"Randy Scouse Git" as written by and Micky Dolenz....
She's a wonderful lady and she's mine, all mine
And there doesn't seem a way that she won't come and lose my mind
It's too easy humming songs to a girl in a yellow dress
It's been a long time since the party and the room is in a mess

The four kings of emi are sitting stately on the floor
There are birds out on the sidewalk and a valet at the door
He reminds me of a penguin with few and plastered hair
There's talcum powder on the letter and the birthday boy is there

Why don't you cut your hair?
Why don't you live up there?
Why don't you do what I do, see what I feel when I care?

Now they've darkened all the windows and the seats are naugh-a-hyde
I've been waiting for an hour
I can't find a place to hide
The being known as wonder girl
Is speaking, I believe
It's not easy trying to tell her
That I shortly have to leave

Why don't you be like me?
Why don't you stop and see?
Why don't you hate who I hate,
Kill who I kill to be free?

Why don't you cut your hair?
Why don't you live up there?
Why don't you do what I do,
See what I feel when I care?

Why don't you be like me? (she's a wonderful lady)
Why don't you stop and see? (and she's mine, all mine)
Why don't you hate who I hate, (and there doesn't seem a way)
Kill who I kill to be free? (that she won't come and lose my mind)
Why don't you cut your hair? (it's too easy humming songs)
Why don't you live up there? (to a girl in a yellow dress)
Why don't you do what I do, (it's been a long time since the party)
See what I feel when I care? (and the room is in a mess)

    General CommentCrazy song but it is catchy.The part where he says 'the four kings' he is actually talking about the Beatles.

    General Commentit's actually quite self-explanatory.

    they're obviously tired of being pushed around and after all they've done for these people (record companies, fans), they're still treated like the red-headed step child.

    it's probably ONE of my favorite monkee songs.

    General Commenti take it as a pretty pissed off song about record labels, and the distance between who the monkees were and who people expected them to be

    General CommentIn his book Micky explains it as a kind of free-association song about his experience of visiting Englad for the first time. "Wonderful lady" is his first wife, Samantha Juste. "Girl is Yellow dress" is a reference to Mama Cass Elliot. Micky didn't even know the meaning of the title words when he penned it!

    General CommentAhh! Record labels! That makes more sense.
    I always assumed it was about a guy who was totally henpecked all the time. Cuz the chorus seems very nag-nag-nag to me, and "the being known as wondergirl" (like a self-important woman who can't be contradicted.)

    General CommentBecause of the sexual innuendo of the name of the song, it was released as "Alternative Title" in the UK.

    General CommentMicky Dolenz picked up the song title "Randy Scouse Git" from a insult used by Alf Garnett in the BBC sitcom "Til Death Do Us Part". Unfortunately he little idea what it meant but was asked by his record company in the UK to find an alternate title because it would offend in the country. He either couldn't or couldn't be bothered to come up with a new name for the song and eventually the alternate title stuck. "Til Death Do Us Part" was later re-made in the USA as "Keep It in the Family"
