"Just For Me" as written by and John C. Popper....
Just another one, four, five about as cute as can be,
And danceable but I don't really care
I was just glad I'm alive and I had nothing else to do
And besides, the beat was already there

Oh, that's right, no it wasn't me, I didn't do it
Say what you will but you can't blame a thing on me
And really even if you could I said I couldn't care less
Not now, not today, this morning you got me feeling free

Yeah, just me
This one's, this one's just for me
Yeah, yeah, just me
Oh, some things, some things are just for me

I swear to God I took a walk and it occurred to me while I was outside
That if I was looking for a miracle I might do well to look up to the sky
The dawn bringing open the day you'd say that it was blinding me
But still I had to stop right there and wonder why
Now, I know for certain, cause I've been around
That the sun shines every day, even though you might not get to see
No matter who, no matter where, no matter weather permitting
The miracle is that sometimes it can burn just for you

Or just me
Oh, this one's burning just for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah me
Oh, some things, some things are just for me

I wrote the editor for some news print shots
But he just sent me some old forget-me-nots
And this ain't Vegas but I've played the slots
So I figure on dropping one coin in
And some old Seminole yelled look out below
You know long ago they wouldn't let him go
But now they're laying low in Idaho
And so Geronimo, finally he gets to win

Or lose, who cares about the news
We all live and schmooze, as we choose
The effort's always in the details
I've put in my time
I bump and grind and rise and shine
I whine and whine and pine and ache like everybody else

Yeah, me
Oh, this one's, this one's just for me
Yeah, yeah, yeah me
Oh, some things, some things are just for me

Yeah, yeah, yeah me
Oh, this one's, this one's just for me
Yeah, me
Oh, some things, some things are just for me

Just another one, four, five about as cute as can be
And danceable but I don't really care

    "Just another one four five about as cute as can be
    And danceable but I don't really care"

    General CommentI found that 1 4 5 is a guitar chord.

    Just another one four five about as cute as can be
    And danceable but I don't really care
    I was just glad I'm alive and I had nothing else to do
    And besides the beat was already there
    [He wrote a catchy song because he felt like it. He knows it wasn’t well-written, but he “doesn’t really care”.]

    Oh that's right, no it wasn't me, I didn't do it
    Say what you will but you can't blame a thing on me
    And really even if you could I said I couldn't care less
    Not now not today this morning you got me feeling free
    [People tell him writing the song was a bad idea, but he wrote it out of his own good mood.]

    Yeah just me
    This one's, this one's just for me
    Yeah, yeah just me
    Some things, some things are just for me
    [Emphasizing that the song was written just for him. Not for a reason other than just because he wanted to.]

    I swear to god I took a walk and it occurred to me while I was outside
    That if I was looking for a miracle I might do well to look up to the sky
    The dawn breaking open the day you'd say that it was blinding me
    But still I had to stop right there and wonder why
    Now I know for certain cause I've been around
    That the sun shines every day even though you might not get to see
    No matter who no matter where no matter weather permitting
    The miracle is that sometimes it can burn just for you
    [He comes to the realization that things will always have a bright side. Even if you can’t see it, it’s there, waiting to show its face. It inspired him to write the song.]

    ...Or just me
    Oh this one's burning just for me
    Yeah, yeah, yeah me
    Some things, some things are just for me
    [Like the last chorus, it’s emphasizing that the song is just for him.]

    I wrote the editor for some news print shots
    But he just sent me some old forget-me-nots
    And this ain't Vegas but I've played the slots
    So I figure on dropping one coin in
    And some old Seminole yelled look out below
    You know long ago they wouldn't let him go
    But now they're laying low in Idaho
    And so Geronimo, he finally gets to win
    [I couldn’t figure this part out, which leads me to believe that my interpretation could be completely wrong.]

    ...Or lose, who cares about news
    We all live and schmooze as we choose
    The effort's always in the details
    I've put in my time
    I bump and grind and rise and shine
    I whine and whine and pine and ache like everybody else
    [He’s spend as much time as everyone else whining and complaining about nothing, but realized that it’s all for naught.]

    Yeah me
    This one's, this one's just for me
    Yeah, yeah, yeah me
    Some things, some things are just for me

    Yeah, yeah, yeah me
    This one's, this one's just for me
    Yeah me
    Some things, some things are just for me

    Just another one four five about as cute as can be
    And danceable but I don't really care.
