Welcome to the Real World
by ABC



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 courageous
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

[Chorus]
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 inheriting the world; make your mark on history
Welcome to the real world; be what you've got to be."

Welcome to the real world
