None of My Business
(Henson Cargill)


Skip a rope, skip a rope
Oh, listen to the children
While they play
Now ain't it kind of funny
What children say
Skip a rope

Daddy hates mommy
Mommy hates dad
Last night you shoulda heard
The fight they had

Gave little sister
Another bad dream
She woke us all up
With a terrible scream

Skip a rope, skip a rope
Oh, listen to the children
While they play
Now ain't it kind of funny
What children say
Skip a rope

Cheat on your taxes
Don't be a fool
Now what was it they said
About a Golden Rule

Never mind the rules
Just play to win
And hate your neighbor
For the shade of his skin

Skip a rope, skip a rope
Oh, listen to the children
While they play
Now ain't it kind of funny
What children say
Skip a rope

Stab 'em in the back
That's the name of the game
And mommy and daddy
Are who's to blame

Skip a rope, skip a rope
Just listen to your children
While they play
It's really not funny
What the children say
Skip a rope, skip a rope
Skip a rope, skip a rope

Questa canzone è tutt'altro che una cazzata...

Parla di come spesso i bambini, che sono carte assorbenti di ciò che mamma e papà dicono e fanno, finiscano per utilizzare persino nei loro giochi frasi, argomenti ed azioni agghiaccianti propalati dagli adulti, dalla violenza coniugale, all'evasione fiscale al razzismo...

Dove vivono i mostri, non possono che crescere altri piccoli mostriciattoli...

Henson Cargill (1941-2007) è stato un countrysinger e "Skip a Rope" (1968) è stato il suo più grande successo.
