Don't Worry 'Bout Me

by Rube Bloom and Ted Koehler   Printer-friendly version of this lyric

Don't worry 'bout me
I'll get along
Forget about me
Just 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
That should be the rule
Give your heart and your love
To whomever you love
Darlin' don't be a fool

Why do we cling to this old faded thing
That used to be
So if you can forget
Then don't worry 'bout me

Why should we cling to some old faded thing
That used to be
So if you can forget
Then you don't worry 'bout me

Recently heard Jon's version of "Don't Worry 'Bout Me" on Seriusly Sinatra and was KNOCKED OUT by the artistry. Didn't realize Joni had covered some songs; nice to discover. And this song from 1939 is timeless in its depth and truth.
