La Musique de Disney - Un Héritage en Chansons

Give Me The Simple Life (2’06)

Music by Harry Ruby and Rube Bloom
Lyrics by Harry Ruby and Rube Bloom
Performed by Jamie Cullum

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
