there isn't much that i feel i need
a solid soul, and the blood i bleed
but with a little cat and by my spouse
i only want a proper house

i don't care for fancy things
or take part in the freshest way
but to provide for my mine who ask
i will work hard, on my father's grave
on my father's grave

i don't mean to seem like i care about material things
like a social status
i just want four walls and adobe slabs for my boys

there isn't much that i feel i need
a solid soul, and the blood i bleed
but with a little cat and by my spouse
i only want a proper house

i don't care for fancy things
or to take part in the freshest way
but to provide for my mine who ask
i will work hard, on my father's grave
on my father's grave
father's grave

i don't mean to seem like i care about material things
like a social status
i just want four walls and adobe slabs for my boys

    General CommentThe song is about being happy with what you have. Not needing the extras to be satisfied. This version trumps the Animal Collective original IMO.
