"All I Want to Do" (also known as "All I Wanna' Do") is an unreleased Weezer song originally recorded as a demo for Make Believe. It was previously demoed under the title "She Who Is Militant", later under the title "Tell Me What You Did" and then finally released as "This Is Such A Pity".

Overview

The song was demoed several times by the band from 2002 until 2005, evolving several times. "All I Want to Do" was recorded during the band's second attempt at making Make Believe, at Grandmaster Recorders in Los Angeles, CA. It was one of 12 songs that Rivers Cuomo asked to band to only concentrate on, as well as part of the early Unchained Melody working album. The SIR Preproduction version, "All I Wanna' Do", uses modified verse lyrics from the original version of "She Who Is Militant" along with the new chorus. The backing instrumentals were reused for the demo "Sleeping All the Night".

Lyrics

Unchained Melody version

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

All I Wanna' Do

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