Lyrics

Make it clear; I like simple so I see.
Simple things, simple gifts are best for me.
Put it up, put it up right in my face.
Turn it up, turn it up right in my way.
Gonna pair down more, more, more.
Gonna pair down more, for sure.
Gonna make it clear as day;
Please take that stuff away.
Gonna pair down more, more, more.
Gonna pair down more, for sure.
Free from complexity, this is the best for me.
Doing a simple dance…
Don’t weigh me down now!
Doing a simple dance…Uh, break it down now!
Keep it simple; keep it nimble.
When true simplicity is gained.
Piles of stuff, piles of stuff it does offend.
Strip it down, strip it down; so I can bend.
Flexible, to bow and bend, I’m not ashamed.
Moving free, a simple dance is free from strain.
Gonna pair down more, more, more.
Gonna pair down more, for sure.
Gonna make it clear as day;
Please take that stuff away.
Gonna pair down more, more, more.
Gonna pair down more, for sure.
Free from complexity, living with less and free.
Doing a simple dance…
Don’t weigh me down now!
Doing a simple dance…Uh, break it down now!
Keep it nimble.
Tis a gift to be simple; tis a gift to be free!
Oo, doing a simple dance, dance!
Oo, doing a simple dance, dance!
Oo, doing a simple dance, Ah-oo.
And then we find ourselves in a place just right.
Put it up, put it up right in my face.
Gonna pair down more, more, more.
Gonna pair down more, for sure.
Turn it up, turn it up right in my way.
Gonna make it clear as day;
Please take that stuff away.
Doing a simple dance.
Uh, break it down now.
