Song Meaning
Verse 1
Living on free food tickets
Water in the milk
From a hole in the roof
Where the rain came through
What can you do, hmmm?
Verse 2
Tears from your little sister
Crying because she doesn't have
A dress without a patch
For the party to go
But you know she'll get by
Verse 3
'Cause she's living in
The love of the common people
Smiles from the heart
Of a family man
Verse 4
Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can
And she can
Verse 5
It's a good thing
You don't have bus fare
It would fall through the hole
In your pocket and you'd lose it
In the snow on the ground
You got to walk into town
To find a job
Verse 6
Tryin' to keep your hands warm
When the hole in your shoe
Let the snow come through
And chill you to the bone
Somehow you'd better go home
Where it's warm
Verse 7
Where you can live in
The love of the common people
Smile from the heart
Of a family man
Verse 8
Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
And she can
Verse 9
Living on a dream ain't easy
But the closer the knit
The tighter the fit
And the chills stay away
'Cause we take 'em in stride
For family pride
Verse 10
You know that faith
Is your foundation
With a whole lot of love
And a warm conversation
But don't forget to pray
It's makin' it strong
Where you belong
Verse 11
And we're living in
The love of the common people
Smiles from the heart
Of a family man
Verse 12
Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can
And she can
Verse 13
Yes, we're living in
The love of the common people
Smile's from the heart
Of a family man
Verse 14
Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can
Verse 15
Living in the love of the common people
Smiles from the heart
Of a family man
Verse 16
Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can
Verse 17
Living in the love of the common people
Smile's really hard
On a family man
Verse 18
Daddy's gonna buy you
A dream to cling to
Mama's gonna love you
Just as much as she can
And she can
