All I Wanna Do Lyrics - Sheryl Crow

Review The Song (4)



All I Wanna Do


Hit it!
This ain't no disco
It ain't no country club either
This is LA!

"All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die,"
Says the man next to me out of nowhere
It's apropos of nothing
He says his name's William but I'm sure
He's Bill or Billy or Mac or Buddy
And he's plain ugly to me
And I wonder if he's ever had a day of fun in his whole life
We are drinking beer at noon on Tuesday
In a bar that faces a giant car wash
The good people of the world are washing their cars
On their lunch break, hosing and scrubbing
sponsored links
As best they can in skirts in suits
They drive their shiny Datsuns and Buicks
Back to the phone company, the record store too
Well, they're nothing like Billy and me, cause

All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

I like a good beer buzz early in the morning
And Billy likes to peel the labels
From his bottles of Bud
He shreds them on the bar
Then he lights every match in an oversized pack
Letting each one burn down to his thick fingers
Before blowing and cursing them out
And he's watching the bottles of Bud as they spin on the floor
And a happy couple enters the bar
Dangerously close to one another
The bartender looks up from his want ads but

All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

Otherwise the bar is ours,
The day and the night and the car wash too
The matches and the Buds and the clean and dirty cars
The sun and the moon but

All I wanna do is have some fun
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
I've got a feeling the party has just begun
All I wanna do is have some fun
I won't tell you that you're the only one
All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard
Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

Looking at the Rat Race | Reviewer: Jeroen | 10/4/12

Besides the fantastic groove,the song describes perfectly how Sheryl and Bill look at the Rat Race we're all in. She relativates in a sort of "helicopter view " which actually is a bar with ofcourse alcohol. It's not her who needs to drown her sorrow as stated by Paul. She has a clear picture, and she's telling us to slow down and enjoy life.

Have some fun | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/22/11

@Paul: the lyrics for this song are based on a poem published in 1987 by Wyn Cooper. See: http://ahsahtapress.boisestate.edu/books/cooper.htm for a good copy. And relax. And have some fun. And live a little.

surprised this was Sheryl Crow | Reviewer: RK | 7/28/10

i heard this on the radio, had no idea who it was. from the sound and the lyrics, i was convinced it was from the late 70s or early 80s. it was kind of a shock to find it's Sheryl Crow. it's a really good song, with one of those rare "no rhyme" lyrics that actually works really well. i had no idea she did music like this, so i might have to reconsider my bias against her :-)

Sad song | Reviewer: Paul | 9/23/09

I like this song, for the tune, but not for the lyrics. It is a sad statement on our society that some people have no more reason to live than to drown their sorrow in a bottle of Bud. It is a statement of desperation. I feel sorry for the person who wrote the song.
