Happy Sunday!

Today, Helen has asked us for songs that include the word street. Thanks, Helen!

I’ll admit, I loved the Monkees, as a band, and also their television show. It was funny, with lots of slapstick and campy humor, and had good music. I bought all their albums (vinyl) and still have them here. My daughters enjoyed the music and show, too. Funny fact…we actually do sometimes sing the song together, and do the funny walk.

Hope you enjoy this blast from the past.

P.S. Did you like the Monkees? Which guy was your favorite? I thought Davy was cute, but my favorite was Micky. I’d seen Micky Dolenz years ago in a movie titled, “Circus Boy”, and it was fun to see him again in the later TV show. 🙂

“(Theme From) The Monkees”

Here we come, walkin’
Down the street
We get the funniest looks from
Ev’ry one we meet
Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees
And people say we monkey around
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody downWe 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 downWe’re just tryin’ to be friendly
Come and watch us sing and play
We’re the young generation
And we’ve got something to sayAny time, Or anywhere
Just look over your shoulder
Guess who’ll be standing thereHey, hey, we’re the Monkees
And people say we monkey around
But we’re too busy singing
To put anybody down

[break]

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
[repeat and fade]

[Extra verse:]
Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees
You never know where we’ll be found
So you’d better get ready
We may be comin’ to your town
