Pulp

[Intro]

C Csus4 C

[Verse]

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

[Chorus]

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"

[Verse]

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

[Chorus]

                    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

[Bridge]

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

                        G
Smoke some fags and play some pool, pretend 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

[Chorus]

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

[Instrumental]

C  G

C  G

[Chorus]

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

[Verse]

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

         G
look out, they'll tear your 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

[Bridge]

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

                        G
Smoke some fags and play some pool, pretend 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

[Chorus]

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

I want to live with common people like you

I want to live with common people like you
