By Tom Petty and David A. Stewart

We got a man on the moon (It ain't nothin' to me)
We got more comin' soon (It ain't nothin' to me)
Got natives in New Guinea with gold in their teeth
Might mean somethin' to you
It ain't nothin' to me

Chorus
But when you dance I can go right with you
Yeah when you dance I just go right with you

We got smilin' politicians
Got songs from rich musicians
Called Tokyo long distance and the queen came for tea
Might mean somethin' to you
It ain't nothin' to me

(Repeat Chorus)

I got a dog on my leg
I'm walking on eggs
Missionaries walking backwards
Touch 'em and they bleed
Might mean somethin' to you
It ain't nothin' to me
