Living on free food tickets
Watering the milk from the hole in the roof
Where the rain came through
What can we do?

Tears from your baby sister crying
'Cause she doesn't have a dress
Without a patch for the party to go
Ah, but you know she'll get by

Because she's living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy's goin' to buy you a dream to cling to
Mommy's gonna love you just as much as she can
And 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
Walkin' to town to find a job

Tryin' to keep your hands warm
But the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through
And it chills to the bone
Boy, you better go home where it's warm

And you can live in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of a family man
Daddy's goin' to buy you a dream to cling to
Mummy's goin' to love you just as much as she can
And she can

Livin' 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 faith is your foundation
With a whole lot of love and a warm conversation
And many a prayer
Making you strong, where you belong

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

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