I Need a Little More of This


I watched In the Good Old Summertime this evening and while Judy Garland was performing I Don't Care, I really got into it, hoping it might be contagious. I was wishing it in connection to my last three New Year's Resolutions to make that year the year I submit a manuscript somewhere. Something always gets in the way. Sure I could list a number of those somethings. But what it all boils down to is that I need a little, no a LOT more of this attitude:

They say I'm crazy
Got no sense
But I don't care
They may or may not mean offense
But I don't care
You see, I'm sort of independent
I am my own superintendent
And my star is on the ascendent
That's why I don't care

I don't care, I don't care
What they may think of me
I'm happy-go-lucky, they say that I'm plucky
Contented and carefree
I don't care I don't care
If I do get a mean and stony stare
If I'm not successful
It won't be distressful
Cause I don't care

A girl should know her etiquette
Alas, alack
Propriety demands we walk a narrow track
When fellas used to blink at me
I'd freeze 'em and they'd shrink at me
But now when fellas wink at me
I wink at them right back!

I don't care I don't care
If people frown on me
Perhaps it's the lone way
But I go my own way
That's my philosophy
I don't care I don't care
if he's clerk or just a millionaire
There's no doubt about it,
I'll sing and I'll shout it
Cause I don't care

Oh, I don't care, I don't care
When it comes to happiness,
I want my share
Don't try to rearrange me
There's nothing can change me
'cause I don't care!

I do so love Judy Garland. And there are still many of her movies I've yet to see.
