Oh! The Simple Life!


"Oh! The Simple Life!"

Have you ever smelt the air just before a rain?
Have you watched the leaves tumble down a country lane?
Have you ever tasted the sweetness of mountain air upon your lips?
Have you watched a hillside stream as it tumbles and trips?

Do you know the feeling of cool dirt in between your toes?
Do you know the joy of playing hide-and-seek down the corn rows?
Do you lay beneath the heavens and watch the silver stars fall?
Do you wonder at the majesty of a fir tree so tall?

Have you tasted the first honey-suckle ever so sweet?
Have you watched a kitten ramble gaily about your feet?
Have you walked through the earth, just kissed with the summer dew?
Have you felt the tender trust of a child’s eyes so true?

Oh! The simple life! How wonderful it can be!
For with all it’s peaceful ways my heart is light and free
I’d rather have my rolling hills; the beautiful blue sky
Than own the largest mansion with a tear drop on my eye
