SIMPLE PLEASURES
words and music by Sam Cooper

I drive a big ol? Chevy with a V-8 engine that sucks up a lotta gas.
It?s got an AM radio and get-up-and-go, it?s got power to pass.
It gets me to work and it gets me back home and it gets me where I wanna go.
Life would be harder to take if the simple pleasures weren?t round no mo?.

Simple pleasures like a casual drive make a simple man like me feel alive.
Simple pleasures of better days, you better love ?em now ?cause they?re fadin? away.
Simple pleasures like Memphis soul, good time boogie and rock and roll.
Things are getting? artificial suddenly,
Just give me simple pleasures if you?re gonna love me.

After forty hours of regular work and twenty more of overtime,
You?d think that I?d complain ?cause I really should be drained,
But I?m ready to unwind.
Now Carol and me we always know what to do, we never make any plans
We know our favorite bars and so we hop into the car to see our favorite bands.

Simple pleasures like a casual drive make a simple man like me feel alive.
Simple pleasures of better days, you better love ?em now ?cause they?re fadin? away.
Simple pleasures like Memphis soul, good time boogie and rock and roll.
Things are getting? artificial suddenly,
Just give me simple pleasures if you?re gonna love me.

(instrumental solo section)

We can go and see a flick at the two-dollar theater, pass the movie section, please,
Or we can go out dancin? to a place where music?s so loud it brings me to my knees.
You can be insane and still be sensitive to pain, you can be alright,
I?m-a tellin? you if you live to be ninety-two you can rock and roll all night.

Simple pleasures like a casual drive make a simple man like me feel alive.
Simple pleasures of better days, you better love ?em now ?cause they?re fadin? away.
Simple pleasures like Memphis soul, good time boogie and rock and roll.
Things are getting? artificial suddenly,
Just give me simple pleasures if you?re gonna love me.

(instrumental break)

Simple pleasures can?t be better.
Simple pleasures can?t be better.
Ooooowoooowoooo.
