Don't Bother None is a song from Cowboy Bebop, performed by the Seatbelts, and sung by Mai Yamane. It is featured on the album No Disc, and an extended version is featured on the Cowboy Bebop Boxed Set. It is one of the few songs sung entirely in English by Yamane.

The song featured as Spike Spiegel went into a bathroom where Asimov Solensan was. Then, later as the ISSP gathered at the Tijuana Astral Gate and as the Three Old Men played cards at Denis Bar.[1] The song also featured as Spike followed Giraffe out of a blues bar. It was an instrumentalized version.[2]

The extended version, Don't Bother None (Long Version), is played when Spike encounters Appledelhi. This is also an instrumental version. Their subsequent fight sequence is played out against the blues-rock extension that this version includes.[3]

Lyrics

Readin' my paper in Ray's cafe

The ol' guy next to me is loud as day

Rambled and rambled while eatin' his pie

He dropped his wallet, now its mine uh huh


Sorry old man but that's jus' the way that it is

Don't bother none

Won't help at all to worry 'bout it


Picked up the wallet and slipped out side

Walked around and walked around and walked around town

I found my nerve and a good place to hide

Only to find no cash inside uh-huh


Oh well I guess that's just the way that it is

Don't bother none

Won't help at all to worry 'bout it


I got thirsty so I went to a bar

Met a lil darlin' with the face of a star

In the mornin' woke up to find

She stole my car along with my heart uh-huh


Oh well I guess that's jus' the way that it is

Don't bother none

Won't help at all to worry 'bout it


Wish she'd give me back my heart uh-huh

Oh, well I guess that's jus' the way that it is

Don't bother none

Won't help at all to worry 'bout it.
