Nothing Bad Ever Happens – Oingo Boingo

Nothing bad ever happens to me
Why should I care?

A man broke into my neighborhood
He threatened the family with a loaded gun
He tied them all up and beat ’em real good
He took everything and he got away clean
And I can’t believe that anyone would
Wanna do such a terrible thing
But why should I care?

Did ya hear about Fred, he’s unemployed
They threw him away like a useless toy
He went down the drain after 20 long years
No warning, no pension and nobody’s tears
And I can’t believe that anyone would
Wanna do such a terrible thing
But why should I care?
Why should I care?

Every time I look around this place
I see them scream but I hear no sound
And the terrible things happen down the road
To someone else that I don’t even know

CHORUS
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Why should I care?

Have you heard about the Joneses, my, my, my
It happened so quick and no one knows why
