Abc – Welcome To The Real World lyrics

I was a rich man, I was a thief

I was a sailor, shipwrecked on a reef

I was a coward, I was afraid

I was couragious, man I was brave

Until the oceans dry

Until the day you die

Until the stars fall out the sky

Welcome to the real world baby

Welcome to the way things are

Welcome to the real world darling

Step on for shangri-la

Welcome to the real world baby

Paradise guarantee

Welcome to the real world

Come and see what we've bequeathed

I was an angel, idolised

I was a devil in a disguise

I was a stalion, I was a mule

I was misguided, but nobody's fool


The day that I was born, daddy placed me on his knee

Said son you've got to be, a better man than me

You're inherriting the world, make your mark on history

Welcome to the real world, be what you've got to be

Welcome to the real world
