it's the only thing....

she came from greece she had a thirst for knowledge
she studied sculpture at St. Martin's college
that's where i
caught her eye
she told me that her dad was loaded
i said in that case give me a rum and coca-cola
she said, "fine"
and in 30 seconds time
she said,
"i want to live like common people
i want to do whatever common people do
i want to sleep with common people
i want to sleep with common people like you"
well what else could i do
i said "i'll see what i can do"
i took her to a supermarket
i don't know why
but i had to start it somewhere
so it started there
i said "pretend you've got no money"
she just laughed and said "oh, you're so funny"
and i said "yeah, well i can't see anyone else smiling in here
"are you sure you want to live like common people
you want to see whatever common people see
you want to sleep with common people
you want to sleep with common people like me?"
but she didn't understand
she just smiled and held my hands
rent a flat above a shop
cut your hair and get a job
smoke some fags and play some pool
pretend you never went to school
but still you'll never get it right
when you're lying in bed at night
watching roaches climb the wall
if you called you dad he could stop it all
you'll never live like common people
you'll never do whatever common people do
you'll never fail like common people
you'll never watch you life slide out of view
and dance, and drink, and screw
because there is nothing else to do
sing along with the common
sing along and it might just get you through
laugh along with the common people
laugh along even thoguht they're laughing at you
and the stupid things that you do
because you think that poor is cool
like a dog lying in a corner
they will bite and never warn you
look out
they'll tear your insides out
cause everybody hates a tourist
especially one who this it's
all such a laugh
yeah and the chip stain's grease will come out in the bath
you will never understand
how it feels to live your life
with no meaning or control
and with nowhere else to go
you are amazed that they exist
and they burn so bright whilst you can only wonder why

and dance, and drink, and screw
because there is nothing eles to do.
