Song Description

The singer tries to lightheartedly tell the audience about a song he wrote for his love and along the way we find out that his singing was one of the things that drove her away.

Story Behind the Song

I, like many song writers I've conversed with, write songs that our spouses just don't appreciate. Some barely put up with our obsession to write, and record these works. Maybe we've even written songs for our muses that they just don't even want to listen to.

Broadjam Member Reviews

love the message here, love the comedy. Its an old style of comedy, like a Pete Seeger approach. Nice heartfelt feel too, hopefully everything went well with this girl

    - Patrick Hurley

simple indeed, like the clarity of the ditty...

Lyrics

Simple Song
©2012 jeff rauschl

A simple little song
with a simple little melody
I'll try to keep it simple
and I hope you'll sing along

I wrote it for a love of mine
to show how much she meant to me
I tried to keep it simple
'cause I hoped she'd sing along

And I sang for her each morning
I sang for her at tea time
I sang it as a lullaby
before she went to sleep
I sang it while she took a bath,
the place she went to hide away.
I sang it from the front porch
when she left me on that day.

A simple little song
with a simple little melody
I'll try to keep it simple
and I hope you'll sing along

Perhaps I'll add a whistle part
'cause everyone loves whistling
I hope that you will join in
when the chorus comes around

She said she needed more
than just a simple little country boy
She said the city lights
were always calling out her name
She said "It's complicated,
beyond simplistic reasoning"
She said that she and I would
"simply never feel the same"

(Whistle part)

Now I sing it in my solitude
I sing it in my loneliness
I sing it as a lullaby
before I go to sleep
Perhaps if I had listened more
then she would still be here with me
perhaps the hardest truth
is wrapped in sweet simplicity.

A simple little song
with a simple little melody
I'll try to keep it simple
and I hope you'll sing along

but maybe three part harmony
sang with deep intensity
would be the magic recipe
to bring her back to me

(harmony)
A simple little song
with a simple little melody
I'll try to keep it simple
and I hope you'll sing along

or maybe if I play it fast
she would just be so impressed
she would end my loneliness
and come back home to me

(fast instrumental)

A simple little song
with a simple little melody.
