"Real Girl" by Dire Straits.

The song “Real Girl” is a very rare song by Dire Straits, which is actually a demo song from their first demo album tape. On July 27th, 1977, Dire Straits recorded the following demos: “Wild West End,” “Sultans of Swing,” “Down to The Waterline,” “Scared Loving,” and “Water of Love.”

On September 11th, 1977, the band recorded three demo songs for the album, which today we all very well knew them as the songs “Setting Me Up,” “Eastbound Train,” and “Real Girl.”

Finally, in October of 1977, they recorded another three songs for BBC Radio London. The songs were: “Southbound Again,” “In The Gallery,” and “Six Blade Knife.”

This 1977 alternative demo album was recorded during the period of 5 months, from July to November 1977. The duration of this album including all the songs is approximate of 51-minutes.

Many people have no idea that this song is actually existing, and because of that below is the music video of “Real Girl,” as well as the lyric of the song, so you can enjoy it during listening to the definitely earliest sounds of the British rock band Dire Straits.

LYRICS

I don’t want no suckers, head f**kers, bad luckers
Dream buyers, good flyers or just lyers
Back biters, up fighters, brighters too
I want a real girl just like
A real girl just like you

Gimme no actresses, ‘n distresses, ‘n strangenesses,
Men owners, hard loaners,
I just want no car
Smooth operators just ain’t gonna do
I want a real girl just like
A real girl just like you

Don’t give me no pseuders, prooders, funny fooders
They’re just looking for takers, man rappers
Don’t like selfers, on the shelfers
Don’t give a damn, oh no
I want a real girl just like
A real girl just like you

Don’t give me no stargazers, chasers of passing phases,
Three weekers, soul seekers, freakers,
Speeders, bleeders
Feel only I want a real girl just like
A real girl just like you

Tell her, tell her…
Only want to have a shelter when things go wrong
Romancer, good dancer,
Ice breaker… love maker

Don’t give me no suckers, head f**kers, bad luckers,
Dream buyers, half-lives, just a lives,
Back biters, uptightness,
Happens to…
I want a real girl just like
A real girl just like you
