Simple Man

Simple Man

My mother told me, when I was young: “Come sit beside me, my only son and listen closely, to what I say.

And if you do this, it will help you some sunny day.

Oh take your time now, don’t live too fast. Troubles will come, and troubles will pass.

Go find a woman, and you’ll find love and don’t forget son, there’s someone up above.

And be a simple kind of man. Oh be something, yeah, you love and understand.

And be a simple, yeah, kind of man. Oh won’t you do this for me son, if you can?

Forget the lust now, for rich man’s gold. All that you need is, is in your soul.

And you can do this son, if you try. All that I want for you my son, is to be satisfied.

And be a simple kind of man. Oh be something, yeah, you love and understand.

And be a simple, yeah, kind of man. Oh won’t you do this for me son, if you can?

But don’t you worry, you’ll find yourself. Follow your heart, and nothing else.

And you can do this, if you try. All that I want for you my son, is to be satisfied.

And be a simple kind of man. Oh be something, yeah, you love and understand.

And be a simple, yeah, kind of man. Oh won’t you do this for me son, if you can?

And be a simple kind of man. Oh be something, yeah, you love and understand.

And be a simple, yeah, kind of man. Oh won’t you do this for me son, if you can?”
