"Strong In the Real Way" is a song written by Rebecca Sugar. It was first sung by Pearl and later by Steven to help him coach in the episode, "Coach Steven". Pearl and Steven look back at each other constantly throughout the song, as if to prove their points.

This song is available at Aivi & Surasshu's SoundCloud stream.

Lyrics:

Annoyed  Pearl, Groans: Steven...

Gentle piano music plays,

Pearl, singing:

Why do you have to look up to her?
Aside from in a literal sense.
Dont'cha know that a power that big
Comes with a bigger expense?
And can't you see that she's out of control
And overzealous?
I'm telling you for your own good,
And not because I'm- (the word jealous is omitted)
I could show you how to be strong...
In the real way.
And I know that we can be strong
In the real way.
And I want to inspire you
I want to be your rock
And when I talk
It lights a fire in you

Steven turns up his stereo, making the music louder and pop-styled.

Steven, yelling: Who's ready to get buff? I don't want to see your gut, I want to see your guts!

I can show you how to be strong...
In the real way
And I know that we can be strong
In the real way (Pearl joins in)
And I want to inspire you
I want to be your rock
And when I talk
It lights a fire in you
I want to inspire you
I want to be your rock
And when I talk
It lights a fire in you

(Greg, Lars, and Sadie do a final set of exercises and groan)
