Don't worry 'bout me, I'll get along

Forget about me, be happy my love

Let's say that our little show is over and so the story ends

Why not call it a day the sensible way, and still be friends?

 

"Look out for yourself" should always be the rule

Give your heart and your love to whomever you love, don't you be a fool

Darling, why stop to cling to some fading thing that used to be?

If you can't forget, don't you worry 'bout me

 

<instrumental-first two lines of second verse>

Baby, why should you cling to some fading thing that used to be?

If you can't forget, don't you worry 'bout me
