Come On In - Lyrics by Monkees

Come on in,
You sure look good to me.
Come on in,I've learned how lonely I can be.I guess we'll never know just what went wrong
You know it's been a whole year has passed us by and gone.
But we're back together now where we belong
So, baby, come on in.
Come on in,I heard your footstep on the stair.
Come on in,I'd know it anywhere.
Your old chair in the corner is justa sitting there waiting.
It's been a long time anticipating.
What a long time it's been.
So, baby, come on in.
Over and over I've told myself
I said, son, you've got to lose these blues.
Get ready for the day when she'll walk in the door.
So I dusted off your housecoat and I polished up your shoes.
Come on in,
You know your welcome here.
Aw, come on in,
It's been a long, long year.
Now I know why I waited around
I wouldn't run around town, let them put me down.I knew that if I waited I would win.
So, baby, come on in.
Come on in,
Come on in,
Aw, come in.
