The Lyrics

"Welcome to 'The Real World' Julie said to me
Via MTV
In '93
Or '92
I don't know or give a hoot
Well they never lived the dream of the Cleavers
on "Leave it to Beaver"
I'd have to think the best of them
Is still hiding
Off camera

They love to yell and
Make a great big scene
But who would watch them
If they kept it clean?

Sometimes those people can be so annoying,
Makes you wanna scream at the
Top of your lungs
I just found out what a dumb thing is "The Real World",
Just a ploy you got to rise above

So the bad boys and girls get the most attention,
Not to mention
Picking noses
Or maybe worse
Like Puck for example, oh man was he cursed
And all of us viewers
We're getting older
I wonder if we'll ever watch anything better
While in our memories
Season one was best

They love to yell and
Make a great big scene
But who would watch them
If they kept it clean?

Sometimes those people can be so annoying,
Makes you wanna scream at the
Top of your lungs
I just found out what a dumb thing is "The Real World",
Just a ploy you got to rise above

Eric was invincible
Or at least so he thought

Sometimes those people can be so annoying,
Makes you wanna scream at the
Top of your lungs
I just found out what a dumb thing is "The Real World",
Just a ploy you got to rise above

I couldn't wait for the ten year reunion
Thought I'd like to see them all once more
But when I actually saw the reunion
I forgot what I used to watch them for
