ORDINARY PEOPLE

Little Jimmy just bought high-top sneakers

He wants to fly high like his heroes can

He's got a smile like Michael Jordan

In the school yard, Jimmy, he's the man

I'm sitting here watching his heart beating

He's ten feet tall, all five foot four of him

Come six o'clock working out his foul shots

The ball ain't falling, Momma's calling

She smiles and says

Chorus:

You and me, we're ordinary people

Living in our ordinary lives

We can be ordinary people

But these are extraordinary times

She lives alone, got four kids through high school

She cleans houses and takes in wash at night

You'd never know what she don't have much

Because she's rich with the things money can't buy

She don't need clothes

She don't want diamonds

Don't got a brand new car to drive in

What she got is love and that's a lot

At least it's a good start

Chorus:

You and me, we're ordinary people

Living in our ordinary lives

We can be ordinary people

But these are extraordinary times

Everybody wants to be somebody

Everybody wants to be someone

We only want to watch the game on Sunday

Sit back and catch a little buzz

Ain't nobody wants to be nobody

Everybody wants a little love

Everybody wants to be the hero

Ride into the setting sun

Chorus:

You and me, we're ordinary people

Living in our ordinary lives

We can be ordinary people

But these are extraordinary times

I got dreams like ordinary people

I can see it when I close my eyes at night

Can't you see we're ordinary people

These are extraordinary times
