Mama Told Me When I Was Young


Come sit beside me, my only son
And listen closely to what I say
Oh if you do this
It will help you some sunny day

Uh ohoh

Oh 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

Chorus:
And be a simple kind of man
Be something you love and understand
Baby be a simple kind of man
Won't you do this 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

And be a simple kind of man
And 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?

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

And be a simple kind of man
And 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?
