♫ Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man ♫

  • 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 yeah)


    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


    And be a simple kind of man
    Oh be somethin' 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
    If you try
    All that I want for you my son, is to be satisfied


    And be a simple kind of man
    Oh be somethin' you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh won't you do this for me son, if you can? (Oh yes I will)


    Boy don't you worry
    You'll find yourself
    Follow your heart
    And nothing else
    And you can do this, oh babe, if you try
    All that I want for you my son, is to be satisfied


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


    Baby be a simple, be a simple man
    Oh be somethin' you love and understand.
