  • If you had the real thing how would you tell
    Liars can say it all just as well
    Every single word you've heard in vain
    Baubles of gold, stars in your hair
    Reflections that told that they were not there
    And the diamonds on your cheeks have turned to flames

    [Chorus]
    And up in the air they would write your name there
    But love would fall to pieces in the rain
    Who would know better than you
    A hundred love letters and none of them true

    Christina, Christina

    It's a wondrous world of ridiculous things
    With nothing so rare as the love that it brings
    In the silence of a smile that understands
    A piece of the action, pieces of gold
    Everyone's paid well and does what they're told
    For the simple daughter of a simple man

    [Chorus]

    Christina, Christina
    Christina, Christina
