Lyrics

Like a real smoothie
Walk down the street (Like a real smoothie)
Shuffling his feet (Like a real smoothie)
Right over her shirt (Like a real smoothie)
Watching him spurt (Like a real smoothie)

I can tell at a glance he's happy
With her heart in his fist
He's a decent sort of chappie
Never uses his wrist

Like a real smoothie
He gets it right (Like a real smoothie)
Every night (Like a real smoothie)
Wish I was him (Like a real smoothie)
Not some guy just like Jim (Like a real smoothie)
 
He agrees with almost everyone
He's a friend of us all
He's ornamental and you can easily 
Keep a dozen of him in the hall

Like a real smoothie
Down the King's Road (Like a real smoothie)
Doesn't have to be told (Like a real smoothie)
He does it best (Like a real smoothie)
He comes in his vest (Like a real smoothie)

Like a real smoothie
Oh but he cares (Like a real smoothie)
Nobody wears (Like a real smoothie)
Lookin' alright (Like a real smoothie)
He gets it right (Like a real smoothie)
Oh I wish he would (Like a real smoothie)
Ooh I wish he could (Like a real smoothie)

Like a real smoothie
Like a real smoothie
Like a real smoothie
Like a real smoothie
Like a real smoothie
Like a real smoothie
Like a real smoothie
Like a real smoothie
Like a real smoothie
Like a real smoothie
