Bon Jovi Ordinary People Lyrics

We are rolling, good

Little Jimmy just bought high top sneakers

Wants to fly high like his heroes can

He’s got the smile like Michael Jordan

In the schoolyard, Jimmy, he’s the man

I’m sitting here watching his heart beating

He’s ten feet tall, all five feet four of him

Come six o’clock working out his foul shot

Who we fooling, Mama’s calling, she smiles and says

You and me, we’re ordinary people

Living in our ordinary lives

We can be ordinary people

These are extraordinary times

She lives alone, got four kids through high school

She cleans houses and she takes in wash at night

You’d never know that 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 need a brand new car to drive in

What she’s got is love and that’s a lot

At least it’s a good start

You and me, we’re ordinary people

Living in our ordinary lives

We can be ordinary people

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, catch a little buzz

Ain’t nobody wants to be nobody

Everybody wants a little love

Everybody wants to be the hero

And ride into the setting sun

You and me, we’re ordinary people

Living in our ordinary lives

We can be ordinary people

These are extraordinary times

And I’ve got dreams like ordinary people

I can see them when I close my eyes at night

Can’t you see we’re ordinary people

These are extraordinary times

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey
