Elton John - "Love Of The Common People" lyrics

Living on free food tickets Water in the milk from the hole in the roof Where the rain came through What can we do

Tears from your little sister Crying 'cause she doesn't have a dress without a patch for the party to go Oh but you know she'll get by

'Cause 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 to cling to Momma's gonna love her just as much as she can And she can

It's a good thing you don't have bus fare It would fall through the hole in your pocket And you'll lose it in the snow on the ground Out walking your dog to 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 You better go home where it's warm

You can live in the love of the common people Smiles from the heart of the family man Daddy's gonna buy her a dream to cling to Momma's gonna love her just as much as she can And she can

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

You know that faith in your foundation And with a whole lot of love and a warm conversation And a _______ prayer making you strong Where you belong

Where you can live in the love of the common people Smiles from the heart of the family man Daddy's gonna buy her a dream to cling to Momma's gonna love her just as much as she can And she can
