Chuck Jackson – (It Never Happens) In Real Life lyrics

It never happens
It never happens
In real life

In the storybook
The hero, young and brave
Fights to win his girl
And vows to be her slave

But it never happens
Never happens
Never happens in real life

Cinderella lost her slipper
At the King's ball
But she found a prince
So handsome, so tall

[Repeat CHORUS]

Billy and Mary
Go steady now
I saw Johnny take Mary to the prom
Yes, I did

Maybe I'm silly
But I know somehow
Someday, my queen will come along

Hurry to my heart
And give your love to me
Change my lonely life
And I will believe

It never happens
Never happens
It ever happens in real life

It never happens in real life
It never, it never happens in real life
No, no, no, no
