Have you noticed how
this old world is changing more than ever now
life needs rearranging.
It could be heavenly if we'd all remember this.
The simple things in life
are a-round you ev-'rywhere right outside your door
why keep reaching for
Another day is here
there is happiness to share, look outside your door
and stop reaching for the moon.
There's life again in lover's lane and that's a very good sign.
We're on the track to welcome back a bit of "Auld Lang Syne"
That "Hello neighbor" smile
will be coming back in style
so will wedding rings
and the simple things in life.
