Does anyone know the song that had lines such as, "Does Michael Jordan gamble on golf, I don't care. Liz Taylor's getting married and Elvis is dying, I don't care. O. J. Simpson, 24 hours a day, I don't care. Oprah is a size 3, I don't care. Who sang it? Thanks!!!

Copied from a blog:

Words & Music by John McCutcheon

Where did it come from, this love of the lurid?
When did reality just get too tame?
From the Washington Post to the Weekly World News
It seems nobody has any shame;
But when gossip abounds, I have recently found
A remedy when I despair:
To this junk that I see I respond with ennui
And say I really don't care.

I don't care.
I don't care.

Who shot JR? Is Patty Hearst lying?
I don't care.
Liz Taylor is marrying. Elvis is dying.
I don't care.

I don't care.
I don't care.
Let the rich and the glamorous ruin their lives
Going through fortunes and treatments and wives,
And poor Donald Trump, he just barely survives,
But I don't care.

Rosanne & Tom, they'll not be a pair again,
Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan;
Does Michael Jordan gamble on golf?
Why does Hillary Clinton tick Rush Limbaugh off?

I don't care.
I don't care.
Though the National Enquirer says that it's so,
For their lies and distortions they're paying good dough;
But there are some things enquiring minds don't need to know.
I don't care.

Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie.
They me that Oprah can wear a size 3.
There's a piece of John Bobbitt right here on display,
And there's OJ on twenty four hours a day.

I don't care.
I don't care.
Though your troubles are mounting and you work like a drone,
It's more fun to watch than to live on your own.
Do you think Princess Di made those calls on her phone?

I don't care.
I don't care.
I really, really, really, really, really don't care.
It's the same old sad story the whole world around:
We build up our heroes wherever they're found,
Then spend the rest of their lives tearing them down.
I don't care.

This is a song that cries out for updating.

I think I've heard him do an updated version in person, but I don't think he's recorded it. Good song, no?
Did I tell you John McCutcheon is from Wisconsin?
