All We Really Wanna Do (Polly)

Album: Rock 'til You Drop (1991)
  • I thought it over in a quiet room
    What about it, what about the dream
    Of the future, looking much better
    Wonder what is on the other side
    When we get there, if we do make it
    Better than it was before

    I think about it, would we be the same
    Working at it, will we fall again
    For the same lines and the same reasons
    Would we let them take us for a ride
    By the next time and the time after
    Won't be any time at all
    No, there won't be any time at all

    'cause all we really wanna do is
    What we wanna do and do it all the day
    But we never ever think about it
    Life goes on and love gets in the way
    Everybody does the same old thing
    And goes ahead and does it anyway

    Write a letter to a magazine
    Talk about it, talk about the dream
    Of the future, looking much better
    Wonder what is on the other side
    By the next time and the time after
    Won't be any time at all
    No, there won't be any time at all

    'cause all we really wanna do is
    What we wanna do and do it all the day
    But we never ever think about it
    Life goes on and love gets in the way

    All we really wanna do is
    What we wanna do and do it all the day
    But we never ever think about it
    Life goes on and love gets in the way

    All we really wanna do is
    What we wanna do and do it all the day
