Statler Brothers: Flowers On The Wall

FLOWERS ON THE WALL
/Statler Brothers/

I keep hearing
You're concerned about my happiness
But all that thought
You're giving me is conscience, I guess
If I were walking in your shoes
I wouldn't worry none
While you and your friends are worrying 'bout me
I'm having lots of fun

[Chorus:]
Counting flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playing solitaire 'till dawn
With a deck of 51
Smoking cigarettes and watching
Captain Kangaroo
Now don't tell me
I've nothing to do

Last night I dressed in tails
Pretended I was on the town
As long as I can dream
It's hard to slow this swinger down
So please don't give a thought to me
I'm really doing fine
You can always find me here
And having quite a time

[Chorus]

It's good to see you, I must go
I know I look a fright
Anyway my eyes are not
Accustomed to this light
And my shoes are not accustomed
To this hard concrete
So I must go back to my room
And make my day complete

[Chorus]

Don't tell me
I've nothing to do
