Simpleton


 
My daddy told me when I was young
Come sit beside me, my stupid son
And listen closely to what I say
And it'll help you some dark, rainy day.
 
Just be a simple, be a simpleton
Go out and get stoned, and have lots of fun
Just be a simple, be a simpleton
Oh, won't you do this, if you can, for me son?
 
Don't take your time, just live real fast
Troubles will come and kick your ass
Go find a woman and you'll find love
And don't forget son, wrap it in a glove
 
And be a simple, be a simpleton
Go out and get laid, and have lots of fun
Just be a simple, be a simpleton Oh,
won't you do this, if you can, for me son?
 
Get your money at the rich man's door
Take your lust to a twenty dollar whore
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you my son is to stay high
 
And be a simple, be a simpleton
Go out and get drunk, and have lots of fun
Just be a simple, be a simpleton
Oh, won't you do this, if you can, for me son?
 
Boy, don't you worry you'll sure catch hell
Avoid the cops and the courts as well
And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
All that I want for you my son is to be stoned and high
 
And be a simple, be a simpleton
Go out and get stoned, and have lots of fun
Just be a simple, be a simpleton
Oh, won't you do this, if you can, for me son?
