They are human.
Yanis is married to the woman Jarvis went out with and who inspired common people? (Not sure those details are 100% but it was amusing)

Jarvis has never explicitly confirmed the identify of the inspiration of the female character in the lyrics of "Common People" & he certainly has never suggested he ever went out with Danae Stratou.
They are both Common People

...Greek publicationAthens Voice first drew attention to the possible link between Stratou and Cocker, who attended a film studies course at the London institution, noting that her biography reveals she studied sculpture at Saint Martins and that her (“loaded”) father is industrialist Phaidon Stratos.

The Cypriot artist Katerina Kana had previously told a Greek magazine that she was the inspiration behind Pulp’s hit, but Cocker’s memory remains muddied: “On that BBC3 documentary [The Story of Common People], the researchers went through all the people who were contemporaries of mine at Saint Martins and they tried to track her down,” he told Uncut in 2014. “They showed me a picture and it definitely wasn’t her. I dunno. Maybe she wasn’t Greek. Maybe I misheard her.”

On the same documentary, Cocker even seems to suggest he made the whole thing up: “I say in the song, ‘She studied sculpture at Saint Martins College’, which is actually untrue.”

I relied on memory though
I've met both, that works.
From what i understand it was a song made up around someone who said that strange thing to him which stuck out, i wouldn't think you'd take all the lyrics literally as he's got poetic licence to make it all flow.
Wombles?

I don't think there's any such thing, st martins is a fancy pants art, design and fashion college although I think they have branched out into more stuff, would not sound so good in the song to say she studied modern art level 3 at st martins.

He's also said before that the i want to sleep with common people bit was a poetic licence, she just said she wanted to do what common people do and he thought thats strange and took her to a supermarket cos he couldn't think of anything else.

One is a nob and the other one isn't? I can't be sure that's the difference because I don't know who the first one is. I'm just taking a punt - gotta be in to win.

Oh, I misread the question - they are both nobs then?

OP, in you favourite topics of focus, they are both foreigners, use our public services, pay little or no taxes, take our jobs and are terror of some sort?
