[Lupe Fiasco]
Uh, Food & Liquor 
Yeah, my man said he wanted something real, 
Real, real, real, real
 Something he could recognize, something he could feel,
Feel, feel, feel, feel
Baby girl said she was in the mood for something real,
Real, real, real, real
 Something that could make her move
 Something she could feel, feel, feel, feel

Lust, sometimes can override trust
She said that's why she gave it up
My man said blood spilled out of everything he touched 
He crushed everything he crushed  Ruined everything he loved, he just wanted to rush
 Blamed it on the times being rough  Doing dirt, with the devil, chasing after the dust
Make a fuss, if it's them, but we hush, if it's us

That's why, my momma said she wanted something real,
Real, real, real, real
 Something she could be proud of, something she could feel,
Feel, feel, feel, feel
She said they so used to not having nothing real,
Real, real, real.. real
That they don't know how to act
They don't know how to feel, feel, feel, feel

Life, ain't meant to come around twice
Yeah, that's why I gotta get it right 
They said I got it honest now I gotta give it life
But sleep on it, that's why God give you night 
I mean, I had a dream that, God gave me flight 
Too fly for my own good so, God gave me plight 
If I wake up in the morning now I gotta give 'em sight 
Make 'em see, break 'em free, ain't a G, sho' you right 

The game is not to give 'em nothing real, 
Real, real, real, real
 Nothing they could use, nothing that they could feel,
Feel, feel, feel, feel
Give 'em a bunch of lies and teach 'em that it's real,
Real, real, real, real
So that's all that they a-know
That's all that they a-feel, feel, feel, feel

Struggle, yeah yeah, another sign that God love you
 Cause on the low, being po', make you humble 
Keep they names in my rhymes to try and keep them out of trouble  Cause being po', also teach you how to hustle 
All they want is some shoes or some rims for they bubble 
Now that I got my own, I can hit them with a couple 
Cuff, my homies so they ain't got no reason to cuff you
That's my plan, if I can, on the man, up above you

That's why, I gotta give 'em something real,
Real, real, real, real
 Something they could recognize, something they could feel,
Feel, feel, feel, feel
To my homies on the block I gotta give 'em something real,
Real, real, real, real
 Something that'll make 'em stop
 Something they can feel, feel, feel, feel

Yo! For real, really real, yeah!
Know what it is, woo!
Baby girl said she was in the mood for something real,
Real, real, real, real
Let's go!

[Sarah Green]
So real, so real
