       Dm7       G7           Dm7      G7
There once was a boy named Pierre
    Dm7        G7      Dm7           G7
who only would say, "I don't care!"
Gm7      C7       Fmaj7              Bbmaj7
Read his story by friend, for you'll find
       Fmaj7      Bbmaj7   Dm7    G7     C7sus       Gm7         C7
at the end that a suitable moral      lies    there

F   F/E Bbmaj7     F/C
One day his mother said
       F    F/E    Bbmaj7  F/C
when Pierre climbed out of bed,
      Em7    A7        Dm7
"Good morning, darling boy,
G7         C7sus      Gm7
you are my only joy."
   C7                 Fmaj7
Pierre said, "I don't care!"

"What would you like to eat?"
    "I don't care!"
"Some lovely cream of wheat?"
    "I don't care!"
Bbmaj7     [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]      F
"Don't sit backwards on your chair."

"I don't care!"
Bbmaj7   [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]  F
"Or pour syrup on your hair."
Em7      A7
"I don't care!"
Dm                     A/C#
"You are acting like a clown."

"I don't care!"
Dm7                  G7
And we have to go to town."

"I don't care!"
Gm7             [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]       Fmaj7
     "Don't you want to come, my dear?"

"I don't care!"
Bbmaj7          [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]     F
     "Would you rather stay right here?"

"I don't care!"

   Dm7     G7     Dm7
So his mother
G7        C7sus     Gm7        C7
left him there.

    Em7     A7    Em7          A7
His father said, "Get off your head
   Dm               G7
or I will march you up to bed!"
   Gm7      [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]          Fmaj7
Pierre said,        "I don't care!"
Bbmaj7    Fmaj7   Em7   A7

Dm                            A/C#
"I would think that you could see..."

("I don't care!")
Dm                            C7sus
"your head is where your feet should be!"
("I don't care!")
Gm7          [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]    Fmaj7
"If you keep standing upside down..."

("I don't care!")

"we'll never ever get to town."
Em7       A7

Dm                       G7sus
"I'd let you fold the folding chair."

("I don't care!")

       Dm7 G7     Dm7
So his parents
G7           Dm7
    left him there.
G7       Dm7    G7       C
    They didn't take him anywhere.
Cmaj7      Fmaj7       Cmaj7       Fmaj7

Am                  D7
Now, as the night began to fall
Am                D7
    a hungry lion paid a call.
   Dm7           G7
He looked Pierre right in the eye
    Dm7            G7
and asked him - if he'd like to die.

And Pierre said,
[ch]C7sus/F[/ch]      Fmaj7
    "I don't care!"

Bbmaj7    Fmaj7    Em7  A7
Dm                        A/C#
"I can eat you, don't you see?"

("I don't care!")
Dm                      G7sus
"And you will be inside of me."
("I don't care!")
Gm7              [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]    Fmaj7
    "Then you'll never have to bother..."

("I don't care!")
Bbmaj7      [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]    Fmaj7
    "With a mother and a father."
Em7       A7
("I don't care!")
Dm                        A/C#
    "Is that all you have to say?"

("I don't care!")
Dm                        G7sus
    "Then I'll eat you if I may."

("I son't care!")

       Dm7  G7
So the li - on
G7    C
ate Pierre.

  C7sus          C
Arriving home at six o'clock
    [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]       C
his parents had a dreadful shock!
     Am7            D7
They found the lion sick in bed
    Am7              D7
and cried "Pierre is surely dead!"
     Bm7             E7
They pulled the lion by the hair.
     C#m7             F#7
They hit him with the folding chair.
    Dm7    [ch]Dm7/F[/ch]   G7
His mother asked, "Where is Pierre?"
        Gm7             [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]
And the lion answered,
"I don't care!"
Bbmaj7    Fmaj7

His father said,
G7               [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]    Gm7    [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]
    "Pierre's in there!"

C7       F          F/A  Bbmaj7
    They rushed the lion into town.
    F     F/A            Bbmaj7
The doctor     shook him up and down.
    Em7      A7   Dm
And when the lion gave a roar
G7    Gm7       [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]      Fmaj7     Em7    A7
    Pierre fell out upon the floor.

Dm                     A/C#
He rubbed his eyes and     scratched hiS head
Dm                         G7
    and laughed because he wasn't dead.
[ch]C7sus/F[/ch]              F
His mother cried and held him tight.
    Bbmaj7 [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]         F            Em7    A7
His father asked, "Are you all right?"

Dm                     A/C#
Pierre said "I amd feeling fine,
       F/C                         G7/B
please     take me home, it's half past nine."
    Bbmaj7  [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]   F
The lion    said, "If you would care
   Bbmaj7   [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]
to climb on me I'll take you there."

     Gm7      F/C         Gm7      Fmaj7
Then everyone looked at Pierre who shouted,
"Yes indeed I care!"
    Gm7            [ch]C7sus/F[/ch]
The lion took them home to rest
    F              Dm7
and stayed on as a weekend guest.
    Gm7        C7sus  C7  Fmaj7
The moral of Pierre   is  care!
