The Lyrics

A tribute to the (mis)adventures of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie.
Feels so good to live in the luxury
There's no better feeling than this
Having all of the big money
We never thought we would have to see the other side
A thing that most people call
The old-fashioned Simple Life

We don't have a clue to what a Wal-Mart is
And don't put us back on a farm
We know what it's really like down in Arkansas
We won't go back to live a Simple Life

(Life!) The Simple Life (Life!)
That's not who we are, not the Simple Life
We'd rather be rich (Filthy Rich!)
With the greatest life (Life!)
It's who we both are, it's a better life

One of them is the daughter of Lionel
The other's a hotel heiress to the Hilton fortune
Then all too suddenly, they worked for the first time
Driving a pickup truck, living in a small town

And now they are back, to share their story with us
I'm glad at least it's not me
I'd rather be rich, never have to work
Cause they don't want to relive the Simple Life

(Life!) The Simple Life (Life!)
That's not who they are, not the Simple Life
They'd rather be rich (Filthy Rich!)
With the greatest life (Life!)
It's who they both are, it's a better life

Cause we know that it's better to have all this fame and fortune
(It's a better life)
And with all those riches, who would want to live a...(Simple Life)?
We're very lucky to come from two famous families
For all it's worth, we just got rich again!

(electric guitar solo)

The Simple Life (Life!), The Simple Life (Life!)
That's not who we are, not the Simple Life
We'd rather be rich (Filthy Rich!)
With the greatest life (Life!)
It's who we both are, it's a better life

The Simple Life (Life!), The Simple Life (Life!)
That's not who we are, not the Simple Life
We'd rather be rich (Filthy Rich!)
With the greatest life (Life!)
It's who we both are, it's a better life

The Simple Life (Life!), not the Simple life (Life!)
That's not who we are, not the Simple Life
We'd rather be rich (Filthy Rich!)
With the greatest life (Life!)
It's who we both are...
