about

I wrote this tune at the height of the madness that was the 2016 election year, almost as a joke...and a way to just cope with the insanity and ugliness that it brought out in everyone; especially with regard to online bullying...people feeling emboldened behind the anonymity of typing at a keyboard. I just wanted everyone to mind their own business and worry about their own selves...which, in ukulele speak...turned into Mind Your Business. It originally started out as a swing tune but then I had an idea to buy a small overdrive pedal for the ukulele and turned it into this 1950s punk rock tinted thing...mostly because it made us all laugh...and it stuck. Another easy one to arrange, and when we brought the ridiculously talented Keith Giosa into the studio, he got the brilliant idea to add a little Jerry Lee Lewis piano and Philly soul organ...on the car ride over...and that was just the double cherry on top of the sundae sauce! ~ Jenny

lyrics

Mind your business, just mind your business
Mind your business
Why don't you worry 'bout yourself, instead of everybody else
We're all fine, whoa oh, and you're out of your mind

Don't tell me what to do what to do
You don't know what I'm going through
And don't tell me how to feel or what's real
That's not your deal, no no no

I'm gonna say this nice and slow
So you can know
Just walk away
And you have a nice day

Mind your business, just mind your business
Mind your business
Why don't you worry 'bout yourself, instead of everybody else
We're all fine, whoa oh, and you're out of your mind

Stop trying to undermine and define
Stop feeding me the same old line
I'm perfectly aware, I don't care
You can take it all elsewhere

We're gonna do this one more time
With pantomime
Just walk away
And you have a nice day

Mind your business, just mind your business
Mind your business
Why don't you worry 'bout yourself, instead of everybody else
We're all fine, whoa oh, and you're out of your mind

You're incorrect, sir
And not just politically
A walking train wreck, sir, oh
Mr. Personality

Why don't you give it a rest now
No one's impressed anyhow
Whoa oh oh oh

Mind your business, just mind your business...
Mind your business...
Why don't you worry 'bout yourself...

Why don't you worry 'bout yourself
Instead of everybody else
We're all fine, whoa oh
You crossed the line, no no no
It's time for you to go
'Cause you're out of your mind
Mind your business, ooh

Yeah
