[verse]
       E
If you love the life you live then you'll get a lot more done
                                        B
Be more inclined to take the reins than turn away and run
     E                           A
It's very rare it seems to get a lifetime guarantee
        E                             B
So I suppose self satisfaction be the key
   E
My father is a wealthy, self made man
                                          B
But his wealth does not consist of riches or acres of land and
   A                        E
Instead he has a family who are his biggest fans
                                        B
That's something that I one day hope to have


[chorus]
        A
So I'll cherish the simple things
    E
The easy took for granted things
     B                                 E
Like going round my Mum's house for my tea
    A
And argue with my sister
     E
Only God knows how I missed her
         B                                   E
It's the simple things that mean the most to me


[verse]
              E
Argh, he gets up each day at five starts the car and makes the drive
Shutters up, starts the fryers
           B
Serves out food to all the buyers
       E
In the town as they stand there in the same old line
A
Get there every day at the same old time
        E
No, you never hear him grumble and groan
                  B
Cause they're the people in the line that he built it on


[chorus]
              A
And like me he cherished the simple things
    E
The easy took for granted things
     B                                   E
Like going round his Mum's house for his tea
    A
And argue with his sister
     E
Only God knows how he missed her
          B                                      E
It's the simple things that mean the most.... to him
