It Ain't Easy

(Ron Davies)

When you climb to the top of the mountain
Look out over the sea
Think about the places perhaps where a young man could be
Then you jump back down to the rooftops
Look out over the town
Think about all of the strange things circulating round

  It ain't easy, it ain't easy
  It ain't easy to get to heaven when you're going down

Well all the people have got their problems
That ain't nothing new
But with the help of the good Lord
We can all pull on through
We can all pull on through
We get there in the end
Sometimes they'll take you right up and sometimes down again


Satisfaction, satisfaction
Keep me satisfied
I've got the love of a coochie coochie woman
She calling from inside
She's a-calling from inside
Tryin' to get to you
What the woman really wants you can give her something too, mmm
