She - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
Words and music by
Tommy boyce and bobby hart
She, she told me that she loved me,
And like a fool I believed her from the start.
She, she said she'd never hurt me,
But then she turned around and broke my heart
Why am I standing here,
Missing her and wishing she were here.
She only did me wrong;I'm better off alone.
She, she devoured all my sweet love,
Took all I had and then she fed me dirt.
She, she laughed while I was cryin'.
It was such a joke to see the way it hurt.
Why am I standing here,
Missing her and wishing she were here.
She only did me wrong;I'm better off alone.
And now I know just why she
Keeps me hangin' ’round.
She needs someone to walk on,
So her feet don't touch the ground.
But I love her,I need her,I want her.
Yea! yea! yea! yea! yea! yea! she!
[instrumental]
Why am I standing here,
Missing her and wishing she were here.
She only did me wrong now;I'm better off alone.
Why am I missing her? I should be kissing her.
[repeat and fade last two lines]
