These simple things

The flowers of spring, birds and bees and all those things
Hot coffee and fresh bread, these words in my head
The sun's last red rays, and long summer days
With the sound of rain, I'm happy again

Oh these simple things, and my bell rings
And I must say, I'm happy that way

Oh these simple things, and my bell rings
And I must say, I'm happy that way

These simple things

The flowers of spring, birds and bees and all those things
Hot coffee and fresh bread, these words in my head
The sun's last red rays, and long summer days
With the sound of rain, I'm happy again

Chorus (x2):
Oh these simple things, and my bell rings
And I must say, I'm happy that way

A moment of peace, and winter's release
Birds on the wing, a new song to sing
How the waves reach, for a long sandy beach
And the light of your lamp, I can see from my camp

Chorus (x2):
Oh these simple things, and my bell rings
And I must say, I'm happy that way

Your key in the door, together once more
These simple things, and my bell rings and rings and rings

Chorus (x2):
Oh these simple things, and my bell rings
And I must say, I'm happy that way
