I Can't Get Her Off My Mind
by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
I've been standing on the corner all day,
Trying to think of little things to say,
'Cause she walks by every day about this time,
And I don't think I'll ever get her off of my mind.
Well, I only met her about a week ago,
But, the way she smiles lets me know
That she could see that maybe we were two-of-a-kind,
And I don't think I'll ever get her off of my mind.
Oh, she's so pretty,
I couldn't believe she'd ever look my way,
But the way I'm feeling,
I'm going to be stealing that little girl's heart today.
Well, I'm so happy I could almost fly,
And I guess you know the reason why,
I'm walking down the street with her little hand in mine,
And I don't think I'll ever get her off of my mind.
Oh, she's so pretty,
I couldn't believe she'd ever look my way,
But the way I'm feeling,
I'm going to be stealing that little girl's heart today.
Well, I'm so happy I could almost fly,
And I guess you know the reason why,
I'm walking down the street with her little hand in mine,
And I don't think I'll ever get her off of my mind,
And I don't think I'll ever get her off of my mind.

Early Morning Blues And Greens
by Diane Hilderbrand & Jack Keller
A distant nightbird mocks the sun,
I wake as I have always done,
To freshly-scented sycamore,
And cold, bare feet on hardwood floor.
My steaming coffee warms my face,
I'm disappointed in the taste,
But, there's a peace the early brings
The morning world of growing things.
SOLO
I feel the moments hurry on,
It was today, it's died away,
And now it is forever gone.
And I will drink my coffee slow,
And I will watch my shadow grow,
And disappear in firelight,
And sleep alone again tonight.

For Pete's Sake
by Peter Tork & Joseph Richards
Love is understanding,
Don't you know that this is true?
Love is understanding,
It's in everything we do.
In this generation,
In this loving time,
In this generation,
We will make the world shine.
We were born to love one another,
This is something we all need,
We were born to love one another,
We must be what we're going to be,
And what we have to be is free.
In this generation,
In this loving time,
In this generation,
We will make the world shine.
We were born to love one another,
This is something we all need,
We were born to love one another,
We must be what we're going to be,
And what we have to be is free.
Love is understanding, (In this generation)
We gotta be free,
Love is understanding, (In this generation)
We gotta be free,
In this generation, (In this generation)
Love is understanding,
We gotta be free, (In this generation)
We gotta be free,
We gotta be free,
We gotta be free.

Forget That Girl
by Douglas Farthing Hatlelid
Forget that girl,
She'll only make you sad someday,
Forget that girl,
She'll never make you happy,
Stay away from her, my friend, stay away from her.
Forget that girl,
She'll only bring you down again,
Forget that girl,
She'll only make you lonely,
Stay away from her, my friend, stay away from her.
There was a time when she could really love you,
When she was thinking only of you,
But, now she's put herself above you,
And there's nothing you can do.
Forget that girl,
Even though you find it's hard,
Forget that girl,
Even though you love her,
She's in love with him, my friend, she's in love with him,
Oh yeah, she's in love with him.
Forget that girl, (Forget that girl)
Forget that girl, (Forget that girl)
Forget that girl, (Forget that girl)
Forget that girl, (Forget that girl)
Forget that girl, (Forget that girl)
Forget that girl, (Forget that girl)
Forget that girl. (Forget that girl)

I'll Spend My Life With You
by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
People come and people go,
Moving fast and moving slow,
I'm in a crowd, yet I'm all alone.
The road is long, the road is rough,
I do believe I've had enough,
I'm gonna turn around, head for home.
And I hope you're there,
And you still care,
And, if you do,
I'll spend my life with you.
I've had all the time I need
To rearrange my mind and lead
The life I thought I wanted yesterday.
I played a game that couldn't last,
And now some memories from the past
Have turned my thoughts around a different way.
And, girl, I find,
You're still on my mind,
And, if you want me to,
I'll spend my life with you.
SOLO
And, girl, I find,
You're still on my mind,
And, if you want me to,
I'll spend my life with you.

Mr. Webster
by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
Everyone in town knew Mr. Webster,
He worked at the bank for forty years,
And each week Mr. Frisby made his check out
For sixty-eight dollars, clear.
And through the years he thwarted twenty-seven robberies,
Each time Frisby promised him a raise.
They gave a retirement party for Mr. Webster,
Everyone from the bank was there,
They had a cake and flowers ordered special,
And Frisby had a speech prepared.
And a little white box that held a watch with this inscription:
"To Mr. Webster, With Regards".
Then came the telegram from Mr. Webster,
Said, "Sorry, STOP, Cannot attend,
I've flown away and taken all your money,
Wish you were here to help me spend."
And one by one all the people left the party,
And Mr. Frisby locked the door.

No Time
by Hank Cicalo
Hobber, reeber, sabosoben, hobber, seeber, sneck,
Seeber, rabber, hobbersoben, what did you expect?
No time, (No time, no time at all)
No time for you. (No time, no time at all)
I got no time, baby,
Got lots of better things to do. (No time, no time at all)
Running from the rising heat to find a place to hide,
The grass is always greener growing on the other side.
No time, (No time, no time at all)
Ah, no time for you. (No time, no time at all)
I got no time, baby,
Got lots of better things to do. (No time, no time at all)
Rock on, George for Ringo, one time...

