Love of the Common People
Paul Young Lyrics


Living on free food tickets
Water in the milk
From a hole in the roof
Where the rain came through
What can you do, hmmm?

Tears from your little sister
Crying because she doesn't have
A dress without a patch
For the party to go
But you know she'll get by

'Cause she's living in
The love of the common people
Smiles from the heart
Of a family man

Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can
And she can

It's a good thing
You don't have bus fare
It would fall through the hole
In your pocket and you'd lose it
In the snow on the ground
You got to walk into town
To find a job

Tryin' to keep your hands warm
When the hole in your shoe
Let the snow come through
And chill you to the bone
Somehow you'd better go home
Where it's warm

Where you can live in
The love of the common people
Smile from the heart
Of a family man

Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
And she can

Living on a dream ain't easy
But the closer the knit
The tighter the fit
And the chills stay away
'Cause we take 'em in stride
For family pride

You know that faith
Is your foundation
With a whole lot of love
And a warm conversation
But don't forget to pray
It's makin' it strong
Where you belong

And we're living in
The love of the common people
Smiles from the heart
Of a family man

Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can
And she can

Yes, we're living in
The love of the common people
Smile's from the heart
Of a family man

Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart
Of a family man

Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can

Living in the love of the common people
Smile's really hard
On a family man

Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can
And she can

Lyrics

Living on free food tickets
Water in the milk from a hole in the roof
Where the rain came through
What can you do?
Tears from your little sister crying
Because she doesn't have a dress without a patch for the party to go

Oh
But you know she'll get by.
'Cause she's living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man.
Daddy's gonna buy her a dream to cling to
And mama's gonna love her just as much as she can and she can.

It's a good thing you don't have busfare

It would fall through the whole in your pocket
And you'd lose it in the snow on the ground.
You gotta walk into town to find a job.
'Trying to keep your hands warm when the hole in your shoe
Let's the snow come through and it chills you to the bone

So boy
You better go home where it's warm.
Where you can live in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man.
Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
And mama's gonna love you just as much as she can and she can.
Living on a dream ain't easy
But the closer the knit the tighter the fit
And the chills stay away
You have to take 'em in stride
For family pride.
You know that faith is your foundation
And with a whole lot of love and warm conversation
But don't forget to pray it's making it strong where you belong.
And we're living on the love of the common people
Yes
We're living of the love of the common people
