Mama told me when I was young
Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
And if you do this, it will help you some sunny day

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

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 for me son
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
Be something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
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 I want for 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
Won't you do this for me son
If you can
