Ceiling In My Room - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by David Jones, Don De
Mieri & Robert Dick
I'm a millionaire
Without a care in the world,I have played the game,I've made the grade, I've shown them all.I'm a teenage idol just starting a tune,
No, it's just the ceiling in my room.I have got more friends
Than I've ever had before,
But, are all these friends
Like the ones I knew before?
Hey, look, there's my old schoolmates there at my back door,
No, it's just the ceiling in my room. If I could only be part
Of the things that I see,I'd trade all the wealth and fame You've given to me, Oh, I want to be free. But, no matter what My future may bring,I always will remember Just one simple thing.
That when all my visions contain only gloom,I know it's just the ceiling in my room, my room, my room.
La-da-ta, la-da-ta, da-da-da-da-da-ta-ta
La-da-da, la-da-da, da-da-daah.fade out...
