Lyrics

Simple Things Eddie Watkins Jr

When I wake up and see the sun a-peeping
Turn over and watch my woman sleeping
A peaceful feeling comes over me
When there’s place I’d rather be
I thank god for the simple things in life

When I get up and stand on two strong legs
Stretch my arms yawn and scratch my head
Look into the mirror and see
A man today I’m proud to be
I thank god for the simple things in life

I know inside the daily round
There’s so much that can weigh us down
With all the worldly happenings
Just where would we be without the simple things

When my woman tells me that she’s so happy
And my precious babies say I love you granddaddy
My eyes well up I must confess
With tears of joy and happiness
I thank god for the simple things in life
(Music)
(Bridge)

In the evening when the moon shines through my window
And I lay my head down on my favorite pillow
Graced and blessed with another day
As I close my eyes and drift away
I thank god for the simple things in life.
