by Lewis DeWitt (The Statler Brothers), 1965
I keep hearin' you're concerned about my happiness.
But all that thought you're givin' me is conscience, I guess.
If I were walkin' in your shoes, I wouldn't worry none.
While you and your friends are worryin' 'bout me,
I'm havin' lots of fun.
Countin' flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all,
Playin' solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one,
Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo -
Now don't tell me I've nothin' to do.
Last night I dressed in tails, pretended I was on the town.
As long as I can dream, it's hard to slow this swinger down.
So please don't give a thought to me, I'm really doin' fine.
You can always find me here, I'm havin' quite a time.
Well, it's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright.
Anyway me eyes are not accustomed to this light.
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete.
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete.
