Living in the Land of the Common People                by Paul Young       (Hear it Now)

 

Living on free food tickets,
water in the milk from the hole in the roof,
to let the rain come 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
But you know she’ll get by
 
Cause she’s living
in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy’s gonna buy you
a dream to cling to
Mama’s gonna love you
just as much as she can
And she can
 
It’s a good thing you don’t have busfare

Talented UK performer Paul Young is a real knockabout bloke who wrote a few songs with street cred like "Whereever I lay my Hat(thats my home,Hope in a hopeless world,

It would fall through the hole
In your pocket and you’d lose it
In the snow on the ground
You gotta walk into town to find a job
Trying to keep your hands warm
When the hole in your shoe
Let the snow come through
And chill you to the bone
Somehow you’d better go home
Where it’s warm
 
Cause she’s living
in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy’s gonna buy you
a dream to cling to
Mama’s gonna love you
just as much as she can
And she can
 

 

 


(Where you can live
in a love of the common people)

 

Living on a dream ain’t easy
But the closer the knit the tighter the fit
And the chills stay away
Just to take ‘em in stride for family pride
You know that faith is your foundation
With a whole lotta love
And a warm conversation
But don’t forget to pray
Just making it strong where you belong
Cause she’s living
in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy’s gonna buy you
a dream to cling to
Mama’s gonna love you
just as much as she can
And she can
(We’re living in the love
of the common people)
