#20 / I Don't Care #3

The advantages of an "I don't care" philosophy may be found mainly at the personal level. Click on the image, or right here, to get Judy Garland's take.

When someone you love cuts off all contact, when you don't get that dream job for which you are totally qualified, when you come down with cancer, or have similar experiences, Judy may well have some good advice, though I'm not completely clear whether she's a singing about Buddhist "non-attachment" or not!

I Don't Care

They say I'm crazy

Got no sense

But I don't care

They may or may not mean offense

But I don't care

You see, I'm sort of independent

I am my own superintendent

And my star is on the ascendant

That's why I don't care

I don't care, I don't care

What they may think of me

I'm happy-go-lucky, they say that I'm plucky

Contented and carefree

I don't care I don't care

If I do get a mean and stony stare

If I'm not successful

It won't be distressful

Cause I don't care

A girl should know her etiquette

Alas, alack

Propriety demands we walk a narrow track

When fellas used to blink at me

I'd freeze 'em and they'd shrink at me

But now when fellas wink at me

I wink at them right back!

I don't care I don't care

If people frown on me

Perhaps it's the lone way

But I go my own way

That's my philosophy

I don't care I don't care

if he's clerk or just a millionaire

There's no doubt about it,

I'll sing and I'll shout it

Cause I don't care

Oh, I don't care, I don't care

When it comes to happiness,

I want my share

Don't try to rearrange me

There's nothing can change me

'cause I don't care!
