John Conlee - Common Man 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 you hospitality

But I wish that we would go

Let me drive us to McDonald's and I'll talk to you

Concernin' somethin' 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, it gonna stay that way

'Cause high-browed 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 chug-a-lug a mug of Budweiser Beer

Than sip a crystal glass of wine

So won't you make your mind up 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 it's gonna stay that way

'Cause high-browed people lose their sanity

And a common man is what I'll be

And I'm happy just being free

And I'm happy just being 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, it gonna stay that way

'Cause high-browed people lose their sanity

And a common man is what I'll be
