Hi guys - heres the chords for Common People by Pulp :-

    COMMON PEOPLE by PULP from the album 'Different Class'
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The chords to this song are straightforward - chord change every two bars
and there's only three chords in it. The keyboards on the recording play
the melody line throughout (at least when you can hear it in the quiet
bits) and you can mimic this on the guitar by hammering a sus4 on each of the
chords. The biggest problem in playing this song is that it varies in
speed as it meanders through Jarvis' moods. Lyrics are from the New Pulp Home
Page (http://ns.ph.liv.ac.uk:80/~mbs/plp/pulp_home/) - thanks to Martin Smith.

intro: C Csus4 C

C
She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge

She studies sculpture at St. Martins College
                     G
That?s where I caught her eye
C
She told me that her dad was loaded

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

F
"I want to live like common people
                                                              C
I want to do whatever common people do

I want to sleep with common people
                                                                  G
I want to sleep with common people like you"
                                                                                             C
Well what else could I do?, I said "I?ll see what I can do"

C
I took her to a supermarket
                                                                    G
I don?t know why but I had to start it somewhere - so it started there
C
I said "Pretend you?ve got no money"

She just laughed and said "Oh, you?re so funny"
             G
I said "Yeah, well I can?t see someone else smiling in here

                    F
Are you sure you want to live like common people
                                                                       C
You want to see whatever common people see

You want to sleep with common people
                                                                       G
You want to sleep with common people like me
                                                                                            C
But she didn?t understand, she just smiled and held my hand

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

F
You?ll never live like common people
                                                                    C
You?ll never do whatever common people do

You?ll never fail like common people
                                                                G
You?ll never watch your life slide out of view
                                                                                                       C
And dance and drink and screw because there?s nothing else to do

C  G
C  G

F
Sing along with the common people,
                                                           C
Sing along and it might just get you thru?

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

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

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

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

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

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

F
You?ll never live like common people
                                                                    C
You?ll never do whatever common people do

You?ll never fail like common people
                                                                G
You?ll never watch your life slide out of view
                                                                                                       C
And dance and drink and screw because there?s nothing else to do
