Harry L. Horton – Simple Boy lyrics

Life just seemed so simple - when I was a little boy
Playing hide and seek - with all the girls and boys
We played through out the neighborhood - and all the neighbors understood
All we really wanted was to play
I wish I could close my eyes - to a younger day

Life just seemed so simple - when I was a younger kid
Never seemed to matter - much what we did
We rode our bikes to the corner store - played pinball for an hour or more
Never worried about the time of day
Wish I could close my eyes - to a younger day

Life's just not as simple - now that I'm all grown up
Now it's up to me - to keep my yard kept up
Well the cost of livings more and more - trying to keep up with the folks next door
There's never any time for me to play
Now I wish I could close my eyes - wish I could close my eyes - to a younger day

I still recall - when people shook your hand - their word was gold
And people took a stand - to set things right - living day by day

Now life's just not as simple - as an older man
Now I have to walk - where I could have ran
Everyones in such a hurry - bills and taxes makes me worry
No one even gives the time of day

Well I wish I could close my eyes - now I wish I could close my eyes
Wish I could close my eyes to a younger day
Wish I could close my eyes - and go away

Now life's just not as simple...
