Lyrics:

 ^ Living on free food tickets, water in the milk from a hole in the roof
Where the rain came through, what can you do
Tears from your little sister, crying 'cause she doesn't have a dress without a patch
For the party to go, but you she'll get by

'Cause she's living in the love of the common people
Smile's from the heart of a 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
It would fall thru' the hole in your pocket and you'd lose it in the snow on the ground.
You got to walk into town to find a job, tryin' to keep your hands warm
When the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through and chills you to the bone
Now you'd better go home where it's warm

Where you can live in a love of the common people, smile from the heart of a 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 a dream ain't easy, but the closer the knit the tighter the fit
And the chills stay away, you take 'em in stride for family pride
You know that faith is in your foundation
And with a whole lot of love and a warm conversation, but don't forget to pray
Making it strong were you belong

And we're living in the love of the common people, smile's from the heart of a 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.

Yes, we're living in the love of the common people
Smile's from the heart of a family man, Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you just as much as she can x3
