Want to Draw My Cartoons All Day

From "Bang on the Drum All Day" by Todd Rundgren

I don't want to work
I want to draw my cartoons all day
I don't want to play
I just want to draw my cartoons all day

Ever since I was a tiny boy
I don't want no candy
I don't want no toy
I took a pen and some old paper scraps
I draw silly stuff until
everybody laughs
because...

I don't want to work
I want to draw my cartoons all day
I don't want to play
I just want to draw my cartoons all day

When I get older they think I'm a fool
The teacher told me I should stay after school
She saw the rough drafts before they were scanned
But my pics were so hot
Now the teacher is a fan
And that's why...

I don't want to work
I want to draw my cartoons all day
I don't want to play
I just want to draw my cartoons all day

Listen to this
Every day when I get home from work
I feel so frustrated
but I got no time to lurk
I get my pens and sit down at my desk
and I scribble cartoons until midnight becomes a pest
Because...

I don't want to work
I want to draw my cartoons all day
I don't want to play
I just want to draw my cartoons all day...
