[Verse]
A
She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge
                                                              E
She studied sculpture at Saint Martin's College, that's where I caught her eye. 
A
She told me that her Dad was loaded

I said in that case I'll have a rum and coca-cola. 
           E                                       D
She said fine and in thirty seconds time she said, I want to live like common people
                                       A
I want to do whatever common people do, I want to sleep with common people

[Chorus]
                                         E
I want to sleep with common people like you. 

Well what else could I do - I said I'll see what I can do. 

[Verse]
A
I took her to a supermarket
                                                E
I don't know why but I had to start it somewhere, it started there. 
A
I said pretend you've got no money, she just laughed and said oh you're so funny. 
          E
I said yeah? Well I can't see anyone else smiling in here. 

[Chorus]
              D
Are you sure you want to live like common people

You want to see whatever common people see
A
You want to sleep with common people, 

you want to sleep with common people like me. 
E
But she didn't understand, she just smiled and held my hand. 

[Bridge]
A
Rent a flat above a shop, cut your hair and get a job. 
            E
Smoke some fags and play some pool, pretend you never went to school. 
A
still you'll never get it right 
                                                 E
'cos when you're laid in bed at night watching roaches climb the wall 

If you call your Dad he could stop it all. 

[Chorus]
D
You'll never live like common people

You'll never do what common people do
A
You'll never fail like common people
                                             E
You'll never watch your life slide out of view, and dance and drink and screw 

Because there's nothing else to do. 
D
Sing along with the common people, sing along and it might just get you thru'
A
Laugh along with the common people
                                             E
Laugh along even though they're laughing at you and the stupid things that you do. 

Because you think that poor is cool. 
D
I want to live with common people like you,
I want to live with common people like you,
I want to live with common people like you,
I want to live with common people like youuu

La La La

Oh youuu

La La La

Oh youu
