Lyrics

Well, mama 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.
Ah, yeah, it will.

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.

And be a simple kind of man.
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, if you can?

Forget 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.
All that I want from you, my son, is to be satisfied.

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

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.

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