If I Learned To Play The Violin - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Joey Levine & Artie Resnick
If I learned to play the violin
And I traded my old guitar in,
Would your parents still object,
Or would I win their respect
If I learned to play the violin?I would even go and cut my hair
Though my friends would point and say I'm square,
Girl, would your society
Still look down their nose at me
If I learned to play the violin?I'd give up my beat-ways,
Take up more discreet ways,
All you've got to do is ask me to,
Whoa-oa, just ask me to
And I'd learn to play the violin,
Turn my back on everything I've been,I'd be like somebody new,
But, not change my love for you
If I learned to play the violin.SOLOI'd give up my beat-ways,
Take up more discreet ways,
All you've got to do is ask me to,
Whoa-oa, just ask me to.
And I'd learn to play the violin,
Yes, I'd learn to play the violin,
And I'd learn to play the violin,
Yes, I'd learn to play the violin.fade out...
