C-G-AM-G-F-G-C
C-G-AM-G-F-D7-G

Apathy

It’s come over me

I don’t vote, don’t march, don’t care

I spend more time on my hair

 

DM-C-G (C)

I’m teetotaling on a news prohibition

I cancelled my New York Times subscription

I threw my Newsweeks in the sewer

Now I get my news from Jon Stewart

 

C-G-AM-G-F-G-C
C-G-AM-G-F –D7-G

Apathy

You know you want the same

But that’s the difference between you and me

I can live with myself when I’m lame

 

DM-C-G

You may think this song is intended to dis' you

That it’s tongue in cheek, and just satiric

But no no, I really don’t ever read or do shit

I only watch the news when I’m desperate for lyrics

 

C-G-AM-G-F-G-C
C-G-AM-G-F-D7 -G

Apathy

I know I should really care, But I don’t want to go on no tirade.

And for me, I feel like,

Isn’t that why those Senators get paid?

 

Bb-C-D 

The world’s a mess but I’m busy!

No sense in tryin’ hard or straining, no no no no,

Don’t wanna run around all in a tizzy

I save my energy….

…for complaining.
