lyrics

Well I work all day 'til I grow tired, cause I don't mind
Life don't seem much like life, unless you grind it
Way on back way way on back, livin' off the land yeah
Both bare hands and an aching back, was all they had then

(chorus)
Oh, my my, oh my my, I wish we could rewind it
To that simple way of life, how grandma described it

Good hard work fuels the mind, it makes you feel worth something
You get what you give, and if you're taking child, take only what you need
All you've got is your good name, you make the bed you lay in
If you ain't got something nice to say, then don't say nothing

(chorus)
Oh my my, oh my my, I wish we could realize that
We are livin' in paradise, how nature designed it

Oh my my, oh my my, I wish we could rewind it
To that simple way of life, how grandma described it

Well there's beauty in all honest things, the magic's in the making
If you want a better life, then change your way of livin'

(chorus)
Oh my my, oh my my, I wish we could rewind it
To that simple way of life, how grandpa described it

Oh my my, oh my my, I wish we could realize that
We are livin' in paradise, how nature designed it
