Come and see the real thing
Come and see the real thing
Come and see

Come and see the real thing
Come and see the real thing
Come and see

There's a meaning there
But the meaning there doesn't really mean a thing
Come and see the real thing
Come and see the real thing
Come and see

I am the real thing

Trying hard to understand that, really not, you're seeing me
Trying hard to understand that, really not, you're seeing me

There's a meaning there
But the meaning there doesn't really mean a thing
Come and see the real thing
Come and see the real thing
Come and see

I am the real thing

I am not seeing you
I am not seeing you

Trying hard to understand that, really not, you're seeing me
Trying hard to understand that, really not, you're seeing me

There's a meaning there
But the meaning there doesn't really mean a thing
Come and see the real thing
Come and see the real thing
Come and see

I am the real thing

I am not seeing you
I am not seeing you

I am the real thing
I am the real thing
