It is what it is
Lyrics
It is what it is
It ain't what it ain't
It don't matter how you see it
The truth ain't gonna change
Don't matter if it's beautiful
Or ugly or plain
s'what it is
Ain't what it ain't

Moses came down from the mountain
With a tablet in his hands
He said y'all listen I been talkin' with the Lord
And this here's what he commands
Then someone said one and two's OK
But I don't like nine and ten
Moses said he ain't given you a choice
You'll do 'em all, Amen!

It is what it is
It ain't what it ain't
It don't matter how you see it
The truth ain't gonna change
Don't matter if it's beautiful
Or ugly or plain
s'what it is
Ain't what it ain't

Abe Lincoln as a President
Said slavery was wrong
And even had to go to war
So folks could sing his freedom song
Now we're all treated equally
Ain't no more colour ban
While jewel'ry's still made
By tiny hands in Pakistan

It is what it is
It ain't what it ain't
It don't matter how you see it
The truth ain't gonna change
Don't matter if it's beautiful
Or ugly or plain
s'what it is
Ain't what it ain't

Now Elvis was the King o' Rock'n'Roll
Man, what a show!
But he did drugs and then he died
And some folks took to mournin' so
They built a church for Elvis God and
Elvis lives, they said
Elvis ain't the Lord ma man,
Elvis man, he dead!

It is what it is
It ain't what it ain't
It don't matter how you see it
The truth ain't gonna change
Don't matter if it's beautiful
Or ugly or plain
s'what it is
Ain't what it ain't

Blow that blow that blow that whistle
As loud as you can blow
Governments and corporations
People let 'em know
TV spin and cover ups
And knowledge they deny
No matter how they dress it up
A lie is still a lie

It is what it is
It ain't what it ain't
It don't matter if you dress it up
In finery and paint
Your story's on thin ice
And I can see right through your lies
s'what it is
Ain't what it ain't

It is what it is
It ain't what it ain't
It don't matter how you see it
The truth ain't gonna change
Don't matter if it's beautiful
Or ugly or plain
s'what it is
Ain't what it ain't
