Teeny Tiny Gnome - Lyrics by Monkees

by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart
Kicking stones on an old, dirt road,
Feeling dear-dejected and all alone,
When I looked up ahead and thought my mind, I'd blown,
On a giant toadstool sat a teeny, tiny gnome.
He was all involved in a game of solitaire,
Said hello with a smile, just like I wasn't there,I kicked the dirt some more, he said, "
Please don't start a fight,"
Found a church-key in his pocket, he opened up his pipe.
He blew some silver circles,
Wound his fingers in his beard,
And from that pipe came magic music
Like I'd never heard.SOLO
As the notes came floating in, I picked up both my ears,I walked into a drive-in, hadn't felt so starved in years,A rabbit waiter took the order and quickly disappeared,
He said "
The party's over, please come back in a thousand years."
Dit-da-dit-da-dit-da-dit-da-dit-dit-da.fade out...
