Common Man

In the style of

John Conlee

Lyrics

as the maid
poured wine
and we prepared
to dine
i knew i was feelin'
out of place

at a table as large
as a river barge
and i love you written
all on your face
i appreciate
your hospitality
but i wish
that we would go

let me drive us
to mcdonalds
and i'll talk to you
concerning something
you should
really know

i'm just a common man
drive a common van
my dog ain't got
a pedigree

if i have my say
gonna stay that way
those highbrowed
people lose
their sanity
and a common man
is what i'll be

i'll take a chevrolet
just any day
so give your daddy
back his
mercedes benz

and there's some
common people
that i hang out with
they're my
good time buddies
they're my friends

and i'd rather
chugalug a mug
of budweiser beer
than sip a
crystal glass of wine

so won't you
make up your mind
to believe in me
and leave this
high livin'
world behind

i'm just a common man
drive a common van
my dog ain't got
a pedigree

if i have my say
gonna stay that way
those highbrowed
people lose
their sanity
and a common man
is what i'll be

yes i'm happy
just bein' free
and i'm happy
just bein' me
and i hope that
you will see

i'm just a common man
drive a common van
my dog ain't got
a pedigree

if i have my say
gonna stay that way
those highbrowed
people lose
their sanity
and a common man
is what i'll be

i'm just a common man
drive a common van
my dog ain't got
a pedigree

and if i have my say
gonna stay that way
those highbrowed
people lose
their sanity
and a common man
is what i'll be
