    Lyrics

    (Ronnie Wilkins - John Hurley)

    Living on free food, tickets
    Water in the milk from the hole in the roof
    Where the rain comes through
    What can you do? hmm.

    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.

    Because she's living in the love of the common people
    Smiles from the heart of the family man
    Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
    Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can.

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

    You're trying to keep your hands warm
    But the hole in your shoe let the snow come through
    And it chills you to the bone, boy
    You'd better go home where it's warm.

    Where you can live on the love of the common people
    Smiles from the heart of the family man
    Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
    Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can.

    Living on dreams ain't easy
    But the closer the fit the tighter the knit
    And the chills stay away
    You take 'em in stride, family pride.

    You know that faith is your foundation
    But with a whole lotta love
    And a warm conversation, of course there's a prayer
    Making you strong where you belong.

    Where you can live on the love of the common people
    Smiles from the heart of the family man
    Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
    Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can.

    Live on the love of the common people
    Smiles from the heart of the family man
    Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
    Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can...
