Be a Simple Kind of Man

Simple Man Lyrics by Lynyrd Skynyrd


Mama told me when I was young
Sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
Oh, if you do this, it will help you some sunny day

Boy, take your time, don't live too fast
Troubles will come and they will pass
To 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
Be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this, if you can?


Forget your lust, 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
And be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this for me, son, if you can?


Boy, don't you worry, you'll find yourself
Follow your heart, nothing else
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
And be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this for me, son, if you can?

And be a simple kind of man
And be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this, if you can?

And be a simple kind of man
And be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man

clipping quoting Alexis de Tocqueville from

Happiness: a history

By Darrin M. McMahon

What would it take for you to be happy, to be satisfied?

clear, intelligible, understandable, unmistakable,
lucid. natural, unembellished, neat. artless, guileless, ingenuous.
