a man applied for work one day

down at the local bank
the manager then set him down
and told him nice and frank
.
there are a lot of crooked folks
who have the urge to steal
you don't check out the counterfeit
to know the one that's real
.
it might look right in feel and size
and maybe even smell
the portrait might be quite precise
believable as hell
.
but you must know the standards
when there is so much as stake
you must check out the genuine
to know the one that's fake
.
when something's held up to the light
the fallacies show through
and you can see the vestiges
of paper cuts and glue
.
a blind man with a single touch
can see what he can feel
you don't check out the counterfeit
to know the one that's real
.
examine everything you see
don't leave a thing to chance
and you may find a lot of flaws
in friendships and romance
.
be careful what you're giving up
to those who only take
you must check out the genuine
to know the one that's fake
