Michael Andrew Itzoe

Never Mind

From the Michael Andrew album Michael Andrew
Words and music by Michael Andrew Itzoe

Just a "pissed-off-leave-me-alone-song" that I knocked out one afternoon for fun. The main guitar riff was improvised, and the piano was a blast. The words came about two months later for no real particular reason, probably because the music is so obnoxious, the lyrics had to be, too.

Lyrics

I don't need your sympathy
And I don't need your bleeding heart
I don't need sharks tearing me apart
I can manage fine on my own
It's the only way I've ever known

(Never mind) Don't bother me
(Never mind) Just let me be
(Never mind) Can't I make you see
(Never mind) Don't bother me

I don't need your charity
And I don't need crocodile tears
I don't need you adding to my fears
I can find my way all alone
It's the only way I've ever known

I would rather say I fought the good fight
Whether I win or lose

It don't mean a thing if I'm wrong or right
I would rather say I fought the good fight
Whether I win or lose
