Box – Ordinary People lyrics

In the you. S. A. And the you. S. S. Are...
We are ordinary people leading ordinary lives
We use lots of simple ways to get simple happiness
We have ordinary problems, and ordinary fears
We all take care of our business
Life goes on, and nothing changes

We don't understand much 'bout those big shot
Politicians
And whose got most of them firecrackers to blow up in
Our faces
I bet my shirt that way back there in the you. S. S. Are.
People think like you and me, but
Life goes on, and nothing changes

We are ordinary people
And our star bears no colour black or white
We are ordinary people
No matter what we stand for all in all
We're all the same
And it don't matter
In the you. S. A. And the you. S. S. Are...

I wonder what the Soviet Rambo looks like in their
Pictures
I'm sure as hell he's just as sweet as ours
There's got to be some Russian Sting who sings about
His people
And how strong is the will to live in peace, but
Life goes on, and nothing changes

And I say:
We are ordinary people
And our star bears no colour black or white
We are ordinary people
No matter what we stand for all in all
We're all the same
And it don't matter

All right, everybody stand!

We are ordinary people
And our star bears no colour black or white
We are ordinary people
No matter where we come from all we are
We are ordinary people
And our star bears no colour black or white
We are ordinary people
No matter what we stand for all in all
We're all the same
And it don't matter
In the you. S. A. And the you. S. S. Are...
