The Lyrics

I am drumming you can't snore
Cause I'm too loud too ignore
And I know I've got to stop just don't know when
No matter how much you implore
Drums won't go back to the store
No not even if you tell me I'm your friend

You've guessed I ain't nice
It's just I was born to bang
Yes you've told me twice
I'm driving you insane
When I want to, I can't hear anything
Talk too long (long)
I'm unconvincible (unconvincible)
I am drumming

I offend but please don't hate me
Just learn to appreciate me
Should admit it now I've made your life less droll
You don't like the way it's sounding
And you think that I'm just pounding
Well I think that you should blame it on thin walls

Drumming is my vice
Life through music is my pain
Try to break the ice
I'm met with your disdain
I have talent, I can play anything
I love congas (congas)
I love timpanis (timpanis)
I love drumming

I am drumming hear me pound
Hear me making tribal sounds
Need to learn to flail my arms to join a band
I love to play those bongos
Babaloo is my hero
'Cause I love to pound the skins with my hand

I'm deaf to your cries
Yes, you're shouting out in vain
Might take my advice
It's useless to complain
When I'm banging I can't hear anything
I am loud (loud)
I'm reprehensible (reprehensible)
I am drumming
Oh, I am drumming
I'm offending all
Play too long

I am drumming
I'm not sensible
I am loud
When I'm drumming
