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 will help you some sunny day
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
Be something you love and understand
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

Boy, don't you worry, you'll find yourself
Follow you heart and nothing else
And you can do this if you try
All I want for you my son,
Is to be satisfied

And be a simple kind of man
Be something you love and understand
Be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this for me son,
If you can?
