Bad news go 'way,
Call round some day,
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!
