Sittin' on Top of the World

You might think I care
That you left me. Believe me,
I can't be bothered.

This is a blues chestnut from the Mississippi Sheiks, recorded for the first time in 1930. It's about a guy who can't be bothered that his girlfriend left him. Why

1. Can get a woman as quickly as she can get a man.
2. He's not the begging kind so he won't ask for her back.
3. He's not into worrying or craving in vain.
4. He has plenty of work to do anyway.
