Adapted from the book The Velveteen Rabbit. The Velveteen Rabbit asks the Skin Horse how toys become 'real'. The Skin Horse replies, "Real isn't how you are made, it's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become REAL. For vocal solo, duet or unison choir. Ages 7 and up.

What Is Real? Words adapted by Glyn Lehmann from The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams
Velveteen Rabbit What is real? What is real? And how does it feel? Does it happen all at once? Does it happen all at once, or bit by bit? What is real? What is real?
Skin Horse Real is when somebody cares And you feel alive for the very first time It won’t happen at once You will slowly become You will see yourself through their eyes See yourself through their eyes
Velveteen Rabbit What is real? What is real? And how does it feel? Does it hurt a little bit? Does it hurt a little bit to make that change? To be real To be real
Skin Horse Real is when somebody cares And you feel alive for the very first time Sometimes real can hurt But you really won’t mind If that’s what it takes to be real What it takes to be real
It’s like magic when you are loved Though you are worn, your seams are torn There’s a glow inside That is real
