ALL: Hey hey, we are the Monkees, you know we love to please
A manufactured image, with no philosophies!
MIKE: We hope you like our story, although there isn't one
That is to say there's many, that way there is more fun!
PETER: You've told us you like action, and games of many kinds
You like to dance, we like to sing, so let's all lose our minds!
MICKY: We know it doesn't matter, 'cause what you came to see
is what we love to give you, and give it 1, 2, 3!
DAVY: But it may come 3, 2, 1, too, or jump from 9 to 5
And when you see the end in sight, the beginning may arrive!
MIKE: For those who look for meanings in form as they do fact,
We might tell you one thing, but we'd only take it back.
MICKY: Not back like in a box step, not back like in a race
Not back so we can keep it, but back in time and space!
DAVY: You say we're manufactured, to that we all agree
So take your choice and we'll rejoice in never being free!
ALL: Hey hey, we are the Monkees, we've said it all before
The money's in, we're made of tin, we're here to give you more!
The money's in, we're made of tin, we're here to give you- [THEY ARE CUT OFF BY A SCREAM]
