The D-Men - You Just Don't Care (1964)

Note: This is the early ‘60s Australian group known as The D-Men.

As with so many other groups around the world, this Australian group was profoundly influenced by The Beatles and Beatlemania. Formed in 1963 in Sydney, Australia, this group featured two rhythm guitarists and three total guitarists at all times. Their popularity was most prominent in New South Wales due to extensive touring with acts such as Ray Brown & The Whispers and Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs.

Released in 1964, this song was the B-side of the single that featured the A-side “I Don’t Know What to Do”. The three guitarists were Frank Collimore, Freddie Cooke, and Vic Sacco. The band also featured George Robertson on bass and Ross Rignold on drums.

Lyrics:

I’ve been tryin’ to figure out a way
To make you mine, but I don’t know what to say
Once you stop playin’ hard to get
True, it’s only been once we met
It seems to me you just don’t care

Every time you’re seen with someone new
Is there anyone per that I’m blue?
I’m just sitting here by myself
Like a lonely pool on a shelf
It seems to me you just don’t care

I’ve never felt this way before
I only wish I’d see you more

If you ever need a love that’s true
Call on me and I will come to you
Maybe one day you’ll meet a guy
Whom you’ll love, and he’ll say ‘goodbye’
And tells you that he doesn’t care

I’ve never felt this way before
I only wish I’d see you more

If you ever need a love that’s true
Call on me and I will come to you
Maybe one day you’ll meet a guy
Whom you’ll love and he’ll say ‘goodbye’
And tells you that he doesn’t care
And tells you that he doesn’t care
And tells you that he doesn’t care
