  • Showbiz dinners and the free champagne
    Men in suits who think they know it all
    No one knows me but they know my name
    That's not real to me

    Hotel lobby to the aeroplane, another country but they start to look the same
    Watch the world behind a windowpane, That's not real to me.

    When I see my babies run
    When all the madness has been and gone
    I'll raise my family and live in peace
    Now that's what's real to me
    Real to me

    Dying flowers in a dressing room
    A dangerous time to let your head make up its own mind
    Got me thinking that the spirit's flown, that's not real to me

    When I see my babies run
    When all the madness has been and gone
    I'll raise my family and live in peace
    Now that's what's real to me

    Picnics in the garden and the children they can play,
    The first day of the summer and I'll laze here all the day
    And we'll invite the family round and drink some English tea,
    Then I raise up my finger and watch football on TV.

    When I see my babies run
    When all the madness has been and gone
    I'll raise my family and live in peace
    Now that's what's real to me
    That's what's real to me, real to me.
