Yeah, uh
They say money can't buy you love
They say money can't buy you love
They never seem to listen 
I'm all ears

Just copped your girl a brand new Rolex 
But you can never find the time to spend at home
Thinkin' it's gon' keep her happy 
When time is all she wanted all along 

It's the simple things in life we forget 
You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said
Why do you make something so easy so complicated  Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it

So you think that you know what's important  Steady chasin' your fame and your fortune 
But you don't know
You're chasing a dime losin' a treasure  Those dollars don't make sense to me at all
Ooh, it goes

Duh da duh da
You give her spending money
Duh da duh da
But all she want to spend is time alone (tonight)
Keep givin' her
The finer things but
But she don't really need that
If you don't stop you're
You're gonna end up alone (alone)
The world without love
Why would you do it

It's the simple things in life we forget 
You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said
Why do you make something so easy so complicated  Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it

It's the simple things in life we forget 
You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said
Why do you make something so easy so complicated  Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it

Stop try'na buy her love
'Cause you won't ever have enough 
There's always someone with more than you
You need to pay her attention 
Give her what she needs 
Do the simple things
 Before you lose your girl to me
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeeah 
Yeah yeah
Play on playa 
Yeah
Your girl comin' wit' me shorty, haha
I'm tellin' you man
'Cause you know

It's the simple things in life we forget 
You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said
Why do you make something so easy so complicated  Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it

You better look out
I hear you talkin', I hear you talkin' (ha)
But what are you saying 
Oh hoo oh hoo
Don't be a fool
You got a good thing 
Man are you blind  Stupid or crazy?
You got a good thing (uh)
You got a good thing  Special lady
You better hold on
And give her what she want
 Before she move on
Man I tell you cars, clothes, and fancy things don't mean a damn thing 
If you ain't kickin it, baby

It's the simple things in life we forget 
You hear her talkin' but don't hear what she said
Why do you make something so easy so complicated  Searching for what's right in front of your face
But you can't see it

Don't let this be the thing you'll always regret, no
It's right there, it's right there
