"The Monkees" Theme

Words & Music:

Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart


        Am                     F

Here we come, walkin' down the street.

                    D                      G

We get the funniest looks from everyone we meet.



                    C  C7       F             G        C  C7

Hey, hey, we're the Monkees and people say we monkey around.

    C         C7              F      G    Am

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.


CHORUS:  [ending on A]



                        D   D7    G             A        D  D7

We're just trying to be friendly, come watch us sing and play

                     D  D7     G         A            Bm   E

We're the young generation and we've got something to say, oh...!


Anytime or anywhere.

Just look over your shoulder, 'cause we'll be standing there
