As We Go Along
by Carole King & Toni Stern
I can tell by your face
That you're looking to find a place
To settle your mind and reveal who you are,
And you shouldn't be shy,
For I'm not gonna try
To hurt you or heal you or steal your star.
Open your eyes,
Get up off of your chair,
There's so much to do in the sunlight,
Give up your secrets,
And let down your hair,
And sit with me here by the firelight.
Why think all about
Who's gonna win out?
We'll make up our story as we go along,
There's so little time
For us to try to rhyme,
And so many highways to travel upon.
Open your eyes,
Get up off of your chair,
There's so much to do in the sunlight,
Give up your secrets,
And let down your hair,
And sit with me here by the firelight.

Can You Dig It?
by Peter Tork
Something doesn't change,
There is only one,
Always changing inside,
What does it become?
Can you dig it?
Do you know?
Would you care to let it show?
Those who know it use it,
Those who scorn it die,
To sing that you can dig it
Is to make your soul to fly to heaven.
Can you dig it?
Do you know?
Would you care to let it show?
SOLO
Can you dig it?
Do you know?
Would you care to let it show?
There is only feeling
In this world of life and death,
I sing the praise of never change
With every single breath.
Can you dig it?
Do you know?
Would you care to let it show?

Hmm, do you know?

Circle Sky
by Michael Nesmith
Circle sky
Telling lies,
Here I stand
Happy man.
'Cause it looks like we've made it once again,
Yes, it looks like we've made it once again.
Color sound
Is all around,
Wing tip smile
Sees for miles.
And it looks like we've made it once again,
Yes, it looks like we've made it once again.
It's a very extraordinary scene
To those who don't understand,
But, what you have seen you must believe,
If you can, if you can.
Hamilton
Smiling down,
Telling more
Than before.
And it looks like we've made it once again,
Yes, it looks like we've made it to the end.

Daddy's Song
by Harry Nilsson
Years ago, I knew a man,
He was my mother's biggest fan,
We used to walk beside the sea,
And he told me how life would be
When I grew up to be a man.
Years ago, we used to play,
He used to laugh when I ran away,
But when I fell and hurt my knee,
He would run to comfort me,
And the pain would go away.
Years ago, I knew a boy,
He was his daddy's pride and joy,
But when the daddy went away
It was such a rainy day
That he brought out all his toys.
How the momma did explain,
Trying to take away the pain,
But, he just couldn't understand
That his father was not a man
And it all was just a game.
The years have passed and so have I,
Making it hard for me to cry,
And if and when I have a son,
Let it all be said and done,
Let the sadness pass him by.

Dandruff?
by Jack Nicholson & Robert Rafelson
"Supernatural, perhaps..."
"Change one tape, the entire process is regeared. Leisure: the inevitable 
by-product of our civilization. The tragedy of your times, my young friends, is 
that you may get exactly what you want."
Cop: "Out..."
Mike: "Oh"
Cop: "Out...get outta here."
Micky: "Hi. What's going on?"
Cop: "Move it! Out!"
Peter: "Oh, hello officer, certainly glad to..."
Cop: "Shut up!...Okay, weirdoes..."
Director: "All right, fellas, will you come forward, please?"
Micky: "Who's that?"
Director: "All right, now, jump up and down a little, huh, fellas? Get lost in 
it...""
Davy: "Jump into this?!? What is this stuff?"
Director: "...there you go...very good. Look, you're supposed to be dandruff, 
fellas."
All: "Dandruff?"
Director: "Will you work at it, please? Jump up and down a little bit..."
Playback: "Dandruff, dandruff..."
Director: "Good, that's better, that's good."

Ditty Diego - War Chant
by Jack Nicholson & Robert Rafelson
(Well?
Are you kidding? Ha-ha!
Hey, now wait a minute...)
Hey, hey, we are The Monkees,
You know we love to please,
A manufactured image
With no philosophies.
We hope you'll like our story,
Although, there isn't one,
That is to say, there's many,
That way, there is more fun.
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.
We know it doesn't matter,
'Cause what you came to see,
Is what we'd love to give you,
And give it 1-2-3.
But, it may come 3-2-1-2,
Or jump from 9 to 5,
And when you see the end in sight,
The beginning may arrive.
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.
Not back like in a box back,
Not back like in a race,
Not back so we can keep it,
But back in time and space.
You say we're manufactured,
To that we all agree,
So make your choice and we'll rejoice
In never being free.
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...
(Scream)
(We want The Monkees!!
We want The Monkees!!)
Gimme a "W",
Gimme an "A",
Gimme an "R",
What does it spell?

