I Should CareWords & Music by Sammy Cahn, Axel Stordahl & Paul Weston
Recorded by Paul Weston Orchestra, 1945
A F#m F#m7 Dm Bm7-5 E7 I know I should pity me, but I don't because, you see, F#m F#m7 Fdim A I have loved and I have learned Bm7-5 E7 Fdim E7 And as far as I'm concerned, Bm7 E7 F#M7 Bm7 E7 AM7 I should care -- I should go around weeping; Em F#7 Bm7 Bm I should care -- I should go without sleeping. F#m Bm7-5 E7 FM7 Em7 AM7 F#m7 Strangely enough I sleep well, except for a dream or two; D#m7-5 C#7 F#m Am+7 But then, I count my sheep well-- B7 Bm7 E7 E+ Funny how sheep can lull you to sleep. So, Bm7-5 E7 AM7 Bm7 E7 AM7 I should care -- I should let it upset me; Em F#7 Bm7 Dm I should care -- but it just doesn't get me. F#m Bm Fdim(III) F#m F#m7 B7 Cdim Maybe I won't find someone as lovely as you, Bm7 E7 A Bm7 E7 But I should care, and I do. (Instrumental interlude -- first two lines of verse) Bm7 E7 AM7 Bm7 E7 AM7 Em F#7 Bm7 Dm F#m Bm Fdim(III) F#m F#m7 B7 Cdim Maybe I won't find someone as lovely as you, Bm7-5 E7 C#m7-5 F#7 I should care, I should care, Bm7-5 E7 A Gm AM7 I should care, and I do.
