What Am I Doin Hangin Round - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
Just a loud mouth yankee I went down to mexico.I didn't have much time to spend, about a week or so.
There I lightly took advantage of a girl who loved me so.
But I found myself a-thinkin' when the time had come to go...
Chorus:
What am I doin' hangin' round? I should be on that train and gone.I should be ridin' on that train to san antone,
What am I doin' hangin' round? She took me to the garden just for a little walk.I didn't know much spanish and there was no time for talk.
Then she told me that she loved me not with words but with a kiss.
And like a fool I kept on thinkin' of a train I could not miss...
Chorus
Well it's been a year or so, and I want to go back again.
And if I get the money, well I'll ride the same old train.
But I guess your chances come but once and boy I sure missed mine.
And still I can't stop thinkin' when I hear some whistle cryin'....
Chorus (repeat)
