Writing Wrongs - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics

By michael nesmith


Did you know the water's turning yellow?
Have you heard the sky was falling down?
Did you see that guy fall out the window?
Did you know the circus was in town?

Have you heard about bill chamber's mother?
She said, "a woman's work is never done."
And, oh yes, about that yellow water,
Have you noticed the color of the sun?

You have a way of making everything you say seem unreal.
Are you aware that the people who care are mostly stainless steel?

[instrumental interlude]

Well, i hope you finally got my letter.
It should have come about this time last year.
And i hope bill chamber's mother's better.
Oh, dear! the moon's just disappeared.

You have a way of making everything you say seem unreal.
Are you aware that the people who care are mostly stainless steel?
