Goldilocks Sometime - Lyrics by Monkees


Smiling a painted smile for awhile
Ragidy ann and i walk along
Under the painted sky
Funny how time is flying

Alice in wonderland
Would you minds
If i just hold your hand for awhile
Maybe you'll understand when i say

Hello cinderella
I believe their playing our song
It certainly has been lovely
But i've got to be getting along

So goldilocks for a while
Would you mind
Smiling your perfect smile
You and i walking the painted road
Going where time won't follow

Yes little red riding hood
Isn't it perfectly understood
When i say
Living a storybook is better than
Waiting for tomorrow
