Tear Drop City - Lyrics by Monkees


About as low as i felt in a long time
And i know that i did a wrong at the wrong time
It's plain to see, she's down on me
And i know she'll feel that way for a long time

I was high on top but i didn't know it
Tell me, why did i have to go and blow it?
I used my lines too many times
And now i've got a badly hurt heart to show it

Took me too long to discover
How much i really love her
How'd i ever end up in this bind?
What a drag

There she goes looking for pretty clover
No one knows what it's like until it over
Without a doubt, i just found out
And i suppose i never did get to know her

Tear drop city, tear drop city

Took me to long to discover
How much i really love her
How'd i ever end up in this bind
What a drag

About as low as i felt in a long time...
