I Shouldn't Care (J'M'en Fous Pas Mal)

This song is by Édith Piaf and appears on the album La vie en rose / Édith Piaf Sings in English (1956).

I shouldn't care
What if he tells me that we're through
I shouldn't care
I'll get along, I always do
Why should I care
Why beat my head against the wall
I shouldn't care at all

This was supposed to be clever
Carefree and carelessly wild
Now when he tells me it's over
I fall in love like a child

I didn't care
Until the flame began to cool
I didn't care
But now I'm falling like a fool
It isn't fair
And I keep saying as I fall
I shouldn't care at all

I have to work for a living
I'm no Marie-Antoinette
People who work for a living
Can't run away to forget

So here I am
Not even dreams left on my shelf
How near I am
To going mad here by myself
Why did I dare
Right from the start, I swear I knew
I shouldn't care, but I do
