The Statler Flowers on the Wall lyrics

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 about me, I'm having lots of fun

 

Counting flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all

Playing solitaire 'til dawn with a deck of fifty one

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

 

Counting flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all

Playing solitaire 'til dawn with a deck of fifty one

Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo

Now don't tell me I've nothing to do

 

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

 

Counting flowers on the wall, that don't bother me at all

Playing solitaire 'til dawn with a deck of fifty one

Smoking cigarettes and watching Captain Kangaroo

Now don't tell me I've nothing to do

Don't tell me I've nothing to do
