What care I who makes the laws of a nation
Let those who will take care of its rights and wrongs
What care I who care for the world's affairs
As long as I can sing its popular songs

Let me sing a funny song
With crazy words that roll along
And if my song can start you laughing
I'm happy, so happy

Let me sing a sad refrain
Of broken hearts that loved in vain
And if my song can start you crying
I'm happy

Let me croon a low down blues
To lift you out of your seat
If my song can reach your shoes
And start you tapping your feet, I'm happy

Let me sing of Dixie's charms
Cotton fields and mammy's arms
And if my song can make you homesick
I'm happy, I'm happy

I don't want a seat on any big council
A ruler's power is not what I'm seeking for
Only let me feel that my songs appeal has reached your hearts
I'll not ask for anything more

Let me sing a funny song
With crazy words that roll along
And if my song can start you laughing
I'm happy, so happy

Let me sing a sad refrain
Of broken hearts that loved in vain
And if my song can start you crying
I'm happy

Let me croon a low down blues
To lift you out of your seat
If my song can reach your shoes
And start you tapping your feet, I'm happy

Let me sing of Dixie's charms
Cotton fields and mammy's arms
And if my song can make you homesick
I'm happy, I'm happy
