. How we deal with inevitable difference between people (big cats, small cats, some cats are fat cats), suggesting we should avoid the judgement that try to stabilish some kind of pattern (people always stroll up say "why don't you grow up") and try to find a peaceful way of living. But it is more about feeling confused in what to do dealing with the differences than a proposal of how we should live our lifes. Really great song, very sensible (reminds me someone special)

    General Commenti couldve sworn this was about the state of the world...

    "big cats small cats some cats are fat cats" being the fat cats with their big businesses. people strolling up saying to 'grow up' and basically, grow out of this sense that you can change the world, even though he says 'i just dont know what i can do'--to change things, that is.
    if a change is gona come you've got to help it on its way

    General CommentYes, quiet a good song!! I think it's just about Karma and how world is wrong... bad people should be punish but everything is messed up and whatever good things you say and do you won't be reward...
