I like them strong
Simple and dumb
They wanna bang my drum
But it can't be done

They like the way I shake my tambourine
I got a boom and a bing
Baby you never seen

Turn me on, baby

Mean what I say
And say what I mean

I can't feel it
I wanna feel it
Harder, harder, harder

Harder, harder, harder

A better drummer boy (hey)
Pick up your stick (ha)
Hit me with your best (shot)

Oh
Oh

I need a drummer boy
Be my little drummer
