"The Real Thing" as written by Martin Fry and Mark White....
It's real, yeah so real, yeah

A mongoose can smile at a cobra
But that cobra will always be a snake
Diamante can shine like a diamond
But you know, like I know that rock will be fake

It's the real thing, the real thing
Nothing but the real thing, it's real
It's the real thing, the real thing
Nothing but the real thing, it's real
It's real, yeah, so real, yeah

You can xerox the Mona Lisa
Deadpan Da Vinci in every detail
Might beat customs on a home made visa
But false papers only gets you in jail

It's the real thing, the real thing
Nothing but the real thing, it's real
It's the real thing, the real thing
Nothing but the real thing, it's real
It's real, yeah, so real, yeah

Life wears a smile on its face
But it comes with a sting in its tail
Make believe fables have their place
But only a fool, only a fool
Only a fool believes fairy tales

I heard all the lies that they'll tell ya
"Phone me, baby, the check's in the mail"
Well, as fantasy, it might please ya
But as the real thing, it does nothing but fail

It's the real thing, the real thing
Nothing but the real thing, it's real
It's the real thing, the real thing
Nothing but the real thing, it's real

So real, it's the, oh yeah, real, yeah
It's real, yeah so real, yeah
It's real, yeah and so real, so real, yeah
It's real, yeah so real, yeah

It's real, yeah so real, yeah
It's real, yeah
It's real, yeah so real, yeah
