[Intro]
C


[Verse]
C
She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge

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

I said:In that case I’ll have a rum and coca-cola
         G
She said fine, and in a thirty seconds time she said


[Chorus]
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

Well what else could I do?,
                            C
I said "I’ll see what I can do


[Verse]
C
I took her to a supermarket
                                           G
I don’t know why but I had to start it somewhere

so it started there
C
I said "Pretend you’ve got no money"

She just laughed and said "Oh, you’re so funny"
        G
I said Yeah, well I can’t see someone else smiling in here


[Chorus]
            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 didn’t understand, she just smiled and held my hand


[Bridge]
       C
Rent a flat above your 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 you’ll never get it right,

’cos when you’re laid in bed at night
         G
watching roaches climb the wall,

if you called your dad he could stop it all


[Chorus]
F
You’ll never live like common people
                                       C
You’ll never do whatever common people do

You’ll never fail like common people
                                          G
You’ll never watch your life slide out of view

And dance and drink and screw
                                C
because there’s nothing else to do


[Interlude]

[Chorus]
F
Sing along with the common people,
                                     C
Sing along and it might just get you thru

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

I want to live with common people like you
