Hey, when was the last time
You sat down and had dinner with your kids?
Talked about what's going on in their lives?

Hey, when was the last time you just stopped
And helped somebody out?
I bet you can't remember

Well, a lot of people are saying
We're changing for the better
But that don't interest me

I like the simple life, the way it used to be
We left our doors wide open, we didn't need no key
I been around the world, seen all there is to see
I'd trade all those memories for one more day how it used to be
I like the simple life

I wanna get up Sunday morning
And go fishing with my boy
Watch the sunset, kick back in my yard
Take my Harley on a real long lazy Sunday drive
And do a little more nothing once in a while

Yeah, maybe kick my feet up
Watch a little re-run on TV
Laughing with ol' Barney, Andy, and Aunt Bee

I like the simple life, the way it used to be
We left our doors wide open, we didn't need no key
I been around the world, seen all there is to see
I'd trade all those memories for one more day how it used to be
I like the simple life

Yeah, everything's moving by so fast
I swear sometimes we just can't see
So caught up in where we're trying to get
Life as we know it could be gone in a minute

I want the simple life, the way it used to be
We left our doors wide open, didn't need no key
I been around the world, seen all there is to see
I'd trade all those memories for one more day
I like the simple life, I like the simple life
I want the simple life, yeah
