Verse 1
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’ll help you some sunny day. 

Take your time. Don't live too fast, 
Troubles will come and they will pass. 
Go find a woman. You'll find love, 
And don't forget, son, there is someone up above. 

(Chorus) 
And be a simple kind of man. 
Be something you love and understand. 
Baby be a simple kind of man. 
Oh, 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, oh baby, if you try. 
All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied. 

(Chorus) 

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

(Chorus)
