The Real Thing Lyrics

by 2 Unlimited

[RAY:] It's the real thing that makes your body swing
Open your ears for the techno rap sing
Back on the track, no my name ain't Jack
You try to criticize, so now step back
I travelled the world all round and round
Make a lot of heads go upside down
If it ain't rough, no, it ain't no thing
Just let yourself go cause you're rolling with the real thing

[AINTA:] We're going for the real thing
[RAY:] Go! Go! Let yourself go
Go! Go! Let yourself go
[AINTA:] Searchin' for the real thing
[RAY:] Do this! Do this!
[AINTA:] Come on, come on
[RAY:] Do this! Do this!

[AINTA:] No more waiting, anticipating
We're searching for the real thing
No more waiting, anticipating
We're going for the real thing

[RAY:] I select the thoughts and need from people's minds
Combine it with my own style, I ain't blind
One of a kind make sure I'll find
A way to gain and win cause it's the real thing
The music flows, I lay these rhymes
Time for some action, cause it's about time
Pay close attention, are you out, are you in?
'Cause if you roll, you're rolling with the real thing

[AINTA:] Searchin' for the real thing
[RAY:] Do this! Do this!
[AINTA:] Come on, come on
[RAY:] Do this! Do this!
[AINTA:] We're going for the real thing
[RAY:] Go! Go! Let yourself go
Go! Go! Let yourself go

[AINTA:] No more waiting, anticipating
We're searching for the real thing
No more waiting, anticipating
We're going for the real thing
And we're not gonna stop
Until we reach the highest top
We don't need, to stop
We'll keep on searchin' till we drop

[AINTA:] Never stop the real thing
YEAH!
Give me the real thing
[R:] Cheer, cheer, cheer
Let yourself go
Let yourself go
Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

[AINTA:] No more waiting, anticipating
We're searching for the real thing
No more waiting, anticipating
We're going for the real thing
And we're not gonna stop
Until we reach the highest top
We don't need, to stop
We'll keep on searchin' till we drop

[RAY:] Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
