#31 Baby I don’t care

#31 Baby I don’t care – Transvision Vamp

Probably the most well known of the (not that many) hits of Wendy James & Co. – a sort of post-punk / poppy / let’s try and make some money on the back of Debby Harry sort of (definitely lightweight) band, that briefly held the attention of the TOTP watching sector of the UK public.

“Baby I don’t Care” was written by Nick Christian Sayer (who co-founded the band with Ms James) and was the 1st single from the 2nd  – album (Velveteen). It was later covered by someone called Jennifer Ellinson but I’ve no idea who she was (or still is).

Lyrics

Well you can give me all your love
And anything else you got too
But don’t pay it any mind
If it seems like I’m acting cool
Well you can dress me in your mirror
Give me kisses forever and a day yeah
But there’s just one thing
You don’t have to say
You don’t have to say you love me
And you don’t have to say any prayers
No you don’t have to say you love me
Baby it’s alright
Cos honey I don’t care
Oh baby I don’t care
Oh honey I don’t care
Oh honey I don’t care
Well you can turns the lights down low
Somethings are better that way
And you can tell me all your stories
But please spare me the plays
Cos you don’t have to say you love me
And you don’t have to save any tears
No you don’t have to say you love me
Baby it’s alright
Cos honey I don’t care
Oh honey I don’t care
Oh baby I don’t care
Oh honey I don’t care
Deep in your eyes
I see your thoughts
I know you want me
Sometimes it hurts
But you know that some things
Are best left never said
Cos you don’t have to say you love me
And you don’t have to say you care
No you don’t have to say you love me
Baby it’s alright
Cos honey I don’t care
Oh when I tell you baby
I don’t care
Oh baby please believe me
I don’t care
Oh when I tell you baby
I don’t care
Oh baby please believe me
I don’t care
Oh baby please believe me
Don’t you see that I don’t care
I don’t care
Oh honey I don’t care
You know, you know that I don’t care
You know, you know
That you don’t have to say you love me
And you don’t have to say you care
No you don’t have to say you love me
Baby it’s alright, oh honey it’s alright
Oh baby I don’t care
