  • Song 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'd take a stick and an old coffee can
    I'd bang on that thang 'till 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 home and I think I'm a fool
    The teacher's told me I should stay after school
    She caught me pounding on the desk with my hand
    But my licks were so hot I made the teacher want to dance

    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

    I don't want to work
    I want to bang on the drum all day (Mikey, bang that sucker)
    I don't want to play
    I just want to bang on the drum all day (listen to this)

    Every day when I get home from work
    I feel so frustrated, the boss is a jerk
    And I get backstairs, and go out through the shed
    And I pound on that drum like it was the boss's 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

    (Shalom)
