[Intro]
Wise man say, wise man say
Wise man say

You'll never figure out real love
Never figure out real love
You'll never figure out real love


[Verse 1]
It's so crazy, crazy-crazy
I got everything figured out
But for some reason I can never find what real love is about

No doubt
Everything in the world figured out
But I can never seem to find what real love was about

Do you think I sacrifice, real life
For all the fame, and flashing lights
Do you think I sacrifice, a real life
For all the fame, and flashing lights

There is no Gucci I can buy
There is no Louis Vuitton to put on
There is no Y.S.L. that they could sell
To get my heart, out of this hell
And my mind, out of this jail

There is no clothes that I could buy
That could turn, back in time

There is no vacation spot I could fly
That could bring back, a piece of real life

Real life, what does it feel like?
I ask you tonight, I ask you tonight
What does it feel like, I ask you tonight
To live a real life
I just wanna be a real boy

They always say "Kanye, he keeps it real boy"
Pinocchio's story is, I just wanna be a real boy
Pinocchio's story goes, to be a real boy


[Verse 2]
It's funny
Pinocchio, lied, and that's what kept him from it
I tell the truth, and I keep running

It's like I'm lookin for something out there, tryna find something
I turn on the TV, and see me, and see nothing
What does it feel like, to live real life, to be real
Not some facade on TV that no one can really feel

Do you really have the stamina?
For everybody that sees you that say, "Where's my camera?"
For everybody that sees you, to say sign a autograph

For everybody that sees you cryin, say you oughta laugh
You oughta laugh!

I just wanna be a real boy
Pinocchio's story goes, I just wanna be a real boy
Pinocchio's story goes


[Verse 3]
And there is no Gepetto, to guide me
No one, right beside me
The only one, was behind me
I can't find her no more, I can't follow no more
I can't..

The only one that come out on the tour and stays
Back when I was livin at home and this was all a big dream

And the fame will be get got
And the day I moved to L.A., maybe that was all my fault
All my fault to be a real boy, chasin the American dream
Chasin everything we seen, up on the TV screen

And when uh, the Benz was left, and the clothes was left
And the hoes was left, you talk the hoes to death
Thinkin' the money that the-
You spend the dough to death
And tell me what be left, for a real boy!

They say "Kanye, you keep it too real boy"
Perspective, and wise man say
One day, you'll find your way
The wise man say, you'll find your way
The wise man say, you'll find your way
Wise man say
