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, 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.
Baby, be a simple kind of man."
