Why Does It Go On?

This song is by Rod Stewart and appears on the album A Little Misunderstood - The Sixties Sessions (2001).

You know it ain't right to beat a man when he's down
Know it ain't right to eat when the hunger's around
It keeps on worryin' me, as all around I see
And still it goes on
Why does it go on?
Why does it go on?

You know it ain't right to take another man's life
You know it ain't right to take another man's wife
Keeps gettin' through to me, as everywhere I see
Why does it go on?
Why does it go on?
Why does it go on?

They don't want love today
It's headin' all the way
They'll burn your book and pencil boy
Throw your mind away

A man don't steal, but has to work for his pay
(Let me tell you one thing)
A poker man deals from the top when he plays
But all good things we take
We don't build, we just break
Why does it go on?
Why does it go on?
Why does it go on?

They don't want love today
It's headin' all the way
They'll burn your book and pencil boy
Throw your mind away

A man don't steal, but has to work for his pay
(Let me tell you one thing)
A poker man deals from the top when he plays
But all good things we take
We don't build, we just break
Why does it go on?
Why does it go on?
Why does it go on ? yeah
