(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...
