Magnolia Simms - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics

By michael nesmith


Love to me is blue-eyed and blonde.
Oh, that's sweet magnolia.
Apple pie on the window still warm.
That's my sweet magnolia

Walking under a sky that's so blue
After rain has fallen.
When she's walking so close by my side
My troubles seem to just run and hide.

[la-dee, da-dum, etc.]

Well, walking under a sky that's so blue
After rain has fallen.
When she's walking so close by my side
My troubles seem to just run and hide.

Magnolia simms is my little doll.
I can't live without her.
For if she goes my world will just fall.
Stay with me, magnolia.
[sound of record skipping]
Stay with me, magnolia.
