Thank you Keith!

About “Keep It Simple (with Inge)”

Well, I wrote this song as a note to my wife (who makes lists from time to time). I thought it would be a cute little tune… I figured it might work just as well for a wife singing to her husband… So I sent it to Inge to let her have a go at it… And now it’s amazing.

…And hang around all the way to the end. You’ll be glad you did.

“Keep it Simple”

Trying to predict the coming years
Weighing all your hopes against your fears
You never thought you’d be so old so soon
So you sit down one afternoon

Take a sharpened pencil in your hand
Try to write down everything you have planned
Laying out a life of grand design
Can you do it all in time?

Keep it simple
Keep it simple

All you’ve ever wanted for yourself
All you need to do for someone else
If only you could find a way to clear your mind
You’d hear me whisper from behind

Keep it simple
Keep it simple

The song that stays with me through my day
The words I repeat along my way
The greatest lines I’ve ever heard
Don’t have too many words

Keep it simple (Only so many hours in the day)
Keep it simple (And you know what they say)
Keep it simple (About all work and no play)
Keep it simple

Forget about what’s coming next and turn around
Time to put the pencil down
So we’ve gotten so old so soon
Let’s waste away the afternoon

Keep it simple (You know what I have in mind)
Keep it simple (As a better way to pass the time)
Keep it simple (Don’t conceal that little smile)
Keep it simple (I’ll make it worth your while)

Keep it simple (Only so many hours in the day)
Keep it simple (And you know what they say)
Keep it simple (About all work and no play)
Keep it simple

Hey superstar! So glad to see this one posted on your page!… I’ll be finding some time in the coming weeks to record yet another version (with my vocals alongside yours), but I don’t think I could possibly top Willem’s!
