A tug on your arm, a kiss on the cheek,
A walk through the garden with the wind on your face,
The smell of home cooking and a newborn baby's cry;
Sometimes it's so easy to forget:
Don't let the simple things,
the simple things in life pass you by.

Mom is rocking Robert and the girls under the tree,
Excitement fills the air with the presents to your knees;
But the greatest gifts of Christmas
are the smiles under that tree,
'Cause they light up the room for all to see.

A tug on your arm, a kiss on the cheek,
A walk through the garden with the wind on your face,
The smell of home cooking and a newborn baby's cry;
Sometimes it's so easy to forget:
Don't let the simple things,
the simple things in life pass you by.

The busy world we live in with its plan for greater things,
We fill in every minute searching for tomorrow's dreams;
But stop and smell the roses,
be surprised at what you see,
'Cause we often miss the forest from the trees.

A tug on your arm, a kiss on the cheek,
A walk through the garden with the wind on your face,
The smell of home cooking and a newborn baby's cry;
Sometimes it's so easy to forget:
Don't let the simple things,
the simple things in life pass you by.
