Express It In Yiddish:
as is, the way you see it, in its existing circumstance, what you see is what you get,
כמו שהוא, כזה ראה וקדש, כפי שאתה רואה אותה, כלה כמות שהיא

אַזוי ווי עס שטייט און גייט
azoy vi es shteyt un geyt
as it stands and goes
כמו שזה עומד והולך

Yiddish is rich with expressions. In fact, sometimes the same phrase can be said in a number of different ways. I try to bring the unique ones, where it is is not obvious from the literal translation what the expression means.
