Living on free food tickets
Theres water in the milk from the hole in the roof
Where the rain came in
But what can you do

Well you got tears from your little sister
Crying cause she doesnt have a dress without a patch
For the party to go
Oh but you know that shes gonna get by

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddys gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mamas gonna love you just as much as she can
As she can
Oh yeah

And its a good thing you dont have bus fare
It would fall through the whole in your pocket
And youd lose it in the snow on the ground
You better walk to town and find a job

Oh and you try to keep your hands warm
The hole in your shoe lets the snow come through
And it chills you to the bone
Youd better go home where its warm

You can live in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddys gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mamas gonna love you just as much as she can
As she can
Oh yeah

Living on a dream aint easy no
But the closer the knit the tighter the fit
And the chills stay away
We like to keep them in stride for family pride

Faith is your foundation
Got a whole lot of love and a long conversation
But dont forget to pray oh no
Its keeping us strong where we belong

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddys gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mamas gonna love you just as much as she can

Living in the love of the common people
(you know that faith is your foundation)
Smiles from the heart of the family man
(whole lot of love and a long conversation)
Daddys gonna buy you a dream to cling to
(dont forget to pray its keeping us strong)
Mamas gonna love you just as much as she can
(where we belong)

Living in the love of the common people
(oh living on a dream aint easy)
Smiles from the heart of the family man
(but the closer the knit the tighter the fit)
Daddys gonna buy you a dream to cling to
(we like to keep them in stride)
Mamas gonna love you just as much as she can
(for family pride)
As she can
