A Simple Life
Here To Play
Maine listening to the loons sounding
their low whistling calls to each other.

I think that I was born to sing this song for you today
I think that I was born to sing and laugh and dance and play
Yes, I think I was born to soak up lots of golden sun
I think I was born to have a little bit more fun

So take me to the mountains and find a winding stream
Build myself a campfire and do a little dreaming
I'll stare into the embers while I whittle with my knife
Take me to a place where I can lead a simple life

I think that I was born to sing this song for you today
I think that I was born to sing and laugh and dance and play
Yes, I think I was born to soak up lots of golden sun
I think I was born to have a little bit more fun

Take me to the ocean with its tides and sandy dunes
Or take me to a lake where I can listen to the loons
I don’t want to be encumbered by unhappiness and strife
Take me to a place where I can lead a simple life

I want to live more peacefully
Take a breath and sit beneath a tree
Let the wind wind all around my soul
A simple life - that is my goal

If I must be in the city then please take me to a park
That’s where I can climb and slide and swing until its dark
I want to be accompanied by my children and my wife
Take me to a place where I can lead a simple life

I think that I was born to sing this song for you again
I think that I was born to sing it eight, nine times or ten
Yes, I think I was born to soak up lots of golden sun
I think I was born to have a little bit more fun
