Whole Wide World - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
When I was a young boy, my momma she said to me:
There's only one girl in the world for you
And she probably lives in Tahiti
Or maybe in the Bahamaswhere the Caribbean sea is blue
Weepin' away in the tropical nightbecause nobody's told her 'bout you
I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide worldjust to find her
I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide worldto find out where they hide her
YEAH!
Why am I hanging around in the rain out here
Tryin' to think of a girl
Why are my eyes fillin' up with these lonely tears
When there's girls all over the world?
Or is she lying on a tropical beach somewhere
Underneat the tropical sun
Hiding away in the heat wave there
Hopin' that I won't be long?I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide worldjust to find her
I'd go the whole wide world
I'd go the whole wide worldto find out where they hide her
[repeat]YEAH!I'd go the whole wide world
[repeat to fade]
