"Cuddly Toy" as written by and Harry Edward Nilsson....
La la la la
You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy
You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night
And gave up without a fight
You're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

You're not the kind of girl to tell your mother
The kind of company you keep
I never told you not to love no other
You must of dreamed it in your sleep

You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy
You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night
And gave up without a fight
You're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

you're not the kind of girl to tell your mother
The kind of company you keep
I never told you not to love no other
You must of dreamed it in your sleep

You're not only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy
You're not the only choo-choo train that was left out in the rain
The day after Santa came
You're not the only cherry delight that was left out in the night
And gave up without a fight
You're not the only cuddly toy that was ever enjoyed by any boy

La la la la

    General CommentI started really liking the Monkees when I was in 1st grade (1986). Of course back then I never understood songs, I just like to listen to the beat and whatnot, and the lyrics were just silly to me. So now as an adult I listen to these songs again, and I'm like, woah! This song is so sleezy! It's all about using a girl and then telling her, hey, you're not the only one I've used or that any man has used. It's really interesting too how the song is so bouncy and sounds so innocent, until you listen to the words. Such is the genius of the monkees.

    General CommentI was very surprised to learn that this song is about a gang bang. You may think I'm kidding, but it was in some Rhino liner notes.

    General CommentBeing the origins of The Monkees was under TV censorship as opposed to the other bands/artists, they were the kings of sneaking things through. Another note about the music style of this song, they started doing a track per album with this old vaudeville/music hall style sound from albums 3, 4, 5 and 6.
