Simple Man

Verse 1

Well Momma told me, when I was young
Said 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

Verse 2

Oh, take your time, don't live too fast
Troubles will come, and they will pass
You'll find a woman, and you'll find love
And don't forget that, there is a'someone, up above

Chorus

And be a simple, kind of man
Mm'be something, you love and understand
{B}aby be a simple, kind of man
Oh won't you do this, for me son, if you can

Verse 3

{F'}get your lust, from the rich man's gold
All that you need now, is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try [ah..ai]
All that I want from you, my son, is to be satisfied

Chorus

And be a simple, kind of man
Mm'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

Verse 4

Oh 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 from you, my son, is to be satisfied

Chorus
(alt.)

And be a simple, kind of man
Oh won't you do this, for me son, if you can
So baby be a simple, be a simple man
Oh won't you do this, for me son, if you can
