Normal People

Common People by Pulp

Normal People

(autistic community version)

I come from Scotland and I have a thirst for knowledge

I studied photography at Reid Kerr College

That’s where I

Found my eye

I never wanted to be loaded

I really love the smell of rum and Coca-Cola

That is fine

And I’d don’t like drinking wine

I said

I’m not like normal people

Don’t understand what it is normal people do

Wanna be an autistic person

Not mask along with normal people

Like you

Well what else could I do

I said I’ll be me, you can do you

I went to a supermarket

I don’t know why

But they are always staring in there

And the music blares

I got stressed and lost my money

You just laughed and said

Oh you’re so funny

I said; yeah

I can’t see anyone else smiling in here

Are you sure?

I’m not like normal people

Don’t understand what it is normal people do

Wanna be an autistic person

Not mask along with normal people

Like you

But you didn’t understand

You just tried to hold my hand

Panic attack at a shop

Gave it all and lost my job

Tried so hard but called a fool

Lost me by going to school

But I was in for a fight

I would wake up to a fright

Memories trapped behind a wall

I wore the mask and now I feel it all, yeah

I couldn’t live like normal people

I couldn’t do whatever normal people do

I always failed as a normal person

Held back while my life slid out of view

And you say “Just be you”

But that’s what I’ve been trying to do

Fit in with the normal people

Fit in and it might just get me through

Laugh along with the normal people

Laugh along but I know they’re laughing at me

And the different things that I do

Because you think that cruel is cool

I don’t want to be a normal person like you

I don’t want to be a normal person like you

I don’t want to be a normal person like you

I don’t want to be a normal person like you

I don’t want to be a normal person like you

I don’t want to be a normal person like you

No, nah, nah, nah, nah

No, nah, nah, nah, nah

No, nah, nah, nah, nah

No, nah, nah, nah, nah

It’s true...

All my best and love

Ross
