First Verse - Other Verses follow the same pattern.
[G]I keep hearin' you're concerned a[Em]bout my happiness
But [A7]all that thought you've given me is [D]conscience I guess
If [G]I were walkin' in your shoes, I [Em]wouldn't worry none
While [A7]you and your friends are worryin' 'bout me, I'm [D]havin' lots of fun
Countin' [Em]flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all
Playin' [Em]solitaire 'til dawn, with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin' [C]cigarettes and watchin' "Captain Kangaroo"
Now don't tell [D]me I've nothin' to do
Last night I dressed in tails, pretended I was on the town
As long as I can dream it's hard to slow this swinger down
So please don't give a thought to me, I'm really doin' fine
You can always find me here and havin' quite a time
It's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
Anyway, my eyes are not accustomed to this light
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete
Don't tell me I've nothin' to do
