Song Description

This is from the second side of East Farewell. Slick Rick is singing this to Natalie.

Story Behind the Song

As East Farewell becomes bigger different people show up and Slick Rick is one. He is a con man but really falls for Sweet Natalie. He tries to hustle her but she sort of turns the tables.

Lyrics

Welcome to the Real World
You can forget all about those little girl curls.
Be careful, be strong and be smart,
one little mistake and they'll tear you apart.
Tear you apart.

You have to watch who you can trust.
Sometimes they say love but really mean lust.
But I'm sure you'll find out soon enough what's what
with affairs of the heart.
Affairs of the heart.

Say so long to good intentions,
There are no offers made completely free.
You won't find any saints in this city.
No saints at all, except for me.

Be careful but don't be dumb
sometimes the total is more than the sum.
If you find someone who could be the real one you better let him know
right from the start.
Right from the start.

Know your turf and stand your ground.
Claim it as yours if there's no one else around.
Someone will always try and put you down.
Don't give them the chance
don't let 'em start.
Don't let 'em start.

Say so long to good intentions,
There are no offers made completely free.
You won't find any saints in this city.
No saints at all, except for me.
