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'll help you some sunny day

Oh 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
Oh be somethin' you'll 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
Oh be somethin' you'll love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this for me son
If you can?

Oh yes I will

Boy don't you worry
You'll find yourself
Follow your heart
And nothing else
And you can do this for me
If you try
All I want for you my son
Is be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Oh be somethin' you'll love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this for me son
If you can?

Baby be a simple
Be a simple man
Oh be somethin' you'll love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
