When I'm all through
If I haven't been
What they think I should be
If the total isn't high enough
When they figure me

When I grow old
If there's no gray
From worry in my hair
What do I care
What do I care

What do I care
Just as long as you
Were mine a little while
When the road was long and weary
You gave me a few good miles

What do I care if I miss
A goal because I make a slip
I'll still be satisfied because
I tasted your sweet lips

What do I care
If I never have much money
And sometimes my table
Looks a little bare

Anything that I may miss is
Made up for each time we kiss
You love me and I love you
So what do I care

What do I care
Just as long as you
Were mine a little while
When the road was long and weary
You gave me a few good miles

What do I care if I miss
A goal because I make a slip
I'll still be satisfied because
I tasted your sweet lips

What do I care
If I never have much money
And sometimes my table
Looks a little bare

Anything that I may miss is
Made up for each time we kiss
You love me and I love you
So what do I care
