JOHN DENVER lyrics - Rhymes And Reasons

The Love Of Common People

Original and similar lyrics
(Hurley/Wilkins) Living on free food tickets. Water in the milk from the hole in the roof where the rain came through, what can we do? Mmm. Tears from your baby sister, crying 'cause she doesn't have a dress Without a patch for the party to go, oh but you know she'll get by, Because she's living in the love of the common people, smiles from the heart of a family man. Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to, Mommy's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can. 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, walking to the town to find a job. Trying to keep your hands warm, but the hole in your shoe lets the snow come through and it chills to the bone. Boy you better go home where it's warm. And you can live in the love of the common people, smiles from the heart of a family man. Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to, Mommy's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can. Living on dreams ain't easy, but the closer the knit, the tighter the fit and the chills stay away, you take them in stride, family pride. You know, faith is your foundation, with a whole lot of love and a warm conversation and many a prayer, making you strong where you belong. Living in the love of the common people, smiles from the heart of a family man. Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to, Mommy's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can. Living in the love of the common people, smiles from the heart of a family man. Daddy's gonna buy you a dream to cling to, Mommy's gonna love you just as much as she can, and she can.

Don't Understand

JOHN BUTLER TRIO "JBT"
Did you ever stop to think about whatcha gonna do With your responsibility? Or did you, Just take this job cause it would Be good for the money And did you Ever stop to think About your duty to mankind Or did you, Think ya take this job do favours For you friends and waste all our time? So tell me man Do you realize what you're doing to this good country? Cause you're selling it all away for your economic Stability And you, Justify everything you do With the people that you say you're gonna employ But the unemployment line is getting bigger every year And you treat us all like toys. We're just expendable to you Along now with this land And there ain't no room left for empathy And this is something I don't understand Don't make no sense to me Justifying everything we do on our economy And there ain't no room No more room left for human decency Justifying everything we do on our economy And the only time you listen to the people Is when you think you won't get their vote Otherwise you really could not give a shit Don't mind rockin all our boats And the greatest living friend is a man who goes by The name of apathy And we let you get away with everything you like so You make all your money But I tell you something right now old man And this is a fair old warning to you That the people are waking up And gonna make you accountable too Just like the nazi trials in Nuremburg Hell not so long ago Gonna make you pay for what you have done Gonna make you responsible Cause I don't understand don't understand don't understand what head space you are in so it must be lies you're speaking and the land that you love he could not give a damn about and the ocean that you love do you think he could give a fuck about? And the family that you love do you think he could give A damn about?

Don't Let Me Down

AMEL LARRIEUX "Ice Cream Everyday"
I watch your lips moving I see the words taking shape But love's like a language I cannot translate I can't afford to be careless And let you in I turn my head for one minute And lose everything Wish I had someone whom I could lean Cause everybody's always counting on me With my hands held real tight Always ready to fight For the few pieces of joy I have now You have turned on a light And I've lost my sight But my heart still remembers the sound Of a dream of a love one day found Of a dream of a love one day found So don't let me down Your past it may be rocky But your present is clear My present situation Is the sum of all my fears I take responsibility for the few things I done right But I got so much on my plate I'm scared to take another bite Wish I had someone on whom I could lean Still I don't want no one's charity With my hands held real tight Always ready to fight For the few pieces of joy I have now You have turned on a light And I've lost my sight But my heart still remembers the sound Of a dream of a love one day found Heartbreak and bullets can try To steal any good from my life Fathers and lovers have lied Rivers have flowed from my eyes Never seen love face to face Just seen it walking away Why would you think I would recognize Something that's never been mine You have turned on a light And I've lost my sight But my heart still remembers the sound Of a dream of a love one day found You're the dream of a love one day found And the freedom from what kept me bound And a promise of staying around My eyes may not work for me now But my heart sure remembers the sound So if you saying it Please say it loud And don't let me down

Living My Dream

KING LIL G "AK47 Boyz"
[Verse 1 - King Lil G:] People say they love The way I do my hustle They love the way I treat my people How I'm stayin' humble This is to my fans I never told you this I never got a chance to tell you But I owe you this I hope I get a chance to meet you We could smoke to this And we could talk about life And where to go from this You going through some drama We got things in common My success is the reflection Of negative comments And negative people Who say I don't deserve it I guess I gotta break it down On how the fuck I earned it I never paid to get on songs With a famous person Recorded songs in my garage Even on my birthday Late nights I had no help No record label I told you I it did by myself Recognition On a independent scale I wish freedom To my homies in jail [Hook - Carolyn Rodriguez:] Smoke the finest of trees I'm flyin' so free And feeling the breeze And finally I'm.. Living my dream This is what I prayed for Living my dream I'm so grateful [Verse 2 - ISuppose:] Yo, I was 19 strugglin Thinkin' bout givin' up Thinkin' life as a shorty Shouldn't be so rough Mama said get a job Daddy said he needed funds for the rent Move forward Haven't looked back since I remember back then Everybody said I was dope Then time pass & I was broke And everybody lost hope Now its back to the block Dealin' coke Chillin' with the hustlas Lost faith in my dreams I knew that I was fucking up Pockets had a hundred bucks My heart had a lot of pain Told the world my story And it hasn't been the same Now I'm travelin' the world Breakin' bread with my team Woke up from a nightmare Now I'm livin' my dream So here's a middle finger For the ones who said I couldn't do it And a toast for my fans worldwide That bump my music Without you I'm useless Always know what's you're worth I don't sign record deals Cause I rather sign a shirt [Hook - Carolyn Rodriguez] [Verse 3 - Self Provoked:] Yo, myspace, myspace When my face was first seen And heard music player Playing my verse I learned many things in the game And dick riding wasn't one Seen the fan base grow My haters learned to love But not all I write on the flaws that I have done Commit to staying true Never glorify the gun If sidetracked My fans remind me to drop something Reminiscent bout the shows And the other fun things A crowd full of people could make A different city feel like home Especially, when I hear them chant On a high note Can't be an idol but an example Of all the obstacles We got yet to trample I'm planting all my seeds Along this game never wrote The outcome is all these ears That allow me to grow And as the number keep growing I swear to you That I won't ever fall victim Of losing sight of my conscious mind [Hook - Carolyn Rodriguez]
