[Verse 1:] Living on free food ticket Water in the milk From the holes in the roof When the rain came through What can you do? Oooh oooh oooh-ooh Tears from your little sister Crying 'cause She doesn't have a dress Without a patch or a party to go What do you know? She'll get by [Chorus:] For she's living In the love of the common people Smiles from the heart of a family man Daddy's gonna buy you twinkle-twinkle Mommy's gonna love you 'Til as much as she can [Verse 2:] It's a good thing you don't have bus fare It would fall through the holes in your pocket And you'd lose it In the snow on the ground You gotta walk into town to find a job Trying to keep your hands warm But the holes in your shoe And the snow comes through Boy, it chills you to the bone I said, you'd better go home where you'll be warm [Chorus:] And you will live In the love of the common people Smiles from the heart of a family man Daddy's gonna buy you twinkle-twinkle Mommy's gonna love you just 'Til as much as she can [Bridge:] She caaan! She caaan! She caaa-aaaaa-aan! She can! She caaan! She caaa-aaaaa-aan! [Verse 3:] Living on dreams ain't easy The closer the knits, the tighter the fit And the chills stay away, You got to take them in strides, family pride You know that, faith is your foundation, With a whole lot of love And a warm conversation, man don't forget the place I say, you better go home You'll be strong [Chorus:] And you will live In the love of the common people Smiles from the heart of a family man Daddy's gonna buy you twinkle-twinkle Mommy's gonna love you just 'Til as much as she can [Bridge:] She caaan! She caaan! She caaa-aaaaa-aan! She can! She caaan! She caaa-aaaaa-aan!
