Braxton, Tamar - Simple Things Lyrics




When I woke up this mornin'
I seen that look on your face
So I made you some breakfast
Eggs and some bacon on your plate
Cause I wanna talk to you
Before you walk out the door
Cause I ain't about to walk around here
And watch you stressing no more

Baby
Think about all the times you've saved me
Baby let me be here for you
Appreciate all you do
But not to the point of losing you
Cause you're working, stressing
Hustling, guessing
About how you gon' pay all these bills
But I gotta be honest
That ain't even why I'm here with you

Cause I've got everything
I've ever wanted
The day I met you baby
Cause I don't really need
All the house, cars, clothes, rings
I don't need nothing else from you
But the simple things
The simple, simple things baby, oh

You wanna take me to dinner
But you look tired as hell
But we might as well stay at home
Cause we can even enjoy ourselve
Oh, and you ain't gotta buy me no gifts baby
Not even Chanel
Cause half of these chicks in Chanel baby
Be going through pure hell, oh!

Baby
Think about all the times you've saved me
Baby let me be here for you
Appreciate everything you do
But not to the point of losing you
Cause you're working, stressing
Hustling, guessing
About how you gonna pay all these damn bills
But I gotta be honest
That ain't even why I'm here with you

Cause I've got everything
I've ever wanted
The day I met you baby
Cause I don't really need
All the house, cars, clothes, rings
I don't need nothing else from you
But the simple things
The simple, simple things baby, oh

Now, don't misunderstand me
I love me a good man
Who love to take care of his good woman
But I don't think you need to go on out here
And kill yourself over
No car, no house, no jewelry
Because at the end of the day baby
While you chasing all that
I'm really chasing you
We got lights, we got food
We got a phone, we can talk to each other
Hell we even got FaceTime I can find out where you at
And honestly, we don't need none of that
As long as we got each other
Cause that's all we really need baby

All I really need
Oh baby, oh baby!
All I really want
Is the simple things
That's what I'm talking about baby, yeah...

    When I woke up this morning
    I sing that to your face
    So I made you some breakfast
    Eggs, and some beacon on your plate
    'Cause I wanna talk to you before you walk out the door
    'Cause I ain't about to walk round here
    And watch you stressing no more
    Baby think about other times you saved me
    Baby let me be here for you
    Appreciate all you do
    But not to the point of losing you
    'Cause you work it, stressing, hustling, guessing
    About how you gon' pay all these bills
    But I gotta be honest
    That I ain't even want here with you
    'Cause I'm not everything
    I don't want it to tell it to you baby
    'Cause I don't really need
    All the house, cars, clothes, rings
    I don't need nothing else from you
    But the simple things
    The simple, simple things, baby
    You wanna take me to dinner
    But look tired as hell
    But we might as well stay home
    'Cause we can't even enjoy ourselves
    You ain't gotta buy me no gifts baby
    Not even Channel
    'Cause half of these chicks in Channel, baby
    Be going up through the hell
    Oh baby think about other times you saved me
    Baby let me be here for you
    Appreciate all you do
    But not to the point of losing you
    'Cause you work it, stressing, hustling, guessing
    About how you gon' pay all these dam bills
    But I gotta be honest
    That I ain't even want here with you
    'Cause I'm not everything
    I don't want it to tell it to you baby
    'Cause I don't really need
    All the house, cars, clothes, rings
    I don't need nothing else from you
    But the simple things
    The simple, simple things, baby
    Now don't misunderstand me
    I love near me a good man
    Who loves to take care of his good woman
    But I don't think you need go out here and kill yourself over
    No car, no house, no jewelry
    Because at the end of the day baby
    While you chasing all that, I'm really chasing you
    We got lights, we got food, we got a phone, we can talk to each other
    Hell we even got FaceTime, I can find where you are
    And honestly we don't need none of that
    As long as we got each other
    'Cause that's all we really need baby

    Sexy Melons I know I'm late but for someone who doesn't like this song you sure had the nerve to click on the it. Interesting.

  75. Mitasia Roach

    She straight murdered this song. It kind of has an Etta James feel to it, to me!

    Casey Walker

    It's called an organ

    Hope4Me

    No, it's the feel which is mostly made up of the shuffle, amongst other things in the arrangement. They use organs in reggae, classical music, and classic rock, and none of those sound like this.

    Tonisha amos

    Mitasia Roach Me too!

    colsome miah

    I'd rathe go blind: etta

  76. Lasonya young
