"Nobody Cares" is the seventh song of Act One of Groundhog Day.

Phil Connors joins Gus and Ralph's, Punxsutawney's local drunks, who complain about the monotony and repetitive nature of their lives, before the three of them steal a car and cause havoc.

LyricsEdit

[GUS]
I wake up hungover, I go to bed smashed
Like an alcoholic hamster on one of them little wheely things
Every evening, the same,
Every morning, the pain,
I start drinking at ten
And by noon I'm not feeling things
And nobody cares what I'm talking about

[RALPH]
Oh, shit, I just gone thrown up in my mouth

[GUS]
Just swallow it, man, just swallow it
Your opinions or ya vomit –
Either way, they don't want it

[GUS][RALPH]
And I think I had a point thereWhat's your point?
But the point is, it don't matter cos it'sWhat is your
Pointless having points anywayPointless having points anyway
Cos
Nobody cares what I sayNobody cares what I say
Nobody cares what I doNobody cares what I do
What's the point of bothering
If no one else is bothered?No one else is bothered
I was born in this townBorn in this town
And I'm gonna die here tooAnd I'm gonna die here too


[GUS & RALPH]
I wake with a headache
I take a piss
I often miss
I often get a little bit on the floor

I eat a piece of toast
That I found toasted
In the toaster
Then I goes-ta
Get my jacket by the rack by the back door

And then I get into my truck and drive a block
To Ralphie's shop, it's always shut

[GUS][RALPH]
I pick him up and drive us upHe picks me up and drives us up

[GUS & RALPH]
To Running Rock and shoot some cans
And crack some cans and shoot the breeze about
The weather or a sports team or a car
And after that, the bar

Nobody cares what I say

[GUS][RALPH]
Nobody cares what I doNobody cares what I do

[GUS]
What's the point of bothering

[GUS & RALPH]
If no one else is bothered?
I was born in this town
And I'm gonna die here too

[GUS, RALPH & PHIL CONNORS]
I wake with a headache I take a piss
I often miss I often get a little bit on the floor
I sometimes try to clean the mess
I makes from my mistakes
But for who's sake am I making all this effing effort for?
I wake up each

[GUS, RALPH, PHIL & COMPANY]
Morning to the same damn day
There seems to be jack shit that
I can do or say
I got no voice, I got no vote, I got no way
To change
A God damn thing

[GUS]
I think that's the pigs!

[PHIL]
Who gives a fig?

[GUS, RALPH, PHIL & COMPANY]
