"Love of the Common People" as written by John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins....
Living on free food tickets
Water in the milk from the hole in the roof
Where the rain came through
What can you do? hm hm

Tears from 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

She is living 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
Mamma's gonna love her just as much as she can,as she can

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

Trying to keep your hands warm
But the hole in your shoe let the snow come through
And the chills 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 buy you a dream to cling to
Mamma's gonna love her just as much as she can,as 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,family pride

You know that faith is your foundation
And with whole lotta love and a warm conversation
And plenty of prayer
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 buy you a dream to cling to
Mamma's gonna love her just as much as she can,as she can
