I Should Care

Writer(s): Sammy Cahn / Axel Stordahl / Paul Weston

I know I should pity me, but I don’t because, you see
I have loved and I have learned, and as far as I’m concerned
I should care, I should go around weeping
I should care, I should go without sleeping
Strangely enough I sleep well, ‘cept for a dream or two
But, then, I count my sheep well, funny how sheep can lull you to sleep, so
I should care, I should let it upset me
I should care, but it just doesn’t get me
Maybe I should find someone as lovely as you
But I should care, and I do

(Frank sang a short version of this live at the Hollywood Bowl in 1945. The first two lines might have been some sort of intro but Frank didn’t sing them here.)
