Her Next Friend: Music

Don't Get Real On Me, Man

(Her Next Friend)
In defeat
My favorite things
Are sections of strings
Lies and deceit

Loaned
To the raving mad
Stark and not so rad
Getting owned

Cheering with forked tongue
High in the stands
Don’t get real on me, man

Remade
Significant gains
Watching every lane
Smoking rocks of jade

Empty
And a raging fraud
Ought to be outlawed
Fitted for a tea

And I have had about
All I can stand
Don’t get real on me, man

Overheard
Them calling out to me
Cut off at the knee
Shaken, iced and stirred

Meant
To be the very best
Redefined success
To the way it went

Cheering with forked tongue
High in the stands
Don’t get real on me, man
Had about
All I can stand
Don’t get real on me, man
