Simple Things Lyrics

If you love the life you live

Then you'll get a lot more done

Be more inclined to take the reins

Than turn away and run

It's very rare it seems to get a lifetime guarantee'

So I suppose self satisfaction be the key

My father is a wealthy' self made man

 

But his wealth does not consist of riches or acres of land

Instead he has a family who are his biggest fans

That's something that I one day hope to have

 

So I'll cherish the simple things

The easy took for granted things

Like going round my Mum's house for my tea

And argue with my sister'

Only God knows how I missed her

It's the simple things that mean the most to me

 

Argh' he gets up each day at five

Starts the car and makes the drive

Shutters up' starts the fryers

Serves out food to all the buyers in the town

As they stand there in the same old line

Get there every day at the same old time

No' you never hear him grumble and groan

Cause they're the people in the line that he built it on

And like me he cherished the simple things

The easy took for granted things

Like going round his Mum's house for my tea

 

And argue with his sister'

Only God knows how he missed her

 

It's the simple things tha mean the most to him
