Stiff Little Fingers – Love Of The Common People lyrics

Living on Government hand-outs

Water in the milk from a hole in the roof

Where the rain comes through

What can you do? You can't move

You got tears from your little sister
Crying cos she don't have a dress without a patch in

For the party to go

Aw, but you know she'll get by cos she's....


Smiles through the heart of the family man
Living in the love of the common people

Poppa's gonna buy you a dream to cling to

Momma's gonna love you just as much as she can

And she can

It's a good think you don't have bus fares

They would fall through a hold in you pocket and you'd lose 'em
In the snow on the ground

You gotta walk into town to get a job

Trying to keep yourself warm
But the hole in your shoe lets the snow comes through

And chills you to the bone
So you better go home where it's warm and you can


Living on dreams ain't easy
