Common People

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 I'll have rum and coca-cola." She said "Fine,".....
And then 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".

Oh 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."
But she just laughed an 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
`cos when you're laid in bed at night
Watching roaches climb the wall
If you called your dad he could stop it all yeah

You'll never live like common people
You'll never do what ever common people do
You'll never fail like common people
You'll never watch your life slide out of view

And then 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.

Like a dog lying in a corner
They will bite you and never warn you
Look out.

They'll tear your insides out

`cos everybody hates a tourist
Especially one who thinks it's all such a laugh
Yeah and the chip stain and 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 left to go
You are amazed that they exist
And they burn so bright whilst you can only wonder why.

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
`cos when you're laid in bed at night
Watching .... roaches climb the wall
If you called your Dad he could stop it all, Yeah.

Never live like common people
Never do what common people do
Never fail like common people
Never watch your life .... slide out of view

And then dance, and drink, .... and screw
Because there's nothing else to do

Jarvis todavía me ponelos pelos de punta 12 años después. Se podría poner un post como este sobre cualquiera de las canciones de ese disco, absolutamente glorioso. Yo me quedo con el freak paranoico de I spy, que conspira para vengarse de los triunfadores...

Genial también el nuevo disco de Jarvis en solitario "Cunts are still running the world".
El más puro estilo Common People.

Gracias a J.K. el mundo supo que Michael Jackson era Common People. Vamos, de lo más ramplón.

Del concierto de Pulp en el Primavera Sound del 2002 recuerdo a Jarvis con la camiseta roja con el toro negro de Osborne, haciendo lo que quería encima del escenario, y negándose a tocar "Common People", "Disco 2.000" y "Miss-Shapes", con lo que los platos fuertes fueron "Razzmatazz", "Babies", "Do You Remember the First Time?" y "This Is Hardcore".

Sin embargo, donde me acojonó y me ganó para siempre fue el otro día en el Summercase, tocando todo el repertorio de su primer disco en solitario y terminando con una monumental versión de "Eye of the Tiger" (sí, la de Rocky). Jarvis es mucho Jarvis. :-))))

El Different Class es un disco para escuchar una y otra vez.
