the real deal lyrics – john anderson

i kept putting it off like i always do
had one clean sock but a man needs two
so i drove on down to the wash ‘n wear
i swear it was a hundred and ten there

she was folding her clothes by the c*ke machine
hottest thing i’d ever seen
cotton dress clinging to her like a glove
it took all of a minute to fall in love

i’d a bet you a hundred that i’d never find
that one in a million
that one of a kind
i was standing still, spinning my wheels
when i came face to face with the real deal

you’re gonna need some help, she said with a smile
or, boy, you’re gonna be here a while
if you pay for dinner we can call it square
i took her hand and we took it from there

i’d a bet you a hundred that i’d never find
that one in a million
that one of a kind
i was standing still, spinning my wheels
when i came face to face with the real deal

love’s gonna do what love’s gonna do
you can’t make love happen to you
i was lookin’ too hard for love that true
the real deal came out of the blue

i’d a bet you a hundred that i’d never find
that one in a million
that one of a kind
i was standing still, spinning my wheels
when i came face to face with the real deal

now i know how good it feels
to come face to face with the real deal
