You Cant Tie A Mustang Down - Lyrics by Monkees


Lyrics
by Jeff Barry
I'm a young man, baby,
And a young man I must be,I've got to live young, baby,
And love young, baby,
And see what I can see.
So remember that you can't tie a mustang down,
No, you can't tie a mustang down,
And you can't keep an ocean in a cup,
Whoa, no, you can't tie a mustang down...or up.
Now I only got one heart, baby,
And I'm gonna keep it hid,
Oh, by the way that I hold you
You might think I love you, But I never said I did.
So don't impose your will upon me,I can't stand the sound of chains,
Oh, don't try to tame me
Or blame me or name me,
Oh, baby, ease up on the reins.
And remember that you can't tie a mustang down,
No, you can't tie a mustang down,
Oh, you can't put an ocean in a cup,
Whoa, no, you can't tie a mustang down...or up.I'm a young man, baby,
And a young man I must be,I've got to live young, baby,
And love young, baby,
And see what I can see.
So remember that you can't tie a mustang down,
No, you can't tie a mustang down,
Oh, you can't keep an ocean in a cup,
Whoa, no, you can't tie a mustang down...or up.(
Whoa, no!)
You can't tie a mustang down,
You can't tie a mustang down,
You can't keep an ocean in a cup,
Whoa, no, you can't tie a mustang down...or up.fade out...
