the simple life

i dont ask for alot out  of  this world
just enough to bet by
im not trying to be a multi millionaire
just looking for a small peice of the pie

not trying to buy a great big castle
a simple house will do just fine
and maybe i dont need a limo 
just a car that i can call mine

and all of that gold and jewelery
dont have to be hanging around my neck
as long as i can afford to pay my bills
 and hold my head up with respect

i've never been that picky 
i generally take what i can get 
i just hate to be stressed 
 by living from check to check

forget about the jones's 
who cares how they live 
i'm just trying to keep my head above water
and not worrie about paying my next bill

and all the fame who needs
 to be reconized everywhere they go
i just need to feel loved 
by the few people i know

as long as i can afford the things i need
and feel everythings going to be alright
that's all it really takes for me 
im ok with the simple life
