Give Me The Simple Life

Lyrics:Harry Ruby
Music:Rube Bloom

The song was publishe 1945.

This cheerful song introduced in the movie,
"Wake Up and Dream" (1946).

In that "Wake Up and Dream", John Payne sings it.
(He had studied the voice at Juilliard School!)

Wake Up and Dream

Folks are blessed who make the best of everyday
Living by their own philosophy
Everyone beneath the sun must find the way
And I have found the only way for me

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 if 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
Give me the simple life
