Love Of The Common People Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Livin' on free food tickets
Water in the milk from the hole in the roof
Where the rain came through
What can you do?

Tears from little sister cryin'
'Cause she doesn't have a dress without a patch
For the party to go, oh
But she knows she'll get by

'Cause she is livin' in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy's gonna buy her a dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love her just as much as she can and 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 on the snow on the ground
A walking to town to find a job

Tryin' to keep your hands warm
But the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through
It chills to the bone, boy
You'd better go home where it's warm

And you can live 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 you can and you can

Livin' on dreams ain't easy
But the closer the knit the tighter the fit
And the chills stay away
You take 'em in stride, family pride

You know that faith is your foundation
And a whole lot of love
And a warm conversation and plenty of prayer
Making you strong where you belong

And you can live in the love of the common people
Oh, yes, we live in the love of the common people
Oh, yeah, we live in the love of the common people
