"Pack Up" as written by Matthew Prime, Timothy Daniel Woodcock, Eliza Caird, Felix Powell and George Asaf....
I get tired and upset
And I'm trying to care a little less
When I Google I only get depressed
I was taught to dodge those issues I was told
Don't worry
Cos no doubt
There's always something to cry about
And when your stuck in an angry crowd
They don't think what they say before they open their mouth

You gotta

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
And bury them beneath the sea
I don't care what the people may say
What the people may say about me
Pack Up your troubles get your old grin back
Don't worry bout the cavalry
I don't care what the whisperers say
Cos they whisper too loud for me

Hot topic
Maybe I should drop it
It's a touchy subject
And I like to tiptoe round the ship going down
You got pennies but no pounds
So if your business is running out
It's not business to talk about
But they don't think what they say before they open their mouth

You gotta

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
And bury them beneath the sea
I don't care what the people may say
What the people may say about me
Pack up your troubles get your old grin back
Don't worry bout the cavalry
I don't care what the whisperers say
Cos they whisper too loud for me

Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
And bury them beneath the sea
I don't care what the people may say
What the people may say about me
Pack up your troubles get your old grin back
Don't worry bout the cavalry
I don't care what the whisperers say
Cos they whisper too loud for me

Yeah

Pack up, pack up, pack up, pack up
Pack up, pack up, pack up, pack up
Pack up, pack up, pack up, pack up
Pack up, pack up, pack up, pack up

    General CommentLove this song! Perfect for the summer, noticed a couple mistakes though I think:

    In the first verse, it is "I was taught to dodge those issues, I was told..." - rather than touch.

    And the chorus;
    "Pack up your troubles in your old, big bag
    And bury them beneath the sea" :]

    I get tired
    And upset
    And i’m trying to care a little less
    When I google I only get depressed
    I wast taught to dodge those issues I was told
    Don’t worry
    There’s no doubt
    There’s always something to cry about
    When you’re stuck in an angry crowd
    They don’t think what they say before they open their mouths

    [chorus]
    Pack up your troubles in you old kit bag
    And bury them beneath the sea
    I don’t care what the people may say
    What the people may say about me
    Pack up your troubles get your old grin back
    Don’t worry ’bout the cavalry
    I don’t care what the whisperers say
    Cos’ they whisper too loud for me.

    Hot topic
    Maybe I should drop it
    It’s a touchy subject
    And I like to tiptoe round the tiff (though it's "shit" in her official video) goin’ down
    You got penny, but no pound
    Your business is running out
    ‘not my business to talk about
    They don’t think what they say before they open their mouths.

    [chorus]
    Pack up your troubles in you old kit bag
    And bury them beneath the sea
    I don’t care what the people may say
    What the people may say about me
    Pack up your troubles get your old grin back
    Don’t worry ’bout the cavalry
    I don’t care what the whisperers say
    Cos’ they whisper too loud for me.

    General CommentI don´t care what the whisperers say, cause they whisper to loud for me.........
    For me that´s defenitely the best part of the lyrics. Maybe they should print it and make a poster for in high schools...? That would be fun.

    General CommentI thought it was "Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag" from the old world war one song? You know, "Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile"?

    General CommentI think the meaning is pretty damn obvious here.


    "I don't care what the people may say, what the people may say about me"

    It's that whole critiques mess. What's interesting to me is that Eliza had someone else singing that chorus ("Pack up your drama in your old, big big, and bury them beneath the sea", as well as the second part), as if the guy was talking to her, saying she should care about what people say. After the guy sings his part, Eliza sings that first verse I put there.

    I do find the theme extremely blent (and a LOT of new and even older artists use it in their songs), but the song, with its happy form, seems to be such a helper. Someone helped Eliza with this problem, and, in order get her attention, even told her: "don't worry 'bout the cavalry".

    General CommentI like this song. Like others have said, its meaning is self-explanatory. Pack Up is about not caring what others think of you and to just let go, and be carefree. The video shows this carefree attitude too. I love the jazzy aspect to the song and Lloyd Wade's voice.
