She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge,
she studied sculpture at Saint Martin’s College,
that’s where I,
caught her eye.
She told me that her Dad was loaded,
I said “In that case I’ll have a rum and coca-cola.”
She said “Fine.”
and in thirty 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.”
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 hand.
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,
cause when you’re laid in bed at night,
watching roaches climb the wall,
if you call your Dad he could stop it all.

You’ll never live like common people,
you’ll never do what common people do,
you’ll never fail like common people,
you’ll never watch your life slide out of view,
and dance and drink and screw,
because there’s nothing else to do.

Sing along with the common people,
sing along and it might just get you through,
laugh along with the common people,
laugh along even though they’re laughing at you,
and the stupid things that you do.
Because you think that poor is cool.

I want to live with common people,
I want to live with common people…

Prevod na srpski

Obični ljudi

Došla je iz Grčke, bila je gladna znanja,
Studirala je vajarstvo na Koledžu Sveti Martin,
Tamo sam joj
Zapao za oko.
Rekla mi je da joj je tata bogataš,
Ja sam rekao “U tom slučaju ću rum-kolu.”
Ona je rekla “Dobro.”
i u roku od trideset sekundi je rekla,

“Hoću da živim kao obični ljudi,
Hoću da radim sve što rade obični ljudi,
Hoću da spavam sa običnim ljudima,
Hoću da spavam sa običnim ljudima,
Kao što si ti.”

Pa šta sam drugo mogao –
Rekao sam “Videću šta mogu da uradim.”
Odveo sam je u supermarket,
Ne znam zašto ali negde sam morao da počnem,
Pa sam počeo tamo.
Rekao sam: pravi se da nemaš para,
Ona se samo nasmejala i rekla,
“Oh ti si tako smešan.”
Rekao sam: “da?
Pa ne vidim da se ovde još neko smeje.
Jesi li sigurna da želiš da živiš kao obični ljudi,
Želiš da vidiš sve što vide obični ljudi,
želiš da spavaš sa običnim ljudima,
želiš da spavaš sa običnim ljudima,
kao što sam ja.”
Ali ona nije shvatila,
Samo se nasmešila i držala me za ruku.
Iznajmi stan iznad radnje,
Ošišaj se i posao nađi.
Puši neku krdžu i igraj bilijar,
Pretvaraj se da nisi išla u školu.
Ali to ti ipak nikad neće ići,
Zato što, dok noću ležiš u krevetu,
Gledajući bubašvabe kako se penju uza zid,
Ako pozoveš svoga tatu, on bi mogao staviti tačku na sve to.

Nikad nećeš živeti kao obični ljudi,
Nikad nećeš raditi ono što rade obični ljudi,
Nikad nećeš doživeti neuspeh kao obični ljudi,
Nikad nećeš gledati kako ti život izmiče iz ruku,
i plesati i igrati i j…..,
jer nemaš pametnijeg posla.

Pevaj sa običnim ljudima,
Pevaj sa njima i možda uspeš,
Smej se sa običnim ljudima,
Smej se sa njima iako se oni smeju tebi,
I glupim stvarima koje radiš.
Zato što misliš da je cool biti siromašan.

Hoću da živim sa običnim ljudima,
Hoću da živim sa običnim ljudima…