Peter: This last time it says "Hey, hey we're the..." It, wouldn't it, shouldn't 
it be "Hey, hey, we are the" again?
Jack (reading): "Hey, hey we are..." Yeah, do it that way..."Hey, hey we are 
the"
Davy: Wait a minute...Let's not do it "Hey, hey we are..." Let's "Hey, HEY! We

Mike: I don't want to do anymore. I'll see you later.
Davy (whispering): "...say we're manufactured..."
Jack: There's a couple of spots where you, you can get that, that...that

Peter: Oh, yeah...
Jack: ...in other words so it's almost as though...
Peter: ...oh not so much, um, romantic reading, okay...

Peter: Aren't I being silly enough?

Peter: "...although there isn't one."
Mike: Oh, I see...
Jack: "...although there isn't one. That is to say there's many."

at all, was it?
Jack: No...
Mike: *whew* Boy...dumb-ass, me!


Do I Have To Do This All Over Again
by Peter Tork
Do I have to do this all over again?
Didn't I do it right the first time?
Do I have to do this all over again?
How many times do I have to make this climb?
Didn't I, didn't I?
Can I see my way to know what's really real?
They say time can fix things by itself,
I know life's more than just some kind of deal,
Yeah, but don't you tell me when or where my soul comes off the shelf,
Didn't I, didn't I, oh, didn't I?
SOLO
Do I have to do this all over again?

Didn't I, oh, didn't I, oh, didn't I?

Poll
by Jack Nicholson & Robert Rafelson
"Song was pretty white."
"And I'll tell you something else, too...the same thing goes for Christmas."
Collective Gasp
"He's crazy!"
"Boys!...Don't never, but never, make fun of no cripples."
"Somebody come up and giggle at you, that's a violation of your civil rights."
"Skunk-bait, that's what the world is full of. That's what it's based on. That's 
what this economy is based on."
"Are you telling me that you don't see the connection between government and 
laughing at people?"
"Well, let me tell you one thing, son. Nobody lends money to a man with a sense 
of humor."
"Ha-ha-ha-ha..."

Porpoise Song
(Theme From "Head")
by Gerry Goffin & Carole King
My, my,
The clock in the sky is pounding away
And there's so much to say,
A face, a voice,
An overdub has no choice,
An image cannot rejoice.
Wanting to be,
To hear and to see,
Crying to the sky,
But the porpoise is laughing,
"Good-bye, good-bye,
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye."
Cliques, claques,
Riding the backs of giraffes for laughs
Is all right for a while,
The ego sings
Of castles and kings and things that go
With a life of style.
Wanting to feel,
To know what is real,
Living is a, is a lie,
The porpoise is waiting,
"Good-bye, good-bye,
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye,
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye,
Good-bye, good-bye, good-bye."

Superstitious
by Jack Nicholson & Robert Rafelson
"Sounds like a lot of supernatural boloney to me."
"Supernatural, perhaps...boloney, perhaps not."

Supplicio

Quiet, isn't it, George Michael Dolenz?
I said...

Swami-Plus Strings (Ken Thorne), Etc.
by Jack Nicholson, Robert Rafelson & Ken Thorne

"We were speaking of belief, beliefs and conditioning. All belief, possibly, 
could be said to be the result of some conditioning. Thus, the study of history 
is simply the study of one system of beliefs deposing another, and so on, and so 
on, and so on.
A psychologically tested belief of our time is that the central nervous system, 
which feeds its impulses directly to the brain, the conscious and sub-conscious, 
is unable to discern between the real and the vividly imagined experience...if 
there is a difference. And most of us believe there is.
Am I being clear? For to examine these concepts requires tremendous energy and 
discipline. To experience the now, without preconception or belief, to allow the 
unknown to occur and to occur requires clarity. But where there is clarity, 
there is no choice. And where there is choice, there is misery. But then why 
should anyone listen to me, or should I speak, since I know nothing?"
