Common Man

When a crook stands tall

At the top of the heap

Invites go out

To each and every creep


When a garlanded killer

Goes onto lead a fold

Brutes, rapists, criminals

They all grow bold


Please note, that I’m different

I’m the common man

Let me in 

& watch as I sweep your land


I’m proud, I’m Indian

I’m the common man

I’m here to clean my country

Got my broom in hand


There’s too much garbage

At the end of most polls

I’m done with cribbing

I’m setting up new goals


The hour has come

To do what they can’t

Re-write the rules

Change the game-plan


Please note, that I’m different

I’m the common man

Let me in 

& watch as I sweep your land


I’m proud, I’m Indian

I’m the common man

I’m here to clean my country

Got my broom in hand


I’m proud, I’m Indian

I’m the common man

I’m proud, I’m Indian

I’m the common man
