Easy Street
Lyrics
Easy Street
© 2009 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

It ain?t easy ? living on Easy Street
Too much traffic coming all the time ? all the time
It ain?t easy ?living up on the top of the hill
Just too many steps you got to climb

It ain?t easy ? being a hero
Standing way up there on your pedestal ? so nice and tall
Trouble is that when you?re always looking down
You realize how far you got to fall

Half of what you think ? you know ? is really fiction
The other half (what you just can?t believe) is really true
Cause, just like you and me ? the folks on Easy Street
Have it good ? and have it bad ? and have it both ways in between ? oh ?

It ain?t easy ? being a movie star
When all the world around you is a stage ?
Reality is real up on the silver screen ? oh sure ?
But love is just a part you get to play

It ain?t easy ? being Superman
With so much evil business all around ? all around
It ain?t easy ? even if you can fly ? oh my ?
An awful lot of things make Superman cry

Half of what you think ? you know ? is really fiction
The other half (what you just can?t believe) is really true
Cause, just like you and me ? the folks on Easy Street
Have it good ? and have it bad ? and have it both ways in between

Like too much money in the bank ? just makes them crazy
And too much time in limousines ? just makes them lonely
And, I?ve heard them complain ? that having too much fame
Is driving them insane ? way up there on Easy Street ? oh ?

Sometimes beauty queens don?t feel so beautiful ? no, no!
And astronauts get homesick (walking) on the moon ? on the moon!
And presidents and kings ? they got important things ?
To occupy their minds ? and make them worry all the time ? oh ?

It ain?t easy ? living on Easy Street
Too much traffic coming on the road ? what a road!
It ain?t easy ? living (way) up on top of the hill ? no, no ? for sure!
So much to carry up ? such a heavy load ? oh, heavy load, load, load!
And too much traffic coming on the road ? oh, what a road, road, road!
Oh no! It ain?t easy ? living on Easy Street
