my lyricsbox
Living on Government hand-outs
Water in the milk from a hole in the roof
Where the rain comes through
What can you do? You can't move

You got tears from your little sister
Crying 'cause she don't have a dress
Without a patch in for the party to go
Aw, but you know she'll get by 'cause she's

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles through the heart of the family man
Poppa's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Momma's gonna love you just
As much as she can and she can

It's a good think you don't have bus fares
They would fall through a hold in you pocket
And you'd lose 'em in the snow on the ground
You gotta walk into town to get a job

Trying to keep yourself warm
But the hole in your shoe lets the snow comes through
And chills you to the bone
So you better go home where it's warm and you can

Living in the love of the common people
Smiles through the heart of the family man
Poppa's gonna buy you a dream to cling to
Momma's gonna love you just
As much as she can and she can

Living on dreams ain't easy
This song is from the album "Now Then...", "Story So Far", "Anthology", "Inspired", "Radio One Sessions" and "Live Inspiration".
