Did I ever tell you about William Shatner?


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 rum and coca-cola
 She said "fine"

 And then in 30 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"
 but 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
 '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 whatever 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 although 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's 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
 'cause 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 whatever 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
 I want to live with common people like you.....
