flowers on the wall lyrics – c.w. mccall

well, now, i been hearin’ you’re concerned about my happiness
but all a’ that thought you’re a-givin’ me is conscience, i guess
if i was walkin’ in your shoes i wouldn’t worry none
so you and your friends don’t worry ’bout me, i’m havin’ lots of fun

[chorus]
countin’ flowers on the wall
that don’t bother me at all
playin’ solitaire ’til dawn with a deck of fifty-one
smokin’ cigarettes and watchin’ captain kangaroo
now don’t tell me i’ve a-nothin’ to do

last night i dressed in tails pretendin’ i was on the town
as long as i can dream it’s hard to slow this cowboy down
so please don’t give a thought to me i’m really doin’ fine
and you can always find me here and havin’ quite a time

[chorus]
countin’ flowers on the wall
that don’t bother me at all
playin’ solitaire ’til dawn with a deck of fifty-one
smokin’ cigarettes and watchin’ captain kangaroo
now don’t tell me i’ve a-nothin’ to do

well, it’s good to see you, i must go, i know i look a fright
well, any ol’ way my eyes are not accustomed to this light
and my boots are not accustomed to this kind a’ street
so i must go back to my room and make my day complete

[chorus]
countin’ flowers on the wall
that don’t bother me at all
playin’ solitaire ’til dawn with a deck of fifty-one
smokin’ cigarettes and watchin’ captain kangaroo
now don’t tell me i’ve a-nothin’ to do
a-don’t tell me i’ve a-nothin’ to do
