Overview

"All I Want to Do" is one of several songs derived from Catalog O' Riffs entry #369, beginning with "She Who Is Militant" and ultimately culminating in the Make Believe track "This Is Such a Pity".

Rivers Cuomo recorded a demo of "All I Wanna' Do" at S.I.R. Rehearal Studios on April 23, 2004 during pre-production on Make Believe. The song was demoed again in early May. These demos were first heard by fans when they were accidentally leaked through the demo storefront on riverscuomo.com in November of 2020. The demos were made available for purchase by fans that same month as part of the demo compilation Alone IX: The Make Believe Years.

Lyrics

"All I Wanna' Do"

It looks like
You were never gonna be my queen
It looks like
There are too many places that you wanna see

Oh, if you ever need someone
I'll be there
I'll be there

'Cause all I wanna do
Is make sweet love to you
And all I wanna say
Is that you made my day
And all I wanna do
Is be your friend

It looks like
There are other friends that'll put on a show
And that's all good
But, in time, each and every one of 'em go

Oh, if you ever change your mind
I'll be there
I'll be there

'Cause all I wanna do
Is make sweet love to you
And all I wanna say
Is that you made my day
And all I wanna do
Is be your friend

I'll be there
I'll be there
I'll be there
I'll be there

'Cause all I wanna do
Is make sweet love to you
And all I wanna say
Is that you made my day
'Cause all I wanna do
Is make sweet love to you
And all I wanna say
Is that you made my day
And all I wanna do
Is be your friend

"All I Want to Do"

Why do you look so skeptical?
Why do you look so incredulous?

Oh, if you ever need someone
I'll be there
I'll be there

'Cause all I wanna do
Is make sweet love to you
And all I wanna say
Is that you made my day
And all I wanna do
Is be your friend

Did someone
Hurt you when you gave them your trust?
Did true love
Turn into nothing more than lust?

Oh, if you ever change your mind
I'll be there
I'll be there

'Cause all I wanna do
Is make sweet love to you
And all I wanna say
Is that you made my day
And all I wanna do
Is be your friend

I'll be there
I'll be there
I'll be there
I'll be there

'Cause all I wanna do
Is make sweet love to you
And all I wanna say
Is that you made day
And all I wanna do
Is make sweet love to you
And all I wanna say is that you made my day
And all I wanna do is be your friend
