Well, now, I been hearin' you're concerned about my happiness
But all a' that thought you're a-givin' me is conscience, I guess
If I was walkin' in your shoes I wouldn't worry none
So you and your friends don't worry 'bout me, I'm havin' lots of fun

[Chorus]
Countin' flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playin' solitaire 'til dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
Now don't tell me I've a-nothin' to do

Last night I dressed in tails pretendin' I was on the town
As long as I can dream it's hard to slow this cowboy down
So please don't give a thought to me I'm really doin' fine
And you can always find me here and havin' quite a time

[Chorus]

Well, it's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
Well, any ol' way my eyes are not accustomed to this light
And my boots are not accustomed to this kind a' street
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete

[Chorus]

A-don't tell me I've a-nothin' to do
