Uploaded .

We were around the coffee table on Thursday night and dusted this one off from my 2014 archive. Greg Connor and Mark Lofgren pitching in on vocals and guitars….

I like this 2017 version….

They Don’t Matter To Me

Some fools don’t know jack
Some fools need to get off my back
Some fools should get no slack
They don’t matter to me
They don’t matter to me

Some fools have no class
Some fools are snakes in the grass
Some fools can kiss my ass
They don’t matter to me
They don’t matter to me

No they don’t matter to me
No they don’t matter to me
No they don’t matter to me

Some fools try to push me down
Some fools want to see me drown
Some fools need to make me frown
They don’t matter to me
They don’t matter to me

Old fools don’t control my life
Old fools cut my soul like a knife
I’m not some old fools wife
They don’t matter to me
They don’t matter to me

No they don’t matter to me
No they don’t matter to me
No they don’t matter to me

Some fools don’t know jack
Some fools need to get off my back
Some fools should get no slack
They don’t matter to me
They don’t matter to me

No they don’t matter to me
No they don’t matter to me
No they don’t matter to me

Nice song, Colleen! Thank you for taking the time to (re-?)record it and post it. :) If you don't mind my saying so, I kinda thought the lyric "Old fools cut my soul like a knife" might sound better -- maybe -- as "Old souls cut this fool like a knife." But i don't really know the story behind how you came to write each of these lines. Moreover, i kinda felt maybe more of the lines could do that sort of switcheroo with the meaning/intent throughout the song, but just didn't feel comfortable re-writing someone else's heartfelt lyrics, LOL !! Hope you don't take that notion the wrong way; i meant it with the best of intentions. (Like a lot of song lyrics they can at first appear rather plain and lifeless on a stark, silent page -- but once the music started i was pleasantly surprised by how well it all played out! Heh, heh.. Then again, i *always* enjoy hearing your voice!! :-)
