Anders Osborne – Real World lyrics
Well I'm tired of listening
Sick and tired of waiting
And I've had enough
It's time to stop
The real world from going down

Mother earth she's crying
And our children are dying
And they spill their guts
All over us
While we keep the world go 'round

Don't want to hear about the good 'ol days
When you could reap just what you sow
All I know is that the rich are gettin' fatter
And the poor kicked around by the law

Yes I'm tired of listening
To them tired politicians
And I've had enough
It's time to stop
The real world from going down

(Instrumental break)

They've got their own neighborhood
It's all gold plates and cherry wood
They say they care
But they're never here
Down in the real world

They drive mercedes
I take my moped down to "PAY-LESS"
And I trade my shoes
For a gallon of the blues
Here in the real world

You keep talking 'bout the good 'ol days
When you could reap just what you sow
Here we are, the rich are getting richer
And the poor kicked around by the law

Yes I'm tired of listening
To them tired politicians
And I've had enough
It's time to stop
The real world from going down

I said, "OH NO, OH NO"
Stick together now, oh no
The real world is going down

Yes I'm tired of listening
To them tired politicians
And I've had enough
It's time to stop
The real world from going down

(Vocal ad-Lib)

The real world is going down
