"Love of the Common People" as written by John Hurley and Ronnie Wilkins....
One! Two!

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 your little sister
Crying because she don't have a dress without a patch
For the party to go
But she'll know she'll get by, because she's

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's going to buy you a dream to cling to
Mama's going to love you just as much as she can, as 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 in the snow on the ground
Going to be walking to town to find a job

Trying to keep your hands warm
When the hole in your shoe let the snow come through
And chills you to the bone
And you better go home where it's warm

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's going to buy you a dream to cling to
Mama's going to love you just as much as she can, as she can

Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's going to buy you a dream to cling to
Mama's going to love you just as much as she can, as she can

Living on a dream ain't easy
The closer the knit the tighter the fit
The chills stay away
You take them in stride, the family pride

You know that faith is your foundation
With a whole lot of love and a warm conversation
But don't forget to pray
Making you strong where you belong

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's going to buy you a dream to cling to
Mama's going to love you just as much as she can

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's going to buy you a dream to cling to
Mama's going to love you just as much as she can

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's going to buy you a dream to cling to
Mama's going to love you just as much as she can, as she can

Yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah
Whoa-whoa, whoa-whoa, whoa-whoa
Yeah-yeah-hey, yeah-yeah-hey!
Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo
Hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo, hoo-hoo
