Randy Scouse Git - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Micky Dolenz
She's a wonderful lady
And she's mine all mine
And there doesn't seem a way
That she won't come and lose my mind.
It's too easy humming songs
To a girl in yellow dress
It's been a long time since the party
And the room is in a mess.
The four kings of E.M.I.
Are sitting stately on the floor
There are birds out on the sidewalk
And a valet at the door.
He reminds me of a penguin
With few and plastered hair,
There's talcum powder on the letter
And the birthday boy is there.
Why don't you cut your hair?
Why don't you live up there?
Why don't you do what I do,
See what I feel when I care?
Now they've darkened all the windows
And the seats are naughahyde.I've been waiting for an hour,I can't find a place to hide.
The being known as Wonder Girl
Is speaking I believe.
It's not easy tryin' to tell her
That I shortly have to leave.
Why don't you be like me?
Why don't you stop and see?
Why don't you hate who I hate,
Kill who I kill to be free?SOLO [scat]
Why don't you cut your hair?
Why don't you live up there?
Why don't you do what I do,
See what I feel when I care?(
She's a wonderful lady and she's mine all mine)
Why don't you be like me? Why don't you stop and see?(
And there doesn't seem a way that she won't come and lose my mind.)
Why don't you hate who I hate, kill who I kill to be free?(
It's too easy humming songs to a girl in yellow dress)
Why don't you cut your hair? Why don't you live up there?(
It's been a long time since the party and the room is in a mess.)
Why don't you do what I do, see what I feel when I care?
