I crave for the simpler life

When fuel was not a worry

And no one was in a hurry

 

I crave for the simpler life

When money was not a worry

And every day seemed sunny

 

I crave for the simpler life

When food did not come in a can

And calories was not a concern

 

I crave for the simpler life

When the Courts were just

And in them we had trust

 

I crave for the simpler life

When life as a child was fun

And no child had to hold a gun

 

I crave for the simpler life

When telephones were stuck to the wall

And time spent with family was a ball

 

I crave for simpler life

When the truth was worth more than gold

And dignities would not be bought or sold

 

I crave for the simpler life

When a man’s worth was in his deeds

And not by the size of his proceeds

 

I crave for simpler life

When life was simpler

And everything else was so simple
