Regional Girl - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics

(micky dolenz)
Micky dolenz music (bmi)

Lead vocal: micky dolenz

She's a regional girl
Come to the big city
Give it a whirl
She thinks that she can make it
She thinks that she can take it
I think she's gonna end up makin' burgers in a basement
She's a regional girl

He's a regional guy
Come to the big city give it a try
He wants to be a mover
Yea, he wants to shake it up
I think he's gonna end up pourin' pepsi in a cup
'cause it's a regional lie
It's a regional lie

Mary mary, mississippi, indiana jones
Did you think that you could really make it on your own?
A singin' whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh
Eddie, eddie, good and ready, now you got your chance
Try to keep the little buggers playin' with your pants
A singin' whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh

It's a regional lie
The grass is always green
And the coke is purified
You wanna hit the big time
Yea, you wanna strike it rich
I think you're gonna end up bakin' burgers for some bitch

Mary mary, mississippi, indiana jones
Did you think that you could really make it on your own?
A singin' whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh
Eddie, eddie, good and ready, now you got your chance
Try to keep the little buggers playin' with your pants
A singin' whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh

It's a regional lie
The grass is always green
And the coke is purified
You wanna hit the big time
Yea, you wanna strike it rich
I think you're gonna end up bakin' burgers for some bitch
'cause it's a regional lie
It's a regional lie
