ALL I WANNA DO

A classic Big Daddy Orange article sung to the tune of Sheryl Crow's, "All I Wanna Do"

Dang it!
That wasn't Fresno.
That wasn't the Temple Owls either.
That was U-C-L-A!
"All I wanna do is watch the Beavs beat a PAC-10 team sometime soon."
says the orange clad man sitting next to me out of nowhere
It's apropos of everything.
I know his name is Zigmund but you know
him as Zig, or Ziggy, or "Seriously Bummed out Beaver Fan."
And the game was plain ugly to us.
And I wonder, like him, just where the next Beaver win will come from.
We are sitting in Reser just after the game Saturday
in the bleachers facing a scoreboard that doesn't make us happy.
The good Beaver children and autograph hounds are down on the field
chasing down footballs, pushing and shoving and pestering players, who are gracious
as best they can be after a butt-thumpin'


People shake their heads and to each other as they walk back to their Datsuns and Beavermobiles,
belaboring the obvious, the blocking, the tackling, the turnovers too.
Well, they're a lot like Ziggy and me, cause


[Chorus] All we wanna do is have some post-game fun.
It's a whole lot easier when Beavs have won.
All we wanna do is have some post-game fun.
It'll never happen if the offense can't run.
All we wanna do is have some post-game fun.
At least the Yankees lost and they're not celebrating on Broadway Boulevard.


I like a big lead early in a football game
and Ziggy likes big plays for early scores
from two big play players.
But other than those plays, the Beavs were getting shredded.
The defense got lit up every way you can think of,
burned on the pass, burned on the run, and burned on third and long.
They'll get burned every game if they can't come up with a pass rush
‘cause no secondary can cover good receivers forever.


And the running game…
Dangerously close to nonexistent
I'm hoping this trip to Tempe might cure that, cause


All we wanna do is have some post-game fun.
It's a whole lot easier when Beavs have won.
All we wanna do is have some post-game fun.
It's gonna kill us next week if UCLA's conference record's 1-1.
All we wanna do is have some post-game fun.
Next week I'll watch the game in the bar on Farmington Boulevard.


Otherwise a bowl berth is history
the Rose and the Holiday and the Sun Bowl too
the Insight and the Las Vegas, if you come right down to it
the Humanitarian might have to do, but


All we wanna do is have some post-game fun.
It's a whole lot easier when Beavs have won.
All we wanna do is have some post-game fun.
It could happen next week in the Arizona sun.
All we wanna do is have some post-game fun.
I'll see you in three weeks coming down Western Boulevard.
