Lyrics

Sun comes up over the hill
And climbs in the kitchen window
Coffee on the stove
Six a.m. again

It’s the simple things you know
It’s the simple things you know
I can’t find a better way
Starting each and every day
With the simple things

Take the dog out for a walk
And climb up on the hill
Feel the morning mist a’lingering
Hear the chatter of the quail

It’s the simple things you know
It’s the simple things you know
I can’t find a better way
Living each and every day
From the simple things

Fresh laid eggs
Shells so thick and brown
Summer fruit so ripe its falling on the ground
I don’t think I ever want to go to town
For the simple things

Sun comes up over the hill
Climbs in the kitchen window
Coffee on the stove
Six a.m. again

It’s the simple things you know
It’s the simple things you know
It’s the simple things you know…