FIRST SOLO

Ahhh...there's just NO time...
No time, (No time, no time at all)
No time for you. (No time, no time at all)
I got no time, baby,
Got lots of better things to do. (No time, no time at all)
SECOND SOLO
No time, (No time, no time at all)
No time for you. (No time, no time at all)
I got no time, baby,
Got lots of better things to do. (No time, no time at all)
Try to tell the world, somehow, of how I feel
Tell me what you said again, I can't believe it's real
No time, (No time, no time at all)
I got no time for you. (No time, no time at all)
I got no time, baby,
Got lots of better things to do. (No time, no time at all)
Andy, you're a dandy, you don't seem to make no sense,
Nevermind the furthermore, the plea is self-defense
No time, (No time, no time at all)
Got no time for you. (No time, no time at all)
I got no time, baby,
Got lots of better things to do. (No time, no time at all)

Randy Scouse Git
by Micky Dolenz
She's a wonderful lady and she's mine, all mine,
And there doesn't seem a way that she won't come and lose my mind,
It's too easy humming songs to a girl in yellow dress,
It's been a long time since the party and the room is in a mess.
The four kings of EMI are sitting stately on the floor,
There are birds out on the sidewalk and a valet at the door,
He reminds me of a penguin, with few and plastered hair,
There's talcum powder on the letter and the birthday boy is there.
Why don't you cut your hair?
Why don't you live up there?
Why don't you do what I do, see what I feel when I care?
Now they've darkened all the windows and the seats are naugahide,
I've been waiting for an hour, I can't find a place to hide,
The being known as "Wonder Girl", is speaking, I believe,
It's not easy trying to tell her that I shortly have to leave.
Why don't you be like me?
Why don't you stop and see?
Why don't you hate who I hate, kill who I kill to be free?
SOLO
Why don't you cut your hair?
Why don't you live up there?
Why don't you do what I do, see what I feel when I care?
Why don't you be like me?
(She's a wonderful lady and she's mine, all mine)
Why don't you stop and see?
Why don't you hate who I hate,
(And there doesn't seem a way that she won't come and lose my mind)
Kill who I kill to be free?
Why don't you cut your hair?
(It's too easy humming songs to a girl in yellow dress)
Why don't you live up there?
Why don't you do what I do,
(It's been a long time since the party and the room is in a mess)
See what I feel when I care?

Shades Of Gray
by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil
When the world and I were young,
Just yesterday,
Life was such a simple game,
A child could play.
It was easy then to tell right from wrong,
Easy then to tell weak from strong,
When a man should stand and fight
Or just go along.
But, today there is no day or night,
Today there is no dark or light,
Today there is no black or white,
Only shades of gray.
I remember when the answer
Seemed so clear,
We had never lived with doubt
Or tasted fear.
It was easy then to tell truth from lies,
Selling-out from compromise,
Who to love and who to hate,
The foolish from the wise.
But, today there is no day or night,
Today there is no dark or light,
Today there is no black or white,
Only shades of gray.
SOLO
It was easy then to know what was fair,
When to keep and when to share,
How much to protect your heart
And how much to care.
But, today there is no day or night,
Today there is no dark or light,
Today there is no black or white,
Only shades of gray,
Only shades of gray.

Sunny Girlfriend
by Michael Nesmith
She owns and operates her own sunshine factory,
Of painting smiles on dolls and then on me,
She's my sunny girlfriend and personality.
Well, she's got a book that tells about everybody's past,
And she can make it slow while making your mind move fast,
She's my sunny girlfriend and she is never last.
Oh, while I am sleeping,
Then she comes creeping
Into my thoughts at night,
Gazing down through eyes as bright as wonder.
She can send you on your way to everywhere,
She's only started after you think that she is there,
Oh, she's my sunny girlfriend, and she just doesn't care,
Yeah, she's my sunny girlfriend, she doesn't really care.

You Just May Be The One
by Michael Nesmith
All men must have someone, have someone
Who would never take advantage of a love bright as the sun,
Someone to understand them,
And you just may be the one.
All men must have someone, have someone
Who would never take for granted all the pleasures and the fun,
Someone to stand beside them,
And you just may be the one.
I saw when you walked by
The lovelight in your eyes,
I knew I must try
To win you more than as a friend,
I'm starting near the end,
And here I go again.
All men must have someone, have someone
Who would never take advantage of a love bright as the sun,
Someone to stand beside them,
And you just may be the one.
Someone to understand them,
And you just may be the one.

You Told Me
by Michael Nesmith

You told me you'd always stay, you told me,
You told me you'd never stray, you told me,
All these things you said, you said sincerely,
Still, I am leaving you in spite of what you told me.
I've heard things that did not match what you told me,
And of your love that would not last as you told me,
Forewarned is forearmed, it hurts, I'm leaving,
I may be wrong I can't love what I'm just hearing.
Times have made me shy
Of all the things you're saying,
Times have made me shy
Of girls and all the games that they are playing.
Someday, I may see the truth of what you told me,
I may find I left too soon and that you told me,
Only things that you were honestly feeling,
But, I must have more to love than what you told me,
(I must have more to love than what you told me)
Yes, I must have more to love than what you told me,
(I must have more to love than what you told me)
Yes, I must have more to love than what you told me.
