Simple Man's Mantra
Lyrics
Verse
I'm a simple man, Baby.
Don't let no worries bother me.
Yeah, I'm a simple man, Baby.
Don't let no worries bother me.
Just 'cause sun ain't shinin'
don't mean a man can't clearly see.

Verse
I'm a simple man, Baby.
You take the dollars. I'll take the dimes.
Yeah, I'm a simple man, Baby.
You take the dollars. I'll take the dimes.
'cause when a man get too much money, it makes his good sense hard to find.

Instrumental verse

Verse
I'm a simple man, Baby.
I let the good Lord carry my load.
Yeah, I'm a simple man, Baby.
I let the good Lord carry my load.
Don't want to hear from that ol' devil.
He got no place I wanna go.

Instrumental verse

Bridge
Yeah I'm a simple man, Baby
I'm a simple man, Baby....
I'm a simple man Baby....
Yeah I'm a simple man, Baby....

Ain't got no time for fuss or fightin'.
Don't need no wrongs for rightin'.
'cause a simple man, baby, is all I ever want to be....
