Pulp's classic. This has also been covered fantastically well by William Shatner She came from Greece, she had a thirst for knowledge<br> She studied sculpture at Saint Martin's College<br> That's where I caught her eye.<br> She told me that her Dad was loaded<br> I said “In that case I'll have a rum and coca-cola”<br> She said “fine”<br> And in thirty seconds time she said,<br> “I want to live like common people<br> I want to do whatever common people do,<br> I want to sleep with common people<br> I want to sleep with common people like you”<br> Well what else could I do?<br> I said “I'll see what I can do”<br> I took her to a supermarket<br> I don't know why<br> But I had to start it somewhere<br> So it started there.<br> I said “Pretend you've got no money”<br> But she just laughed<br> And said “oh you're so funny”.<br> I said “yeah?<br> Well I can't see anyone else smiling in here”.<br> Are you sure you want to live like common people<br> You want to see whatever common people see<br> You want to sleep with common people,<br> You want to sleep with common people like me.<br> But she didn't understand,<br> She just smiled and held my hand.<br> Rent a flat above a shop,<br> Cut your hair and get a job.<br> Smoke some fags and play some pool,<br> Pretend you never went to school.<br> But still you'll never get it right<br> 'cos when you're laid in bed at night<br> Watching roaches climb the wall<br> If you called your Dad he could stop it all.<br> You'll never live like common people<br> You'll never do whatever common people do<br> You'll never fail like common people<br> You'll never watch your life slide out of view,<br> And dance and drink and screw<br> Because there's nothing else to do.<br> <br> Sing along with the common people,<br> Sing along and it might just get you thru'<br> Laugh along with the common people<br> Laugh along even though they're laughing at you<br> And the stupid things that you do.<br> Because you think that poor is cool.<br> Like a dog lying in a corner,<br> They will bite you and never warn you<br> Look out, they'll tear your insides out<br> 'cos everybody hates a tourist<br> Especially one who thinks<br> It's all such a laugh<br> Yeah!<br> And the chip stains' grease<br> Will come out in the bath<br> You will never understand<br> How it feels to live your life<br> With no meaning or control<br> And with nowhere left to go<br> You are amazed that they exist<br> And they burn so bright<br> Whilst you can only wonder why<br> Rent a flat above a shop<br> Cut your hair and get a job<br> Smoke some fags and play some pool<br> Pretend you never went to school<br> But still you'll never get it right<br> 'cause when you're laid in bed at night<br> Watching roaches climb the wall<br> If you called your dad he could stop it all<br> Yeah! You'll never live like common people<br> You'll never do whatever common people do<br> You'll never fail like common people<br> You'll never watch your life slide out of view<br> And then dance and drink and screw<br> Because there's nothing else to do<br> I want to live with common people like you…..
