Love Of The Common People
Living on free food tickets
Water in the milk from the hole in roof
Where the rain came trough
Oh, what can you do, mmm-mmm

Tears from your little sister
Crying 'cause she doesn't have a dress without a patch
For the party to go
All that you know, she'll get by, 'cause she's

Living in love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy's gonna find her a dream to cling to
Momma's gonna love her just as much as she can, she can

It's a good thing you don't have a bus fare
It would fall through the hole in your pocket
And you'd lose it in the snow on the ground
Walking to town, find a job

Trying to keep your hands warm
But the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through
And it chills you to the bone
Oh, you better go home where it's warm, where you can

Live in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy's gonna find you a dream to cling to
Momma's gonna love you just as much as she can, she can

Living on dreams ain't easy
But the closer the knit the tighter the fit
And the chills stay away
You take them in stride with family pride

You know that faith is your foundation
And trough the whole lot of love and a warm conversation
And of course this prayer
It's making you strong, where you belong, where you can

Live in the love of the common people
Be the pride in the heart of a family man
Daddy's gonna find you a dream to cling to
Momma's gonna love you just as much as she can, she can

Live in the love of the common people
Be the pride in the heart of a family man
Daddy's gonna find you a dream to cling to
Mamma's gonna love you just as much as she can, she can
