(Ronnie Wilkins - John Hurley)

Livin' 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 cryin' cause she doesn't have a dress without a patch
For the party to go oh but you know she'll get by.

She is livin' in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart of the family man
Daddy's gonna buy her 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 through the hole in your pocket
And you'd lose it in the snow on the ground a walking to town to find a job
Trying to keep your hands warm.
But the hole in your shoe let the snow come through
And it chills you to the bone oh you'd better go home where it's warm.

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

Livin' on dreams ain't easy
But the closer the knit the tighter the fit and the chills stay away
Oh, you take 'em in stride a family pride
You know that faith is your salvation
And with a whole lotta love and a warm conversation and plenty of prayer
A makin' you strong where you belong.

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