Lyrics

Much More Than That (Millie Glaser/Nita Hope)
I got a chair, I got a light, it burns real bright
I can sit and I can read almost any time I want
I got a car that won?t run so I walk instead of ride
And I?m lookin? pretty good from all this exercise

(chorus)
Oh, I don?t need much more than that,
Don?t need much more than that
Oh, I don?t need much more than that
Don?t need much more that

Got the sun on my face, got the wind at my back
And I like the moon and stars in the inky black
I ain?t got no mansion cuz baby, I ain?t got scratch
And I like my little house off the beaten path

(chorus)

You?d be surprised how little you can live on
When you finally stop yourself from tryin?
To live a life you can?t afford.
If you give it up, you just might find more.

(chorus)

Today I?ll sit on my porch, I?ll watch the world go by
I?ll hang out with my friends and maybe have some o? dat wine
I no longer rush; I got plenty of time
I do a whole lot more laughin? than I ever did cry

(chorus)
