I DON’T WANNA KNOW 
©2000 w/new words c.2014 Sally Fingerett, Green Fingers Music, BMI

I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know
Do I have to listen as on and on you go
Must you keep on yapping-you tabloid so and so
Feed it to the bad dogs, I don’t wanna know

Everybody’s yaking - everybody’s blogging
Everybody’s listening - they all want to know
Who’s been misbehaving, who’s been procreating
That's her secret business baby, I don't wanna know 
                       
CHORUS      

I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know
I don't wanna know, I don't wanna know

Did you hear who’s anorexic, did you hear who’s alcoholic
Did you hear who’s homophobic, even though he’s gay
So and so is breaking up, so and so is making up
Celebrities are cracking up - Who cares? I don't wanna know     

CHORUS

When I’m watching my TV, kicking back to let it be
Talking heads, make me mad, they feel good, that I feel bad

Just how would you do it, if every time you screwed up
They threw your face on TV and made a fool of you
People will be naughty, glass houses they get dirty
Frankly, mine is filthy….you don’t wanna know

CHORUS

You let the gossip mongers spin
Speculating on a whim
Rumors fly, in our face...with Fox News and Nancy Grace.

I can’t stand to hear it, read it, see it, feel it
Baby now you got me disgusted and afraid
When I ask you for the time
Don't tell me how the watch is made
They say the devil’s in the details
Take them with you when you go, I don’t wanna know

CHORUS
