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 Yah!


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 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


And 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 won't you do this for me son if you can?

Baby be a simple, be a simple man.
