  • Some people are made of plastic
    And you know some people are made of wood
    Some people have hearts of stone
    Some people are up to no good

    But baby I'm for real
    I'm as real as real can get
    If what you're looking for is real loving
    Then what you see is what you get

    What you see (what you see) is what you get (is what you get)
    What you see (what you see) is what you get (is what you get)
    I said what you see (what you see) is what you get now baby (is what you get)
    And the real thing is the best thing yet (the best thing yet)

    You know some people are made of lies
    To bring you down
    And shame your name
    But baby, I have good intentions

    'Cause breaking hearts just ain't my game
    All I want to do is love you
    And sugar I won't pin you with regret
    If what you're looking for is real loving
    Then what you see is what you get (I have to say it again)

    What you see (what you see) is what you get (is what you get, look at me)
    What you see (what you see) is what you get (is what you get)
    I mean what you see (what you see) is what you get now baby (is what you get)
    And the real thing is the best thing yet (the best thing yet)

    What you see is what you get
    I got a real love, come and get it! I gotta know, you can handle it!

    What you see (what you see) is what you get (is what you get, look at me now)
    What you see (what you see) is what you get (is what you get)
    I got to say it now, what you see (what you see) is what you get (is what you get)
    Every day now, what you see (what you see) got to be what you get (is what you get) Writer/s: ANTHONY HESTER
