Alt. Title Don't Worry About Me

Writers Rube Bloom, Ted Koehler

Genres Standard, Ballad

Recorded 1953

Lyrics DON'T WORRY ABOUT ME,
I'LL GET ALONG.
FORGET ABOUT ME,
BE HAPPY MY LOVE.
LET'S SAY
THAT OUR LITTLE SHOW
IS OVER
AND SO
THE STORY ENDS,
WHY NOT CALL IT A DAY,
THE SENSIBLE WAY
AND STILL BE FRIENDS.
LOOK OUT FOR YOURSELF,
SHOULD BE THE RULE.
GIVE YOUR HEART AND YOUR LOVE
TO WHOMEVER YOU LOVE,
DON'T BE A FOOL.
DARLING,
WHY SHOULD YOU CLING
TO SOME FOOLISH THING
THAT USED TO BE?
IF YOU CAN FORGET,
DON'T WORRY ABOUT ME!

Lyrics IT'S GONNA RAIN ANY MINUTE,
THERE'S NOT A STAR IN SIGHT
THINGS ARE MIGHTY SLOW,
I GUESS I'LL CLOSE UP SHOP
AND GO HOME TO JOE.
I KNOW
HE WON'T BE GLAD TO SEE ME
WITHOUT A PENNY TO THE GOOD,
BUT I'M NOT CARING MUCH
WHAT HAPPENS,
I DID THE BEST I COULD.

HE'S JUST GOOD FOR NOTHIN' JOE,
BUT OH, I LOVE HIM SO,
ID BE GOOD FOR NOTHIN' TOO,
I KNOW,
IF HED EVER LEAVE ME FLAT,
OH YES, I'M CERTAIN OF THAT.
FOLKS I KNOW CAN'T UNDERSTAND
WHY I MUST LOVE THAT MAN.
LORD, HE SENDS ME
LIKE NOBODY CAN,
NOW AIN'T A WOMAN
JUST LIKE THAT!
I WOULDN'T MIND
DOING WHAT I'M DOING,
I'D BEAT THESE STREETS
TILL MY FEET WERE SORE,
BUT WHEN IM TIRED
AND I GO HOME TO HIM,
INSTEAD OF SYMPATHY,
HE'S JUST AS MEAN AS CAN BE.


BUT THERE'S NOTHNG
I CAN DO
BECAUSE I LOVE THAT MAN SO,
I'D BE GOOD FOR NOTHIN' TOO,
I KNOW,
WITHOUT GOOD FOR NOTHIN' JOE.

Lyrics WHATCHA GONNA DO TOMORROW NIGHT,
DO THE TOWN
AND DO IT RIGHT,
HEY, WHATCHA SAY BABY,
HOWS ABOUT TOMORROW NIGHT?
THERE IS A DOUBLE FEATURE
AT THE STRAND
AND ITS A GOOD EXCUSE
TO HOLD YOUR HAND,
HEY, WHAT DO YOU SAY BABY,
HOWS ABOUT TOMORROW NIGHT?

AFTER THE SHOW
I KNOW
WE WILL GO FOR A SROLL.
AND THEN WE WILL WIND UP
SIPPING SODA
AT THE SUGAR BOWL.

IM TALKING LIKE A MILLIONAIRE,
I KNOW,
BUT WHEN I GO
I REALLY GO.
HEY, WHAT DO YOU SAY BABY,
HOWS ABOUT TOMRROW NIGHT?

Interlude:
HELLO MRS. DONAHUE,
THIS IS DOUGLAS,
HOW ARE YOU?
IM DOING PRETTY FAIR,
IS YOUR CHARMING DAUGHTER THERE?
WELL HELLO MARY,
WHAT DO YOU KNOW?
HAVE YOU HEARD
IM IN THE DOUGH?
IVE GOT A GREAT IDEA TODAY,
SO I CALLED YOU
RIGHT AWAY...
