Simplicity Of A Man  ~ words and music by beth wimmer c2006
Verse - 
There is a man down in San Diego, married his true love 52 years ago
Last week at her grave they asked him to say what he could
His tears in the dirt he said "Roberta you done real good."
 
Chorus -
You gotta love the simplicity of a man, giving it all he can
you gotta love the simplicity of a man, a woman should understand
the simplicity of a man
 
Verse - 
A young philosopher spoke one million words a day
no subject escaped his say
the moment he felt the breath of his brand new baby girl
was his first experience of a profound loss for words
 
Chorus -
You gotta love the simplicity of a man, giving it all he can
gotta love the simplicity of a man, a woman should understand
the simplicity of a man
 
Verse - 
I read between the lines 'round your eyes to find your love
your words don't reveal what your body does
day in and out you're here by my side, no love spoken
but every night your body's your bond... unbroken
 
Chorus -
gotta love the simplicity of a man, giving me all he can
you gotta love the simplicity of a man, a woman should understand
and love the simplicity of a man, a woman should understand
the simplicity of a man... the simplicity of a man...
