​Real Life

This song is by Girls Aloud and appears on the album What Will The Neighbours Say? (2004).

'Cause baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moment's got to feel right
'Cause honey if it don't then get out the station
'Cause baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moment's got to feel right
'Cause honey if it don't then get out the station

You gotta get it, you gotta get it
And pretty soon you'll find the figures fit
You gotta get it, you gotta get it
And find your groove before the others trip

It started with a look
And pretty soon it was a Valentine
And when the whole earth shook
I passed him over to a friend of mine

He started as a squeeze
But pretty soon he was a tourniquet
I'll take my life back please
I liked it better with the time to play

Show us your look
I think I'm falling
Show us your look
I'm not done crawling
Show us that look
Or I'll keep stalling you

I was thinking of nights without you
Damn right I'll see it through
And I was thinking of life without me
I know, I know it's just insanity

'Cause baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moment's got to feel right
'Cause honey if it don't then get out the station
'Cause baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moment's got to feel right
'Cause honey if it don't then get out the station

Dance while your dollar going up, up, up
And catch your lucky number while it's rising, rising
Chance comes a calling going knock, knock, knock
It's better to be living than surviving

It started with a kiss
And pretty soon it was a compromise
But with a kung fu twist
I pulled his focus back in on my mind

It started with a drink
That pretty soon became a waterfall
But then my face turned pink
'Cause I believed him when he said he'd call

Show us your look
I think I'm falling
Show us your look
I'm not done crawling
Show us the look
Or I'll keep stalling you

I was thinking of nights without you
Damn right I'll see it through
And I was thinking of life without me
And now I know it's just insanity

'Cause baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moment's got to feel right
'Cause honey if it don't then get out the station
'Cause baby this is real life
You wanna get your mind on your occupation
The moment's got to feel right
'Cause honey if it don't then get out the station

Dance while your dollar going up, up, up
And catch your lucky number while it's rising, rising
Chance comes a calling going knock, knock, knock
It's better to be living than surviving

Dance while your dollar going up, up, up
And catch your lucky number while it's rising, rising
Chance comes a calling going knock, knock, knock
It's better to be living than surviving, viving

'Cause baby this is real life
