"I'm Not Gonna Let It Bother Me Tonight" as written by and Buie/nix/daughtry....
I picked up the paper this morning
And read all the daily blues
The world is one big tragedy
I wonder what I can do

About all the pain and injustice
About all of the sorrow
We're living in a danger zone
The world could end tomorrow

But I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
Tomorrow I might go as far as suicide
But I won't let it bother me tonight

Life on the street is a jungle
A struggle to keep up the pace
I just can't beat that old dog eat dog
The rats keep winnin' the rat race

But I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
The world is in an uproar and I see no end in sight
But I won't let it bother me tonight

I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
Tomorrow I might go as far as suicide
But I won't let it bother me tonight

Lord, Lord, Lord
We got nothing but trouble
I've done all I can do today
So bartender pour me a double, right now

But I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
The world is in an uproar and I see no end in sight
But I won't let it bother me tonight

I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
No I'm not gonna let it bother me tonight
Tomorrow I might go as far as suicide
But I will not let it bother me tonight

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a man that is set to commit suicide. In fact he mentions it in his song. He is fed up with the world and of course is going to get drunk and party on his last night. I would say the person in the song is someone that is very educated being that he does read the newspaper.. The way many did back in the 70's. Thinking too much and taking the problems of the world too hard, he clearly has had enough. Notice no mention of any women. The guy just gave up on life and people in general and is content to have his double for this last night on earth.
