lyrics

HEY COME ON NOW BE REAL
Written in March 2009

Hey come on now be real
These old wounds want to heal
It’s a big job and they’re big shoes to fill
Hey come on now be real

Clever humour and wit… beats
Blood, polish and spit
I know that gentleman with whom you sit,
It’s just humour and wit

I’m an honest cheater trying to make a deal
It’s just me and Saint Peter…
And the court of appeal
But it’s fine
Hold the line
I’ll got up ‘cause I’m certainly not…
Ready to sign

Hey come on now be real
What’s the name of the girl?
Whose innocence you expect me to steal,
Hey come on now be real

Did you believe I could sell? Well,
Honey that’s just untrue
I’ve got a lot baby riding on you…
Did you believe I could sell?

What if we were in love?
And…these two poles weren’t apart
And for a change I considered my heart
What if we were in love?

Then we’d be honest cheaters trying to make a deal
We could talk to Saint Peter and see how he feels but it’s fine, it’s just our time
We’d get up ‘cause we’re certainly not…
Ready to sign.
