Paul Young - Love of the common people
Tekst en muziek: John Hurley en Ronnie Wilkins
(1984)







Living on free food tickets
Water in the milk from a hole in the roof
Where the rain came through
What can you do, mmm
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
So cold
And she can



It’s a good thing you don’t have busfare
It’s a good thing, ouch
It would fall through the hole in your pocket
And you’d lose it in the snow on the ground
Ow, ah ah ya
You gotta walk into town to find a job
What’s it now
Tryin’ to keep your hands warm
It’s so cold
When the hole in your shoe let the snow come through
And chill you to the bone
Brrr cha
Somehow you’d better go home where it’s warm



Where you can live in a love of the common people
Smile from the heart of a family man
Ah ah ya
Daddy’s gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mama’s gonna love you just as much as she can
So cold
And she can



Living on a dream ain’t easy
But the closer the knit, the tighter the fit
The closer the knit
And the chills stay away
Ow, ah ah ya
Keep ’em in stride for family pride
You know that faith is your foundation
Ooh now, ooh now, ooh now
With a whole lotta love and a warm conversation
But don’t forget to pray
Forget to pray
Making you strong
Where you belong



And we’re living in the love of the common people
Smile’s really hard on a family man
What’s it now
Daddy’s gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mama’s gonna love you just as much as she can
You’re so cold
And she can



Yes, we’re living in the love of the common people
Smile’s from the heart of a family man
Ah ah ya
Daddy’s gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mama’s gonna love you just as much as she can
You’re so cold



Living in the love of the common people
Smile’s from the heart of a family man
What’s it now
Daddy’s gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mama’s gonna love you just as much as she can
You’re so cold



Living in the love of the common people
Smile’s really hard on a family man
Ah ah ya
Daddy’s gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mama’s gonna love you just as much as she can



And she can
