give me the simple life lyrics – jamie cullum

one two, a one two three four

i don’t believe in frettin’ or grievin’
why mess around with strife?
guess i was cut out to step up and strut out
give me the simple life

it must be pleasant dining on pheasant
using the proper knife
i want tomatoes and mashed potatoes
give me the simple life

cottage small is all i’m after
not one that’s sp*cious and wide
ah, that brings the joy and laughter
with the ones that you love inside

you take the high road, i’ll take the low road
free from all care and strife
sounds corny and seedy, oh yes, indeed
give me the simple life

a cottage small is all i’m after
not one that’s sp*cious and wide
a house that brings the joy and laughter
with the ones that you love inside

you take the high road, i’ll take the low road
free from all care and strife
sounds corny and seedy, oh yes, indeed
give me the simple life, give me the simple life
