It Don’t Matter ~ Donavon Frankenreiter

Donavon Frankenreiter is an American musician and surfer.  He took up surfing as a teenager at San Clemente, California, and was signed to a sponsorship deal with Billabong allowing him to travel the world surfing. During his travels, he rented a room in North Shore, Oahu, Hawaii, from Jack Johnson’s parents and the surfer-musicians developed a strong friendship.

Donavon is also well known for his appearances in the Drive Thru series of surf videos.

Frankenreiter started playing in Peanut Butter and Jam at the age of 18. In 1996 he began to seriously pursue a musical career when he formed the band Sunchild. In Sunchild, Frankenreiter was the lead guitar player but did not sing. The band had a 70s rock sound similar in style to The Black Crowes. They released their first CD, Barefoot & Live, on Surfdog Records in 1997. Produced by Gary Hoey, the live album featured covers of The Allman Brothers Band, The Marshall Tucker Band, The Rolling Stones, and Van Morrison, as well as several originals. California Honey followed in 2000 on their own Sunchild Records. This studio album is now out-of-print. Sunchild disbanded in 2001 and Frankenreiter went on to pursue a solo career.

Every day people like you and me
Just want to live naturaly
Time told you and you told me
Nothings gonna get us down can’t you see

I said if it don’t matter to you
It don’t matter to me
If it don’t matter to you
It don’t matter to me

People all around making sounds
And all kinds of noise
If I could only get there then I could enjoy
Who they trying to be who they trying to fool
Lets change the mood right now
Turn down the lights its time to cool it down

If it don’t matter to you
It don’t matter to me
If it don’t matter to you
It don’t matter to me

Yesterday and what we could be
It don’t matter
Getting more of what we don’t need
It don’t matter
Everything unless I’m with you
It doesn’t matter to me, no

Bring it on down bring it on down to me
Sing it on down sing it on down for me
Sing it on down sing it on down to me

If it don’t matter to you
It don’t matter to me
(No no no no)
If it don’t matter to you
It don’t matter to me
(Mmm Hmm)
If it don’t matter to you
It don’t matter to me
(No no no no)
If it don’t matter to you
It don’t matter to me

Sometimes it don’t matter to me
Don’t matter to me
