Goin' down Lyrics

Goin' down by Monkees  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Goin' down Sock it to me.

Floatin down the river
With a saturated liver
And I wish I could forgive her
But I do believe she meant it
When she told me to forget it
And I bet she will regret it
When they find me in the morning wet and drowned
And words goes round
Goin down
Goin down

Comin up for air
It's pretty stuffy under there
I'd like to say I didn't care
But I forgot to leave a note
And it's so hard to stay afloat
I'm soakin wet without a boat
And I knew I should have taken off my shoes
It's front page news
Goin down
I'm goin down

Hep hep,
hep hep,
hep,
hep hep,
hep hep

I wish I had another drink
It wouldn't be so hard to sink
I should have taken time to think
Beside I got the picture straight
She musta had another date
I didn't need this extra weight
I wish that I could see the way to shore
Don't want no more
Goin down
Goin down

Now I see the life I lead
I slept it all away in bed
I shoulda learned to swim instead
Now it's really got me stumped
I can't believe or why I jumped
I'd like to get my tummy pumped
I can't believe they drink this stuff in town
This dirty brown
Goin down
Goin down

I should have looked before I leaped
I didn't know it was so deep
Been down so far I don't get wet
I haven't touched the bottom yet
This river scene is gettin old
I'm hungry sleepy wet and cold
She told me to forget it nice
I should have taken her advice
I only wanna go on home
I'd gladly leave that girl alone
What a way to spend the night
If I don't drown I'll die of fright
My papy taught to float
But I can't swin a single note
He threw me in to teach me how
And I stayed there floating like a mama cow
And now I'm floating way down stream
I know this has to be a dream
If I could find my way to shore
I'd never ever do this any more
I'll give you three, I've been down nine
I'm goin down just one more time
Goin Down

I'm goin down...etc

Now the sky is gettin' light
An everything will be alright
Think I finally got the knack
Just floatin' here lazy on my back
I never really liked that town
I think I'll ride the river down
Just movin' slow and floatin' free
There's a river swingin' under me.
Waving back to the folks on shore
I should have thought of this before
I'm floatin' on down to New Orleans
Goin' to pick up on some swingin' scenes
I know I'll know a better day
I'll go down groovin' all the way
Goin' down
Goin' down
