Bang the Drum All Day
Todd Rundgren

Lyrics

I don't want to work,
I want to bang on the drum all day.
I don't want to play,
I just want to bang on the drum all day.
Ever since I was a tiny boy,
I don't want no candy,
I don't need no toy.
I took a stick and an old coffee can,
I bang on that thing 'til I got blisters on my hand because
I don't want to work,
I want to bang on the drum all day.
Yes, I do.
I don't want to play,
I just want to bang on the drum all day.
That's right.
When I get older, they think I'm a fool.
The teacher told me I should stay after school.
She caught me pounding on the desk with my hands,
but my licks were so hot I made the teacher want to dance and that's why
I don't want to work,
I want to bang on the drum all day.
Hey, why not?
I don't want to play,
I just want to bang on the drum all day.
That's all right, now.
I don't want to work,
I want to bang on the drum all day.
I don't want to play,
I just want to bang on the drum all day.
Every day when I get home from work,
I feel so frustrated.
The boss is a jerk.
And I get my sticks and go out to the shed.
And I pound on that drum like it was the boss' head because
I don't want to work,
I want to bang on the drum all day.
I don't want to play,
I just want to bang on the drum all day.
I don't want to work,
I want to bang on the drum all day.
I don't want to play,
I just want to bang on the drum all day.
I don't want to work,
I want to bang on the drum all day.
I don't want to play...all day.
That's all right, now.
