I Just Want To Play

I should maybe show a Ringo clip from the show I went to the other night, but I decided to feature Todd Rungren from the All-Starr Band instead. Ringo picks some fun artists to tour with and I really like this song. This video is from last year’s tour. This year’s band includes Ringo (or course), Steve Lukather (Toto). Gregg Rolie (Santana), Todd Rungren (Nazz, Utopia, the New Cars), Richard Page (Mr. Mister), Warren Harm (Bloodrock, AD) and Gregg Bissonette as Ringo’s second drummer. I don’t work anymore, but one of the most fun songs for me other than Ringo’s was this one: Todd Rungren with Bang the Drum All Day:

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

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 wanna dance
And that’s why

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

I can bang that drum
Hey, you wanna take a bang at it?
I can do this all day

Songwriters: RUNDGREN, TODD
