8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
It's no surprise, I realize,
That you are leaving me. But still I smile,  You see.
You've played your game, You're all to blame.
So before you start to go, I would like to let you know.
I Don't Care, If you go away,
I Don't Care, If you go to stay.
I Don't Care if you sigh, I Dont Care if you cry,
I Don't Care, And why should I?
I Don't Care, If you leave me flat,
I Don't Care, Any more than that.
Why should I feel so blue, When you've been so untrue?
For there's many better than you, So why should I care.
