Lyrics:
Bad news, go away
Call `round someday
In March or May
I can't be bothered now

My bonds and shares
May fall downstairs
Who cares, who cares
I'm dancing and
I can't be bothered now

I'm up among the stars
On earthly things I frown
I'm throwing off the bars
that held me down

I'll pay the piper
When times are riper
Just now, I shan't
Because you see I'm dancing and
I can't be bothered now

(bridge)

I'm up among the stars
On earthly things I frown
I'm throwing off the bars
that held me down

I'll pay the piper
When times are riper
Just now, I shan't
Because you see I'm dancing and
I can't be bothered now
