  • I get tired and upset
    And I'm trying to care a little less
    When I Google I only get depressed
    I was taught to dodge those issues I was told
    Don't worry
    'Cause no doubt
    There's always something to cry about
    When your stuck in an angry crowd
    They don't think what they say before they open their mouth

    You gotta

    Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
    And bury them beneath the sea
    I don't care what the people may say
    What the people may say about me
    Pack Up your troubles get your old grin back
    Don't worry 'bout the cavalry
    I don't care what the whisperers say
    'Cause they whisper too loud for me

    Hot topic
    Maybe I should drop it
    It's a touchy subject
    And I like to tiptoe 'round the ship going down
    We got a penny but no pounds
    So if your business is running out
    It's not business to talk about
    But they don't think what they say before they open their mouth

    You gotta

    Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
    And bury them beneath the sea
    I don't care what the people may say
    What the people may say about me
    Pack up your troubles get your old grin back
    Don't worry 'bout the cavalry
    I don't care what the whisperers say
    'Cause they whisper too loud for me

    Don't worry 'bout the cavalry
    I don't care what the whisperers say

    Yeah

    Pack up, pack up, pack up, pack up (ah)
    Pack up, pack up, pack up, pack up (yeah)
    Pack up, pack up, pack up, pack up (yeah)
