I was standing at the checkout by a rack of magazines
Cover story told about another heartbroke beauty queen
How she was gettin' over just one more sad affair
And as I waited for my change, you know it hit me then and there

That ordinary people have extraordinary love
A million little miracles far beneath the stars above
The greatest gift that I could ever wish for you and me
Is a life as ordinary as can be

Then I heard some famous people had an anniversary
Five long years together; it was Hollywood history
Now my grandma and grandpa never made no printed page
But they took the love of fifty-seven years right to the grave

'Cause ordinary people have extraordinary love
A million little miracles far beneath the stars above
The greatest gift that I could ever wish for you and me
Is a life as ordinary as can be

Now, we all like to watch, and by the time the movie ends
Who of us hasn't wished to be a little more like them?
But I bet every time two stars are breaking up
That they wish somehow, someway they were a little more like us

'Cause ordinary people have extraordinary love
A million little miracles far beneath the stars above
The greatest gift that I could ever wish for you and me
Is a life as ordinary as can be

Oh, the greatest gift that I could ever wish for you and me
Is a life as ordinary as can be
