Intro: CC chord Csus4Csus4 chord CC chord

CC chord
She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge

She studies sculpture at St. Martins College
             GG chord
That's where I caught her eye
CC chord
She told me that her dad was loaded

I said "In that case I'll have a rum and coca-cola"
            GG chord
She said "fine" and in a thirty seconds time she said


FF chord
"I want to live like common people
                                      CC chord
I want to do whatever common people do

I want to sleep with common people
                                        GG chord
I want to sleep with common people like you"
                                                         CC chord
Well what else could I do', I said "I'll see what I can do"


CC chord
I took her to a supermarket
                                          GG chord
I don't know why but I had to start it somewhere - so it started there
CC chord
I said "Pretend you've got no money"

She just laughed and said "Oh, you're so funny"
         GG chord
I said "Yeah, well I can't see someone else smiling in here


            FF chord
Are you sure you want to live like common people
                                           CC chord
You want to see whatever common people see

You want to sleep with common people
                                           GG chord
You want to sleep with common people like me
                                                        CC chord
But she didn't understand, she just smiled and held my hand


         CC chord
Rent a flat above your shop, cut you hair and get a job
                GG chord
Smoke some fags and play some pool, prentend you never went to school
                CC chord
But still you'll never get it right, 'cos when you're laid in bed at night
             GG chord
watching roaches climb the wall, if you called your dad he could stop it all


FF chord
You'll never live like common people
                                          CC chord
You'll never do whatever common people do

You'll never fail like common people
                                        GG chord
You'll never watch your life slide out of view
                                                               CC chord
And dance and drink and screw because there's nothing else to do

Interlude:
    CC chord  GG chord
    CC chord  GG chord


FF chord
Sing along with the common people,
                                     CC chord
Sing along and it might just get you thru'

Laugh along with the common people
                                             GG chord
Laugh along even though they are laughing at you

And the stupid things that you do
                                CC chord
Because you think that poor is cool


CC chord
Like a dog lying in a corner they will bite you and never warn you
       GG chord
look out, they'll tear you insides out
CC chord
'Cos everybody hates a tourist especially one who thinks that it's all
         GG chord
Such a laugh

and the chip stains and grease will come out in the bath


         FF chord
you will never understand how it feels to live your life
            CC chord
With no meaning or control and with nowhere left to go
            GG chord
You are amazed that they exist and they burn so bright
                            CC chord
Whilst you can only wonder why


         CC chord
Rent a flat above your shop, cut you hair and get a job
                GG chord
Smoke some fags and play some pool, prentend you never went to school
                CC chord
But still you'll never get it right, 'cos when you're laid in bed at night
             GG chord
watching roaches climb the wall, if you called your dad he could stop it all


FF chord
You'll never live like common people
                                          CC chord
You'll never do whatever common people do

You'll never fail like common people
                                        GG chord
You'll never watch your life slide out of view
                                                               CC chord
And dance and drink and screw because there's nothing else to do


I want to live with common people like you

I want to live with common people like you
