As the maid poured wine and we prepared to dine
I know I was feeling out of place
At table as large big as a river barge
And I love you written all on your face
I appreciate your hospitality but I wish that we would go
Let me drive us to Mcdonalds and I'll talk to you
Concerning something you should really know

I'm just a common man drive a common van
My dog aint got a no pedigree
If I have my say, gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be

I'll take a Chevrolet just any day
So give your daddy back his Mercedes Benz
And there's some common people that I hang out with
They're my good time buddies they're my friends
And I'd rather chug-a-lug a mug of Budweiser beer
Then sip a crystal glass of wine
So wont you make your mind up to believe in me
And leave this high living world behind?

I'm just a common man drive a common van
My dog aint got a no pedigree
If I have my say, gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be

Yes I'm happy just being free
And I'm happy just being me
And I hope that you will see

I'm just a common man drive a common van
My dog aint got a no pedigree
If I have my say, gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be

I'm just a common man drive a common van
My dog aint got a no pedigree
If I have my say, gonna stay that way
Cause high-browed people lose their sanity
And a common man is what I'll be
