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.
Because 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 fo cling to
And mama's gonna love her just as much as she can and she can.
It's a good thing you donY 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.
'Ikying 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 . . .
