Talking Heads – People Like Us lyrics

In 1950 when I was born
Papa couldn't afford to buy us much
He said be proud of what you are
There's something special 'bout people like us

People like us
(who will answer the telephone)
People like us
(growing as big as a house)
People like us
(gonna make it because)

We don't want freedom
We don't want justice
We just want someone to love.
Someone to love.u
I was called upon in the 3rd grade class
I gave my answer and it caused a fuss
I'm not the same as ev'ryone else
And times were hard for people like us

People like us
(who will answer the telephone)
People like us
(growing as big as a house)
People like us
(gonna make it because)

What good is freedom?
God laughs at people like us
I see it coming
Like coming down from above

The clouds roll by and the moon comes up
How long must we live in the heat of the sun
Millions of people are waitin' on love
And this is a song about people like us

People like us
(who answe the telephone)
People like us
(growing big as a house)
People like us
(gonna make it because)
We don't want freedom
We don't want justice
We just want someone to love.

Someone to love.
Someone to love.
Someone to love.
