Status Quo - Reality Cheque Lyrics




You're stalling on this you got nothing on me
now we only got history
I'm playing my cards with an unmarked deck
cashing in my chips with a reality cheque
cashing in my chips with a reality cheque

Could have had everything but you're moving on
now you will know a lot of nothing at all
before I turn into a nervous wreck
I'm paying my bill with a reality cheque
I'm paying my bill with a reality cheque
With a fat reality cheque
With a fat reality cheque

There's nothing worse than a woman scorned
I'm telling you baby, you're ill informed
lucky for you I'm not feeling mad
believe I specialise in being bad

You're stalling on this you got nothing on me
now we only got history
I'm playing my cards with an unmarked deck
cashing in my chips with a reality cheque
cashing in my chips with a reality cheque

I sold your clothes and I cancelled your cards
I changed the lock on the house and the car
And didn't I tell you, the diamonds are fake
I must admit, that's the icing on the cake

It wasn't me that got you into this mess
I wanted to try and make it all a success
But now you're hanging on around my neck
Shaking you off with a reality cheque
Shaking you off with a reality cheque
With a fat reality cheque
With a fat reality cheque
With a fat reality cheque

Paying my bill with a reality cheque
Paying my bill with a reality cheque
Paying my bill with a reality cheque

Status Quo Reality Cheque Comments
  1. Murray Gilchrist

    I am playing this vindictively against my wife of 20 years who stole £200000 from me last month. Yes, two hundred thousand pounds.

  2. Matt Seymour

    Great song and love the rawness! Anyone know what cymbals the drummer uses?

  3. James Corrigan

    The other side of his life is in this song.

  4. Stefan Pontzeele

    In my opninion the older songs are way better... This is a Belavista man song but less catchy. Twenty wild horses tracks they will not make again I'm afraid. Well I would still go to there gigs if they came to belgium ;p

  5. Kaiser Brötchen

    yyeeeaaaaahhhh you know what youre talking about

    RICK IS THE KING OF RYTHM!!

  6. progmeup

    You crazy?? "Two Way Traffic", "Movin' On", "Frozen Hero" and the bluesy "It's All About You" are great Rossi tunes (agreed, the best tunes are by Parfitt, but Rossi writes more). And Andy is a weak singer, but his blues piano and organ are great additions to the SQ sound! It just doesn't work live...

  7. Rallymanuk

    classic QUO, they just get better and better.

  8. CaptainQuo

    Parfitt isn't the most consistent Quo songwriter, but definitely the best.

    Alan Strom

    LANCASTER/PARFITT SONGS ARE GREAT.
    ROSSI/YOUNG WROTE A FEW BIG HIT SONGS. LOL!!
    ROSSI/PARFITT WROTE A FEW CLASSIC QUO TUNES.

  9. Ricky Mills

    i love it how he yells DECK

  10. Phil Crouch

    Theres only 4 or 5 good tracks on this, and they are all Parfitt tunes. I wish someone would pull the plug on bown's keyboard it ruins the Quo sound. The reality is im a 70's Quo fan sad i know but there you have it, I'd just wish Parfitt would bring a cd out of just rocking/blues tunes that would be great.

  11. MrTomo1970 fgfd

    the last quo album i bought was in the army now, until now!!! quid pro quo is a quality album!!!

    Alan Strom

    YOU'RE MISSING OUT ON SOME GOOD ALBUMS MATE!!!!!!!!!
    I WON'T LIST THEM, YOU DO THE RESEARCH FOR YOURSELF.

  12. Rocker Rollin'

    FANTASTIC ALBUM

  13. status quo2
