ABOUT Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me
Don’t Worry ‘Bout Me is a beautiful song about the loss of love. The song was introduced in the Cotton Club Parade – World’s Fair Edition.

Lyrics

Don’t worry ’bout me
I’ll get along
Forget about me
Be happy my love

Let’s say that our little show is over
And so the story ends
Why not call it a day, the sensible way
And still be friends

Look out for yourself
Should be the rule
Give your heart and your love, to whomever you love
Don’t be a fool

Darling why stop to cling, to some fading thing
That used to be
If you can forget
Don’t you worry ’bout me
