Real Life Doesn't Have a Rewind Button
Real vs Media/Pretend Violence Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Linda K. Williams

    
This song is available on "Positive Choices for Youth"

CHORUS
Real life doesn't have a rewind button;
You can't go back and erase what you have done.
A moment that you're weak can take a lifetime to pay for.
Think before you act; you'll be so glad you did.
Forever is a long, long time;
Forever is a long, long time.
(1)
Well, cartoons and stooges make it seem like
The quickest and easiest way
To settle an argument---get what you want---
Is to ZAP the other guy---biff, bam, pow!
But life is not a TV show;
No, life is not a TV show.

(CHORUS)
Real life doesn't have a rewind button;
You can't go back and erase what you have done.
A moment that you're weak
can take a lifetime to pay for.
Think before you act; you'll be so glad you did.
Forever is a long, long time;
Forever is a long, long time.
(2)
Well, in real life it doesn't pay to be
A stooge or a cartoon "hero"!
Use brains, not brawn; use words---work it out;
'Cause real violence really hurts.
Life is not a TV show;
No, life is not a TV show.
CHORUS
(3)
Taking chances with your very own life
Works the same; we're not bionic!
Don't let drugs or foolish stunts
Blow your one shot at the life you've got.
Life is not a TV show;
No, life is not a TV show.
CHORUS

(repeat last line and fade)
Forever is a long, long time!
