less lyrics – ben harper

i could give you more
but you still wouldn’t be happy
i could give all you need
but you still wouldn’t be satisfied
i could give to our poor
now what good would that be?
you’d shake hands with jesus
and you still would not believe

if you’re, happy with nothing
you’ll be so very, happy with me
the less you expect
the more you’ll be pleased
the more you’ll be pleased

i could change your mind
but what would you really be thinking?
i’d show you a sign
but you’d just p*ss it on by
i could hold your hand
but then we’d both be sinking
the problem with the world
is everyone’s not just like you

if you’re happy with nothing
you’ll be so very, happy with me
the less you expect
the more you’ll be pleased
the more you’ll be pleased

if you’re happy with nothing
you’ll be so very happy with me
if you’re happy with nothing
you’ll be so very, happy with me
if you’re happy with nothing
you’ll be so very, happy with me

if you’re happy with nothing
you’ll be so very, happy with me
if you’re happy with nothing
you’ll be so very, happy with me
if you’re happy with nothing
you’ll be so very, happy with me

so happy with nothing
so happy with me
