Simple Man Lyrics

Mama 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'll help you .. some sunny day

Oh take your time - Don't live too fast
Troubles will come … and they will pass
Go find a woman .. and you'll find love
And don't forget son .. There is someone .. up above

Baby be a simple .. kind of man
Oh be something .. you love and understand
Baby be a simple .. kind of man
Oh, won't you do this - for me son - if you can?

Forget your lust .. for the rich man's gold
All that you need … is in your soul
And you can do this .. oh baby .. if you try
All that I want for you my son .. Is to be satisfied

Baby be a simple .. kind of man
Oh Be something .. you love and understand
Baby be a simple .. kind of man
Oh, won't you do this - for me son - if you can?

Boy, don't you worry .. you'll find yourself
Follow your heart, … and nothing else
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you my son - Is to be satisfied

Baby be a simple .. kind of man
Oh Be something .. you love and understand
Baby be a simple .. kind of man
Oh, won't you do this - for me son - if you can?
Oh, won't you do this - for me son - if you can?
