 once upon a time

I didn’t do anything. Why should I?
Got nothing to do with me, has it.?
He’s asking for help, she’s asking for help.
What’s it to me? What can I do? Who cares anyway?
Shrug it all away; someone else will do it won’t they? 
It’s not my problem. I didn’t do anything
I look out for myself, don’t care about anyone else.
What’s anyone ever done for me? Nothing! 
So tell me. Give me one good reason why I should care.
Because you’re human? Tut, now we’re into mumbo jumbo.
I just don’t care. Anyway, what’s it to me? Go on, tell me.
They’re starving here; they’re dying there. Who the feck cares?
I’m out for number one and you know who that is, me.
I don’t care, you don’t care, they don’t care.
But, at the end of the day, when you need someone
Who’s gonna care about you?.
