Simple Things

This song is by Minnie Riperton and appears on the album Adventures in Paradise (1975) and on the compilation album Capital Gold: The Best of Minnie Riperton (1993).

If Simon says, "Be glad today,"
I surely do what Simon say,
And if you'd like to see me smile,
Then you're in luck, cause that's my style...

My pretty bird up in the tree,
I hear the song you sing for me...
The sky's fantastic, blue or grey,
And here we are, alive today...
Hey, hey, hey...

Hey!
The simple things, the lovely simple things:
The sunset and the dawn...
The simple things, the lovely simple things;
I could go on, and on, and on...

For the simple pleasures are worth more than treasures
That your paper money ever bring...

This song is old, this song is new;
This song is me, this song is you...
I like to play out in the rain,
I like the sun to shine again...
And again and again...

Each day, so many things to see,
And I'm so glad that I am me...
And you, my friends, are pretty too,
And I'm so glad that you are you...
You are you, you are you...

Ow!
The simple things, the lovely simple things:
The sunset and the dawn...
The simple things, the lovely simple things;
I could go on, and on, and on...

For the simple pleasures are worth more than treasures
That your paper money ever bring...

Ah, ya-ya-ya-ya-ya, ya-ya-ya-ya...
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, hoo-ooh-hoo...
