about

my mom played me this song one morning when i was going through a rough patch, and it really described what i was going through at the time. it was written over forty years ago, but it's so relatable even now - the feeling of not necessarily caring about yourself, but understanding that the world moves on without you, and having to mold to that. it's a simple arrangement, but it's going to be part of a covers ep that i'm putting out within the next month. enjoy :)

lyrics

don't care if the sun don't shine,
but it better or people will wonder
don't mind if it ever quits raining,
'cept the kids are scared of the thunder

say sour grapes, you can laugh and stare
say sour grapes, and i don't care

couldn't care less if i didn't have a friend
except people would say i was crazy
don't need to work, 'cuz i don't need money
'cept the same folks would say i was lazy

say sour grapes, you can laugh and stare
say sour grapes, and i don't care

i don't care if she never comes back
was gonna leave her anyway
and all the good times that we shared
don't mean a thing today

say sour grapes, you can laugh and stare
say sour grapes, and i don't care
