I Heart the 90s: Sheryl Crow - All I Wanna Do

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: March 20, 2008

I’m soooo glad it’s Thursday. Can’t wait until it’s Friday. :-) This has been a long week. I want to be out and about. Granted it’s Easter weekend, and I have to work on Saturday. So, I won’t be doing a ton, but I’m looking forward to the weekend.

Sheryl Crow is pretty awesome. This song takes me back to middle school. I remember when my friend explained to me what she really meant by having fun. Ha. This song is also the song of the day.

Intro (Spoken):
Hit it!
This ain’t no disco
This ain’t no country club either
This is LA!

All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die.
Says a man next to me, outta nowhere.
This apropos nothing. He says his name is William.
But I’m sure it’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
As best they can in skirts and suits
They drive their shiny Datsons and Buicks
Back to the phone company, the record store too,
Well, they’re nothing like Billy and me, cause

Chorus:
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
And 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.

Chorus:
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
Untill 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.

Chorus:
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
Untill the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard
