    "Give Me The Simple Life" Lyrics

    Gerry Mulligan feat. Annie Ross

    I don't believe in frettin' and grievin'
    Why mess around with strife?
    I never was cut out to step and strut out.
    Give me the simple life.

    Some find it pleasant dining on pheasant.
    Those things roll off my knife;
    Just serve me tomatoes; and mashed potatoes;
    Give me the simple life.

    A cottage small is all I'm after,
    Not one that's spacious and wide.
    A house that rings with joy and laughter
    And the ones you love inside.

    Some like the high road, I like the low road,
    Free from the care and strife.
    Sounds corny and seedy, but yes, indeed-y;
    Give me the simple life.
