Shinedown - Simple man

Well mama told me, when I was young
she said 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

Oh, take your time
Don't live too fast
Troubles will come, and they will pass
You'll find a woman, oh yeah
And you find love
And don't forget that there is a someone up above

And be a simple kind of man
Be a something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this, oh my son,
if you can?


Forget your lust from rich man's gold
All that you need now, is in your soul
And you can do this, oh baby, if it's right
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Be a something you love and understand
So baby, be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this, oh my son,
if you can?

Oh, don't you worry, you'll find yourself
Follow your heart, and nothing else
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Oh, be a something you love and understand
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this, oh my son, if you can?
Baby, be a simple kind of man
Oh, won't you do this, oh my son, if you can?
