Lyrics
Are you ready? Alright

(Everybody 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

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 was 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 (I just wanna bang now)

I don't want to work
I want to bang on the drum all day (I can 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 my sticks and go out to 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 (bang, bang)
I don't want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day (I could bang that drum)

I don't want to work
I want to bang on the drum all day (hey, hey)
I don't want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day (but this is why I bang that drum)

I don't want to work
I want to bang on the drum all day (hey, you want to take a bang at it?)
I don't want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day (hey, hey)

I don't want to work
I want to bang on the drum all day (bang, bang)
I don't want to play
I just want to bang on the drum all day (I could do this all day)
