Here we come, walking down the street
We get the funniest looks from everyone we meet.

Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we're too busy singing
To put anybody down.

You know that we want to
Do what we like to do,
The only time we get restless
Is around something new

Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we're too busy singing
To put anybody down.

We're just trying to be friendly
So come and Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we're too busy singing
To put anybody down.

Anytime or anywhere, just look over your shoulder
Because we'll be standing there.

Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we're too busy singing
To put anybody down.

Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we're too busy singing
To put anybody down.

We're just trying to be friendly,
So come and Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
And people say we monkey around,
But we're too busy singing
To put anybody down.

Hey, hey, we're the Monkees!

    General Comment:when listening to the song i find that the actual words are:

    We're just trying to be friendly,
    So come and singa and play
    we are the young generation
    and we've got something to say

    i love this song

    General Comment:Second verse:

    We go wherever we want to
    Do what we want to do,
    And anytime we get restless
    There's always something new

    and then

    We're just trying to be friendly
    So come and watch us sing and play
    We're the young generation
    And we've got something to say

    My Opinion:I really like this song, especially the line
    "But we're too busy singin
    To put anybody down"
    I know I probably sound like a hippie, but I think that if we all were too busy to put anybody down, the world would a better place.

    General Comment:They're saying "hey we're innocent and friendly, honest!" Then when you're not looking they murder your puppy.
