All I Wanna Do

Sheryl Crow

 

E

All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die
             C                                Dsus2/A

Says the man next to me out of nowhere

      E                    
It's apropos of nothing he says his name is William

            C                                Dsus2/A
But I'm sure he's Bill or Billy or Mac or Buddy
              E     
And he's plain ugly to me, and I wonder if he's

C                                                Dsus2/A

Ever had a day of fun in his whole life
 

E           
We are drinking beer at noon on Tuesday

         C                                       Dsus2/A
In the bar that faces the giant car wash

            E
And the good people of the world are washing their cars on their

                      C                                               Dsus2/A

Lunch breaks, hosing and scrubbing as best they can in skirts and suits
A                                                                 Bb/A
And they drive their shiny Datsuns and Buicks

A                                                                         Bb/A
Back to the phone company, the record stores, too

A
Well, they're nothing like Billy and me
 

CHORUS:

                            E
'Cause All I wanna do is have some fun

          C                                 D7
I got a feeling I'm not the only one
                  E
All I wanna do is have some fun

          C                                 D7
I got a feeling I'm not the only one

                  E
All I wanna do is have some fun
             C

Until the sun comes up over

D                            E
Santa Monica Boulevard  

E
I like a good beer buzz, early in the morning

C                                                   Dsus2/A
Billy likes to peal the labels from his bottles of bud

E
He shreds them on the bar then he lights up every match

                        C                             Dsus2/A
In an oversized pack letting each one burn

                  E
Down to his thick fingers before blowing and cursing them out,

C                                       Dsus2/A                

he's watching the bottles of bud as they spin on the floor
A                                                 Bb/A
And a happy couple enters the bar

A                                                 Bb/A
Dangerously, close to one another

A                                                 
The bartender looks up from his want ads
 

CHORUS
 
A                                     Bb/A

Otherwise the bar is ours,

A                                                               Bb/A

the day and the night and the car wash, too,

A                                                                               Bb/A

the matches and the Buds, and the clean and dirty cars,
A

The sun and the moon , 'Cause

 

CHORUS
