(M. Riperton, R. Rudolph)

If Simon says be glad today, I surely do what Simon say;
And if you'd like to see me smile, then you're in luck, cause that's my style...

My pretty bird up in the tree, I hear the song you sing for me;
The sky's fantastic blue or grey, and here we are alive today...

Hey...
The simple things, the lovely simple things:
The sunset and the dawn...
The simple things, the lovely simple things;
I could go on, and on, and on...

For the simple pleasures are worth more than treasures
That your paper money ever bring...

This song is old, this song is new; this song is me, this song is you...
I like to play out in the rain; I like the sun to shine again..
And again and again...

Each day so many things to see, and I'm so glad I am me;
And you, my friends, are pretty too, and I'm so glad that you are you...
You are you, you are you...

The simple things, the lovely simple things:
The sunset and the dawn...
The simple things, the lovely simple things;
I could go on, and on, and on...

For the simple pleasures are worth more than treasures
That your paper money ever bring...
