Simple's Grand

Got a note from a young lady,      On the net the other day,  She said my rhymes were "simple,"      But she liked them anyway.  She may have hit on something       I don't think she understands,  Took me sixty years of living       To discover "simple's grand." My life was once much different,       I joined the rat race every day.  Always busy doing something,       Never had the time to play. 'Cause I had to have security,       And there's lots of "stuff" to buy,  Fun can always wait 'till later,       As long as I don't die. Had a friend that lived beside me,       He was busy as could be,  'Till he dropped dead at forty,       Man- that really got to me. So I think I'll do things different       With the time that's left to me,  Maybe slow down just a little,       To see what I can see.  Now all you lads and ladies       Traveling in that old "Fast Lane," If you figure this out early,       Life will bring a lot less pain. Me, I'm going to take things easy,       Since I've come to understand; Life can be a "Bowl of Cherries"      When you find out "Simple's Grand."
