Lyric of the Week: I DON’T WANT TO GO TO WORK

I don’t want to go to work

I want to roll over and go to sleep

I don’t want to go to work

My non-work hours are mine to keep

I don’t want to go to work

I want to stay home and play

I don’t want to go to work

I want to take it easy all day.

47 years on the work force slaving away for someone else

Maybe the money comes in but I want the time for myself

I gotta earn my bread by the sweat of my brow

But I don’t want to wait till 65—I want to live my life now.

I don’t want to go to work

I want to spend the day in my summer clothes

I don’t want to go to work

I want to go where the cool water flows

I don’t want to go to work

I want to spend my time writing

I don’t want to go to work

And have to deal with all the infighting.

Don’t want to go through life doing something I hate

I want to do what I like, not fall back on some second rate

Jobs that are only there to help me pay my bills

And make very little use of my talents and skills.


I don’t want to go to work

I want to get in my car and hit the road

I don’t want to go to work

I just want to drive wherever the car will go

I don’t want to go to work

I want to lay all day on the beach

I don’t want to go to work

Don’t want to do, don’t want to teach.

Don’t want to be a phony, wearing corporate masks

Conforming to the work world, always doing what I’m asked

I want to be the one to call my own shots

With no one else to tell me when I can go or cannot.

I don’t want to go to work

I just want to play my drums

I don’t want to go to work

I just wanna be a bum

I don’t want to go to work

This responsible thing is not for me

I don’t want to go to work

I think I’ll go climb a tree

And all this is serious, though I might make it sound funny

There’s got to me more to life than grinding away for money

Like lust and leather, or love and laughter

And fairy tale endings of living happily every after.

I just want to bang on my drum all day.

One of my songs from the early 2000s, expressing my frustration with a job I hated. Inspired in no small part by Todd Rundgren's hit, but the music still needs to be composed.
