Folks are blessed who make the best of everyday living by their own Philosophy everyone who needs the sun must find a 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.

A cottage small is all I'm after, Not one that's spacious and wide. A House that rings with joy and laughter with 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; I like the simple life Life Could be thrillin' with one whose willin' To be a farmers wife it's calling Me pappy sure make(s) me happy Give me the simple life.
