Matchbox 20
Real World
Original Translation of Slang

I wonder what it's like to be the rainmaker
I wonder what it's like to know that I make the rain
I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on every one
And you can come see them when I'm done,
when I'm done
I wonder what it's like to be a super hero
I wonder where I'd go if I could fly around downtown
From some other planet,
I get this funky high on yellow sun
Boy I bet my friends will all be stunned, they're stunned

CHORUS
Straight up, what did you hope to learn about here?
If I were someone else, would this all fall apart?
Strange, where were you, when we started this gig,
I wish the real world would just stop hassling me

 

I wonder what it's like to be the rainmaker
I wonder what it's like to know that I make the rain
I'd store it in boxes with little yellow tags on every one
And you can come see them when I'm done,
when I'm done
I wonder what it's like to be a super hero
I wonder where I'd go if I could fly around downtown
From some other planet,

funky strange in a good way
Bed

CHORUS
Straight up honestly
If I were someone else, would this all fall apart
gig job (especially a job performing music)
hassling bothering

I wonder what it's like to be the head honcho
I wonder what I'd do if they all did just what I said
I'd shout out an order,
I think we're out of this man get me some
Boy, don't make me wanna change my tone, my tone

CHORUS

Please don't change, please don't break
The only thing that seems to work at all is you
Please don't change, at all from me
To you, and you to me

CHORUS

  head honcho most important person
I wonder what I'd do if they all did just what I said
I'd shout out an order,
I think we're out of this man get me some

don't make me wanna change my tone Don't make me want to change my tone of voice from calm to angry - a typical threat of American parents
