Come 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.

Uh ohoh

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.

Chorus:
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 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.
And 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 you heart and 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.
Oh won't you do this, for me son, if you can?
(x3)

    I think that this is about enjoying the little things in life and not rushing things. Because if you do then you dont have complete happiness.
