lyrics Common People

She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge
She studied sculpture at Saint Martin's College
That's where I caught her eye
She told me that her dad was loaded
I said, in that case I'll have a rhum and coca-cola
She said fine, and in thirty seconds time she said
I want to live like common people
I want to do whatever common people do
I want to sleep with common people
I want to sleep with common people like you
Well, what else could I do
I said, I'll see what I can do
I took her to a supermarket
I don't know why, but I had to start it somewhere
So it started there
I said, pretend you've got no money
She just laughed, and said oh you're so funny, I said
Yeah, well, I can't see anyone else smiling in here
Are you sure you want to live like common people
You want to see whatever common people see
You want to sleep with common people
You want to sleep with common people like me
But she didn't understand
She just smiled and held my hand
Rent a flat above a shop cut your hair and get a job
Smoke some fags and play some pool
Pretend you never went to school
But still, you'll never get it right
When you're lying in bed at night
Watching roaches climb the wall
If you called your dad he could stop it all yeah
You'll never live like common people
You'll never do whatever common people do
You'll never fail like common people
You'll never watch your life slide out of view
And dance and drink and screw
'Cos there's nothing
Because there's nothing else to do else to do
Sing along with the common people
Sing along, and it might just get you thru
Laugh along
Laugh along, laugh along with the common people even though they're
Laughing at you and the stupid things that you do
'Cos you think that poor is cool
Like a dog lying in a corner
They'll bite you and never warn you look out
They'll tear your insides out 'cos everybody hates a tourist
'Cos everybody hates a tourist
Especially one who thinks it's all such a laugh
Yeah, and the chip stains' grease
Will come out in the bath
You will never understand
You will never understand how it feels to live your life how it feels to live your life
With no meaning or control
With no meaning or control and with nowhere left to go and nowhere left to go
You're amazed that they exist
You're amazed that they exist and they burn so bright and they burn so bright
While you can only
While you can only wonder why wonder why
Rent a flat above a shop
Rent a flat above a shop cut your hair and get a job cut your hair and get a job
Smoke some fags
Smoke some fags and play some pool and play some pool
Pretend you never
Pretend you never went to school went to school
But still, you'll never
But still, you'll never get it right get it right when you're lying
'Cos when you're lying in bed at night in bed at night
Watching roaches climb the wall
If you called your dad he could stop it all, yeah
You'll never live
You'll never do what like common people common people do
You'll never do what common people do
You'll never fail
You'll never fail like common people like common people
You'll never watch your
You'll never watch your life slide out of view life slide out of view
And dance
And dance and drink and screw and drink and screw
'Cos there's nothing else
'Cos there's nothing else to do to do
