    You can't make a thing - help

    Всем добрый день!
    Если не сложно, помогите, пожалуйста, понять смысл двух предложений: "You can't make a thing, 'cause the meter's dead" and "You don't give a damn about the job you've got".

    Добрый день, litrobot.
    You can't make a thing, 'cause the meter's dead
    Ты ничего не можешь сделать, потому что счётчик не работает.

    "You don't give a damn about the job you've got".
    Тебе наплевать на то, какая у тебя работа.
    "Happy new year, happy new year
    May we all have a vision now and then
    Of a world where every neighbour is a friend"

    Хммм, тут можно понять и по-другому: "Тебе наплевать на твою работу". Я бы скорее так понял.

    Спасибо большое за помощь! Меня застопорило на 'cause the meter's dead'. Это из песни David Bowie:
    'You've bought some coffee, butter and bread
    You can't make a thing, 'cause the meter's dead
    You've moved away
    Told you're folks you're gonna stay away'
    и я не могу понять, какой смысл в этой строке...
