Goin’ down

The Monkees – Goin’ Down (1967)

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 the word gets ’round
Goin’ down
Goin’ down

Coming’ 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
Goin’ down

I wish I had another drink
It wouldn’t be so hard to sink
I should have taken time to think
Besides I got the picture straight
She must have 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
I’m goin’ down

And now I see the life I led
I slept it all away in bed
I should have learned to swim instead
And now it’s really got me stumped
I can’t believe 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 wish I looked before I leaped
I didn’t know it was so deep
Been down so far I don’t get wet
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 want to 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 pappy taught me how to float
But I can’t swim a single note
He threw me in to teach me how
I stayed there floatin’ like a mama cow
And now I’ve floated way down stream
I know this has to be a dream
If I could find my way to shore
I’d never, never do this anymore
I’ll give you three, I’ve been down nine
I’m goin’ down just one more time.
Goin’ down.
Goin’ down.

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

You really got a hold on me

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – You really got a hold on me

I don’t like you
but I love you
Seems that I’m always thinking of you
Oh, oh, oh you treat me badly
I love you madly

You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
Baby

I don’t want you
but I need you
Don’t wanna kiss you
but I need you
Oh, oh, oh, you do me wrong now
My love is strong now

You really got to hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
You really got to hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
Baby
I love you and all I want you to do is just
Hold me, hold me, hold me, hold me
Tighter
tighter

I wanna leave you
Don’t wanna stay here
Don’t wanna spend another day here
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna split now
I can’t quit now

You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
Baby
I love you and all I want you to do is just
Hold (me/) please (/Hold)
Sqeeze
Hold me, hold me

You really got a hold on me (You really got a hold on me)
I said you really got a hold on me (I said you really got a holdon me)
You know you really got a hold on me…

the questions, but no answers

 

The Monkees
música – Daily Nightly
álbum – Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd(1967)

 

 

 

Daily Nightly

Darkened rolling figures move through prisms of no color
Hand in hand, they walk the night, but never know each other
Passion cast in neon lights light up the jewelled trav’ler
Who, lost in scenes of smoke-filled dreams
Find questions, but no answers

Startled eyes that sometimes see phantasmagoric splendor
Pirouhette down palsied paths with pennies for the vendor
Salvation’s yours for just the time it takes to pay the dancer
Once again, such anxious men find questions but no answers

The night has gone and taken its infraction
While reddened eyes hope there will be a next one
Terror signs look down upon a world that glitters glibly
And mountainsides put arms around the unsuspecting city

Second hands that minds have slowed are moving even faster
Toward bring down someone who’s found
The questions, but no answers

 

apple tree

As Long As There’s An Apple Tree

As long as there’s an apple tree
There’ll be apple pie
And what is meant to be will be
Who teaches birds how to fly

Here in this world
Where so few things endure
Look around me
There still are things that are constant and sure
Love that’s faithful and true
Will go on forever

As long as there’s an apple tree
There’ll be apple pie
And what is meant to be will be
Who teaches birds how to fly

How many times
Have you looked at a rose?
Think it over can you explain
How it blooms and it grows?
You just know that it’s there
Like I know I love you

Who teaches birds how to fly
Who teaches they [Incomprehensible] survive

As long as there’s an apple tree
There’ll be apple pie
As long as there’s a you and me
Love can never die

As long as there’s an apple tree
There’ll be apple pie
