[Csus4]  
[C] 

Verse 

[C] She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge 

She studies sculpture at St. Martins College 

That?s where  
[G] 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" 

She said  
[G] "fine" and in a thirty seconds time she said 

Chorus 

[F] "I want to live like common people 

I want to do whatever common people  
[C] do 

I want to sleep with common people 

I want to sleep with common people like  
[G] you" 

Well what else could I do?, I said "I'll see what I can  
[C] do" 

Verse 

[C] I took her to a supermarket 

I don't know why but I had to start it  
[G] somewhere - so it started there 

[C] I said "Pretend you've got no money" 

She just laughed and said "Oh, you're so funny" 

I said  
[G] "Yeah, well I can't see someone else smiling in here 

Chorus 

(Are you sure?)  
[F] You want to live like common people 

You want to see whatever common people  
[C] see 

You want to sleep with common people 

You want to sleep with common people like  
[G] me 

But she didn't understand, she just smiled and held my  
[C] hand 

Bridge 

Rent a flat above your shop, cut you hair and get a job 

Smoke some  
[G] fags and play some pool, prentend you never went to school 

But still you'll  
[C] never get it right, 'cos when you're laid in bed at night 

watching  
[G] roaches climb the wall, if you called your dad he could stop it all 

Chorus 

[F] You'll never live like common people 

You'll never do whatever common people  
[C] do 

You'll never fail like common people 

You'll never watch your life slide out of  
[G] view 

And dance and drink and screw because there's nothing else to  
[C] do 

Instrumental as verse with stab chords on the last G 

[C]  
[G]  
[C]  
[G]

Chorus 

[F] Sing along with the common people, 

Sing along and it might just get you  
[C] thru' 

Laugh along with the common people 

Laugh along even though they are laughing at  
[G] you 

And the stupid things that you do 

Because you think that poor is  
[C] cool 

Verse 

[C] Like a dog lying in a corner, they will bite you and never warn you 

look  
[G] out, they'll tear you insides out 

[C] 'Cos everybody hates a tourist especially one who thinks that it's all 

Such a  
[G] laugh and the chip stains and grease will come out in the bath 

you will  
[F] never understand how it feels to live your life 

With no  
[C] meaning or control and with nowhere left to go 

You are  
[G] amazed that they exist and they burn so bright 

Whilst you can only  
[C] wonder why 

Bridge 

Rent a flat above your shop, cut you hair and get a job 

Smoke some  
[G] fags and play some pool, prentend you never went to school 

But still you'll  
[C] never get it right, 'cos when you're laid in bed at night 

watching  
[G]* roaches climb the wall, if you called your dad he could stop it all 

Chorus 

[F] You'll never live like common people 

You'll never do whatever common people  
[C] do 

You'll never fail like common people 

You'll never watch your life slide out of  
[G] view 

And dance and drink and screw because there's nothing else to  
[C] do 

I want to live with common people like you x 7 

Ooh la la la x 4 

Like you.
