Collier, Jacob - It Don't Matter Lyrics




It don't matter what your papa gon' say
(Gonna love you any old way)
It don't matter 'bout the games you play now
(Gonna love you any old way)
It don't matter what the preacher gon' pray
(Gonna love you any old way)
'Cause when you wake up in the morning, gonna throw it all away

It don't matter if you're here to stay
(Gonna love you any old way)
What the people think about you never gonna stay the same
(Gonna love you any old way)
Well, maybe you're gonna run away
(Gonna love you any old way)
When you wake up in the morning, gonna throw it all away

And it feels like (whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa)
In the morning gonna feel like (whoa, oh, no-whoa-whoa)
Ooh-ooh-ooh, oh-oh-oh it feels like (whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa)
See everybody clap your hands if it feels like (whoa, whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-oh)

It don't matter if you gone astray
(Gonna love you any old way)
'Cause tomorrow will come it's gonna be okay, yeah
(Gonna love you any old way)
Never even matter if you sleep all day
(Gonna love you any old way)
'Cause when you wake up in the evening, gonna throw it all away

Feels like (ah, ah, ah, ah)
Does anybody here know what I'm talking about, say (whoa, oh, no-whoa-whoa)
Oh, feel like (whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa)
Everybody clap your hands if you feel like (whoa, whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-oh)

Jay, play

(Play it boy)

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yes, oh-oh

It feels like (whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa)
And in the morning gonna feel like (whoa, oh, no-whoa-whoa)
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa-oh-oh-oh (whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa)
In the morning gonna feel like (whoa, whoa, whoa-whoa-whoa-oh)

It don't matter what they say
I will be there
Let those voices fade away
I will be there
It don't matter what they say
I will be there
Let those voices fade away
I will be there
It don't matter what they say
I will be there
Let those voices fade away
I will be there
It don't matter what they say
I will be there
Let those voices fade away
I will be there

  7. Paradiddle

    Today was an extremely stressful day. Work. Life. The usual. I've known this song ever since the tiny desk performance. I've gotta say, the massive smile this song and video put on my face was extremely needed. Pure fun, joy, love, and happiness are bursting out of the screen with this one and it truly is amazing. Also seeing those chords at the end did my heart some good 😁. Thank you so much Jacob! Can't wait to see you in SF!

  8. Dylan Decker

    1:45 Jacob is so good he can play the melodica by telepathically forcing air through the instrument

    I never thought it was possible to so perfectly capture the aggresively mediocre quality of the mass of retards alive today, but this album sure did it. If this music makes you happy, please kill yourself.

  27. GnarGada

    2:08 does anyone else get a Popeye’s Chicken vibe from this lick

  28. PaThvan

    What do you praise that you do not understand? How interesting and important are the transitions, but there is no music, conceptualism goes through the roof, where is the motive and style? in 3020? this is not for me, I openly declare that this is a complete game, from which you get tired!

  29. Liz b

  62. ecilop Dorsey

    Take 6?

  63. MissRandomComment

    Oh my you are just made for eachother musically! This has the same flowy feeling as August Greene's version of Optimistic, as a vocalist this is just pure heaven to listen to.. You should do an eargasmic collab with Brandi and Robert Glasper!

  64. Luks Diaz

    Well done Jacob! I loved it. Greetings from Argentina

  65. fedebenavides

    This should blow up as pop music. It's got the good lyrics and it's nice to listen but with the musical complexity behind it that would make some regular pop listeners maybe hear something they never had

  66. Mon Griselone

    Wow..lo amé. 💖

  67. merrari

    First time seeing a...palimpsest in a contemporary form...like ever, right? BRILLIANT-BRILLIANT. 🧠🎶🎵🚷📜🖍⁉️👏🏿👏🏾👏🏽

  73. Blue

    He just projects so much positivity, love it!

  74. James McKeon

    what a beautiful person. so much soul! you seem very kind. truly spreading love through music. awesome :)))

  75. Quinn O'Keefe

    did it blow anyone elses fucking mind when he drew exactly what he was saying? In the context of the notes he was singing interweaving themselves into each line of the previous verse. Idk total music noob so i might have no idea what im talking about, but it just struck me as another level of mastery over a craft that i've never seen before.

  76. Ben Radtke

    Your tiny desk was awesome and this is one of your best songs!

  77. Steve Puente

    Jacob Collier is the Tommy Wiseau of music, except way more talented.

  78. Stewart Miller

    I don't like this. Sure, he knows what he's doing. I just don't like what he's doing. I might make people mad but his music is too negroid, and too poppy. There's an absolute lack of tension or drama in it.

    calchip

    First... one of the words you used... ouch! Not appropriate outside anthropological uses, and I don't think that's your intent. Second... have you bothered to listen to much of his other music? Some of it iis among the most complex, tension filled, emotion-laden music out there today. Sure, this one is a joy-filled piece, as is "Bathtub" and a number of his other tunes, but to judge Jacob by a single composition is to miss the entire concept of what and who he is.

  79. Jason Spangler

    Jacob you continue to impress and inspire me. Thank you

  80. Mister Pumpkinhead

    Beautiful and clever Jacob.

  81. Major Marley181

    ...Nice!

  82. Massimo Lem

    I'm very happy and so full of gratitude, to be here in this planet in the same historical period of jacob collier. God bless you Jacob.

  83. Lucas Pimentel

    that solo hit me hard

  84. Reynand R.W.

    I expected some kind of JoJo reference

  85. Pemain Lama

    Jacob I wanna heard you try playing cimbalom instrument from Hungarian. Thanks in advance ! Love your music whole stuff. ❤️ Greetings from Bali

    Jacob actually writes this fast, he didn't need to speed it up.

  95. Gella W

    Amazing!

    I see Jojo I click!! Simple! I looooove her. Her voice just makes me smile

  97. keanlockes memes

  98. Forgiven

    I hope my dad sings this song for me but he's gone.

  99. Cuisine And Talk

    Ah ahah so funny and happy music😍

  100. Sondhead1

    For some reason I've been obsessing about how Jacob is constantly seeding his work with throwbacks from previous work. Tell me if you think this is a stretch. Both this new song and Bathtub have rhythm tracks generated by his astounding facility with found sound in collage (Yes I know Do You Feel Love has this element too). The other throwback is that both this and Bathtub end with him making a heart hand. Also, Becca got to sing this at Tiny Desk. Or maybe this means I've just been listening to him too much lol!
