    Default I just wanna have some fun and I think someone else does too

    I'm new. Rediscovering my love of music after being a nun for 20 years, sort of, ha.
    I woke up yesterday to this song on the alarm radio, couldn't id it or get it our of my head, sang it all day then lost it in the evening. It's by a woman, kind of sounding like ricki lee jones but not her, similiar time period or a decade newer I'm not sure when. The refrain goes like this, "I just wanna have some fun, and I think someone else does too...." Anybody know this who can help me out? Why doesn't itunes have a search lyric function? That would be cool.
    Thanks,
    Homegirl

    could it be All I Wanna Do - Sheryl Crow

    Hit it!
    This ain't no disco
    It ain't no country club either
    This is LA!

    "All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die,"
    Says the man next to me out of nowhere
    It's apropos
    Of nothing
    He says his name's William but I'm sure,
    He's Bill or Billy or Mac or Buddy
    And he's plain ugly to me
    And I wonder if he's ever had a day of fun in his whole
    life
    We are drinking beer at noon on Tuesday
    In a bar that faces a giant car wash
    The good people of the world are washing their cars
    On their lunch break, hosing and scrubbing
    As best they can in skirts in suits

    They drive their shiny Datsuns and Buicks
    Back to the phone company, the record store too
    Well, they're nothing like Billy and me, cause

    [Chorus]
    All I wanna do is have some fun
    I got a feeling I'm not the only one
    All I wanna do is have some fun
    I got a feeling I'm not the only one
    All I wanna do is have some fun
    Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

    I like a good beer buzz early in the morning
    And Billy likes to peel the labels
    From his bottles of Bud
    He shreds them on the bar
    Then he lights every match in an oversized pack
    Letting each one burn down to his thick fingers
    before blowing and cursing them out
    And he's watching the bottles of Bud as they spin on
    the floor

    And a happy couple enters the bar
    Dangerously close to one another
    The bartender looks up from his want ads

    Chorus

    Otherwise the bar is ours,
    The day and the night and the car wash too
    The matches and the Buds and the clean and dirty
    cars
    The sun and the moon but

    Chorus
