A one two three four, one
Yeah

OK
Don't do it don't you try it baby
Don't do that don't don't don't
Don't do that
You got a good thing going now
Don't do it don't do it
Don't
Don't try suicide
Nobody's worth it
Don't try suicide
Nobody cares
Don't try suicide
You're just gonna hate it
Don't try suicide
Nobody gives a damn

So you think it's the easy way out
Think you're gonna slash your wrists
This time
Baby when you do it all you do is
Get on my tits
Don't do that try try try baby
Don't do that, you got a good thing going now

Nobody gives a damn

You need help
Look at yourself you need help
You need life
So don't hang yourself
It's OK, OK, OK, OK
You just can't be a prick teaser all of the time
A little bit attention, you got it
Need some affection, you got it
Suicide suicide suicide bid
Suicide suicide suicide bid
Suicide

Don't do it don't do it don't do it babe (Yeah)
Don't do it don't do it don't, do it
Yeah

Don't put your neck on the line
Don't drown on me babe
Blow your brains out
Don't do that (Yeah)
Don't do that, you got a good thing going baby
Don't do it (No) don't do it (No) don't
Don't try suicide
Nobody's worth it
Don't try suicide
Nobody cares
Don't try suicide
You're just gonna hate it
Don't try suicide
Nobody gives, nobody cares
Nobody gives a damn

OK

    Fill Baghdad up with speakers, and play a never-ending loop consisting of just this song!

    General CommentI don't know if I know anyone who has ever tried to commit suicide. It makes me sad that someone would feel so hopeless about life. Tomorrow is a new day. If you are someone who has tried suicide or feels suicidal, you need to remember that you have loads of people who love you and give a damn. And that bit about not getting into heaven is SUCH a crock of shit.

    General CommentNo, not very strait forward at all...
    It seems to be a relationship of some sort, whether romantic, familial, or just a friendship, but the verses are one member of the relationship, seemingly a male telling the other (presumably female) that [she] should not kill [her]self,"When you do it, all you do is get on my tits" then the chorus brings in a dialogue of some sort, perhaps between the two, but more likely the person considering suicide with themself, [she] hears "Don't try suicide, nobody's worth it" and then within says, "Nobody cares...Nobody Gives a damn"

    Its all about the internal conflict, and how ridiculous it can sometimes be, with such a serious subject the arrangement is almost humorous, as if it were actually satirizing the melodramatic progressive rock bands of the time...

    General CommentTo start off, this song was firmly tounge-in-cheek. The real meaning is seen as a joke. First it says "Don't Try Suicide"...then "Nobody cares." Simply put, if someone said they were going to commit suicide, you wouldn't say "Nobody cares." The song is just a morbid joke, thats why I love it.

    General CommentStrangely enough, while thinking about my love of Freddie, about to commit suicide to join him, I heard this song, and even though I had sworn a blood oath (over my shrine) to kill myself before the age he was when he died, hearing his voice sing, 'Don't try suicide,' I couldn't. And soon after, my best friend came up to me and started saying, 'you shouldn't be so obsessed with something, seriously. You're wasting your life away, and if you keep this up, it's going to kill you.'

    But it was virtually wat saved me.

    General CommentI always assumed it was a parody of over-simple "inspirational" songs such as "Just Say No", although I think it predates that specific example by some years.
