The girl i knew somewhere by Monkees
Words and Music by John C. Stewart
- peak Billboard position #1 in 1967
Oh I could hide 'neath the wings of the bluebird as she sings
The six o'clock alarm would never ring
But it rings and I rise, wipe the sleep out of my eyes
My shaving razor's cold and it stings
Cheer up, sleepy Jean, oh what can it mean
To a daydream believer and a homecoming queen?
You once thought of me as a white knight on a steed
Now you know how happy I can be
Oh, and our good time starts and ends
With a dollar one to spend
But how much baby do we really need?
Repeat CHORUS twice
Repeat CHORUS twice again.
Here is a little titbit
about the Monkey's DAYDREAM BELIEVER. There are two versions of
the same recording, the one is this above and another that includes a few
seconds of banter among the Monkeys before the song started.
Here it is...J for Davy Jones, N for Mike Nesmith (his mother
was the inventor of Liquid Paper BTW), D for Mikey Dolenz and
T for Peter Tork:
J: What number was that again?
J: OK, OK I mean don't get excited guys, just cause I'm a sure
Then into the song as above.
