~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

intro: C 
 
C
She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge

She studies sculpture at St. Martins College
             G
ThatŽs where I caught her eye
C
She told me that her dad was loaded

I said "In that case IŽll have a rum and coca-cola"
         G
She said "fine" and in a thirty seconds time she said

F
"I want to live like common people
                                    C
I want to do whatever common people do

I want to sleep with common people
                                        G
I want to sleep with common people like you"
                                                        C
Well what else could I do?, I said "IŽll see what I can do"

C
I took her to a supermarket
                                           G
I donŽt know why but I had to start it somewhere - so it started there
C
I said "Pretend youŽve got no money"

She just laughed and said "Oh, youŽre so funny"
       G
I said "Yeah, well I canŽt see someone else smiling in here

                 F
Are you sure you want to live like common people
                                       C
You want to see whatever common people see

You want to sleep with common people
                                          G
You want to sleep with common people like me
                                                      C
But she didnŽt understand, she just smiled and held my hand

       C
Rent a flat above a shop, cut you hair and get a job
           G
Smoke some fags and play some pool, prentend you never went to school
                 C
But still youŽll never get it right, Žcos when youŽre laid in bed at night
         G
watching roaches climb the wall, if you called your dad he could stop it all

F
YouŽll never live like common people
                                       C
YouŽll never do whatever common people do

YouŽll never fail like common people
                                          G
YouŽll never watch your life slide out of view
                                                              C
And dance and drink and screw because thereŽs nothing else to do

C  G
C  G

F
Sing along with the common people,
                                     C
Sing along and it might just get you thruŽ

Laugh along with the common people
                                             G
Laugh along even though they are laughing at you

And the stupid things that you do
                               C
Because you think that poor is cool

C
Like a dog lying in a corner they will bite you and never warn you
     G
look out, theyŽll tear you insides out
C
ŽCos everybody hates a tourist especially one who thinks that itŽs all
       G
Such a laugh
                       
and the chip stains and grease will come out in the bath

         F
you will never understand how it feels to live your life
        C
With no meaning or control and with nowhere left to go
         G
You are amazed that they exist and they burn so bright
                           C
Whilst you can only wonder why

       C
Rent a flat above your shop, cut you hair and get a job
           G
Smoke some fags and play some pool, pretend you never went to school
                 C
But still youŽll never get it right, Žcos when youŽre laid in bed at night
         G
watching roaches climb the wall, if you called your dad he could stop it all

F
YouŽll never live like common people
                                       C
YouŽll never do whatever common people do

YouŽll never fail like common people
                                          G
YouŽll never watch your life slide out of view
                                                              C
And dance and drink and screw because thereŽs nothing else to do
