I dont want to work I want to bang on the drum all day I dont want to play I just want to bang on the drum all day Ever since I was a tiny boy I dont want no candy I dont 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 When I get older they think Im a fool The teacher told me I should stay after school She caught me pounding on the desk with my hands But my licks was so hot I made the teacher wanna dance And thats why Listen to this 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 bosss head Because I can bang that drum Hey, you wanna take a bang at it? I can do this all day
