"It Don't mean a thing"

John King & Brian Baer

(*** chorus ***)

It don't mean a thing, it's just something to do;
My mind's filled with rage, guess I'm acting my age.
Tell me how about you?


I cut my hair weird to stand out in the crowd,
I play my music and I'm playing it loud,
Dad says I'm lazy, my friends say I'm crazy,
But it’s all about you.

The clothes I'm wearing don't have much style,
Don't have a job and my name is on file,
My life is a mess, but it's all good I guess.
Tell me what can I do?

(*** repeat chorus ***)

You say you're different and you got to rebel,
That's fine with me, 'cause it's my way as well.
I like it that way, and there's nothing to say,
If you’re liking it, too.

I'm having fun and that ain't so bad,
You were the best time that I ever had,
You see where I've been, don't want to fit in.
Tell me, how about you?

Oh, babe, you don't mean a thing,
You're just something to do;
My mind's filled with rage, guess I'm acting my age.
Tell me how about you!?

Walking the edge and crossing the line,
You'd like to know me but I ain't got the time,
I alienate, I've sealed my fate.
It’s just something I do.

Experience has been my teacher today,
I keep on looking for a quicker way,
It's got to be fast, 'cause I know I won't last.
I die a little each day...

(*** repeat chorus twice ***)
