(Theme From) The Monkees

Album: The Monkees (1966)
  • Here we come
    Walkin' down the street
    We get the funniest looks from
    Everyone we meet

    Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
    And people say we monkey around
    But we're too busy singing
    To put anybody down

    We go wherever we want to
    Do what we like to do
    We don't have time to get restless
    There's always something new

    Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
    And people say we monkey around
    But we're too busy singing
    To put anybody down

    We're just tryin' to be friendly
    Come and watch us sing and play
    We're the young generation
    And we've got something to say, oh

    Any time
    Or anywhere
    Just look over your shoulder
    Guess who'll be standing there?

    Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
    And people say we monkey around
    But we're too busy singing
    To put anybody down

    Whaaa, one time!

    Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
    And people say we monkey around
    But we're too busy singing
    To put anybody down

    We're just tryin' to be friendly
    Come and watch us sing and play
    We're the young generation
    And we've got something to say

    Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
    Hey, hey, we're the Monkees Writer/s: BOBBY HART, TOMMY BOYCE
