Lyrics

(Just Gimme ) the Real Thing


It seems to me
Creativity
Is in sharp decline
In the world today

Pop machine, silver screen
Imitate, regurgitate
Some past success
Of a by-gone day

Chorus:
(Just) Give me the real, real thing now
You know what I mean? The real thing
It's got to feel, feel like the real thing
You know what I mean? Give me the real thing

Don't they know
The sequel never equals
Magic is magic
It's the part you don't control

Turn it off
Tell 'em that you want
The original
The heart and soul now

Chorus

But the scary part
Of this piracy of art
Is no one ever knows
The pioneer

So you try to dig
Dig down to the source
But to your suprise
It's disappeared

Give me the real, real thing now
Give me the real, Give me the real thing
