You Can't Win Lyrics by Michael Jackson


Michael Jackson Lyrics

You Can't Win Lyrics
You can't win
You can't break even
And you can't get out of the game
People kee sayin'
Things are gonna change
But they look us like
You're stayin' the same

You can't win
Get over your head
And you only have yourself to blame
You can't win Child
(You can't win Child)
You ain't break even
And you can't get out of the game


You can't win
The world keeps movin'
And you're standin' far behind
People keep sayin'
Things'll get better
(Just to ease your state of mind)
(So you lean back, and you smoke that smoke)
(And you drink your glass of wine)
So you can't win, Child
You can't break even
And you can't get out of the game

You can't win, you can't win no way
If your story stays the same
(You ain't winnin'),
No, no,
(But it's nice to see you)
(I'm awfully glad you came)
(Better cool it 'cause
It ain't abour losin')
Then the world has got no shame
You can't win, Child
You can't break even
You can't get out of the game

You can't win
You can't break even
Ain't the way it's supposed to be
(You'll be spendin'),
No, no
(Your little bit of money)
While someone else rides for free
(Learn your lesson), ooh,
(Refuel your mind)
(Before someone blows out your flame)

You can't win, Child. No!
You can't win
You can't win, Child. No!
You can't win
You can't win, Child. No!
You can't win
You can't win, Child. No!
You can't win

You can't win, Child
You can't break even
And you can't get out of the game
You can't get out of the game
You can't get out (ugh!) of the game
No, no...
