What care I who makes the laws of a nation
Let those who will take care of it's right and wrongs.
Who care I who cares for the world's affairs
As long as I can sing it's popular songs?

Let me sing a sunny song with crazy words that roll along
And if my song can start you laughing I'm happy, happy.
Let me sing a sad refrain of broken hearts who loved in vain
And if my song can start you crying I'm happy.
Let me croon a low down blues that lifts you out of your seat. 
If my blues can reach your shoes and start you tapping your feet, I'm happy.
Let me sing of Dixie's charms, of cotton fields and Mammy's arms
And if my song can make you homesick, I'm happy.

Let me sing a sunny song with crazy words that roll along
And if my song can start you laughing I'm happy, oh happy.
I want to sing a sad refrain of broken hearts who loved in vain,
And if my song can start you crying I'm happy.
Oh let me croon a low-down blues that lifts you out of your seat.
If my blues can reach your shoes and start you tapping your feet, I'm happy.
I want to sing of Dixie's charms, of cotton fields and Mammy's arms,
And if my song can make you homesick, I'm happy.
