I'm, I'm just a simple man
I have to do the simple things that a simple man can
You are holding out your hand
You want to know the simple things in my simple plan
And I know there's so much to share
So what else can I do?

Yes, I'm a simple man (I'm a simple man)
Come now and take my hand (come and take my hand)
Now and forever, never to be lonely

Yes, I'm a simple man (I'm a simple man)
I do the best I can (I do the best I can)
Now we're together, just remember only
That I'm a simple man

Love is just a simple thought
A little bit the worse for wear
like a thief who got caught

Hope is just a thing you bought
It's just another safe white lie
that every body got taught

I can see you look to me
So what else can I do?

Yes, I'm a simple man (I'm a simple man)
Come now and take my hand (come and take my hand)
Now and forever, never to be lonely

Yes, I'm a simple man (I'm a simple man)
I do the best I can (I do the best I can)
Now we're together, just remember only
That I'm a simple man

I do the best I can
I got a simple, simple plan
I hope you understand

I'm just a simple man (yes, I'm a simple man)
I'm holding out my hand (I'm holding out my hand)
It's such a simple, simple plan (it's such a simple plan)
I think you understand (you understand)

Yes, I'm a simple man (I'm a simple man)
Come now and take my hand (come and take my hand)
Now and forever, never to be lonely

Yes, I'm a simple man (I'm a simple man)
I do the best I can (I do the best I can)
Now we're together, just remember only
It's so simple

    General CommentKlaus here is talking about all the hype and disdain of him. This was the title track of his second LP. He was an openly homosexual singer at a time when being gay was considered bad by the majority of people. What he's really trying to say is that love for gay people is not that much different than for straight people; both require a serious emotional commitment, and that everyone is overthinking things.
