Music Trivia -> Same Title, Different Song -> Simple Man

There's nothing wrong with that of course, but it can be confusing if you're trying to sort out what song is a cover of another song. This section lists songs with identical titles, but different lyrics. To help us keep track of which songs are which, the first two lines of each unique song are listed.

"Simple Man"
