"Listen To The Band" as written by and Michael Nesmith....
Hey, hey, mercy woman plays a song and no one listens
I need help, I'm falling again

Play the drum a little louder
Tell me I can live without her
If I only listen to the band

Listen to the band

Weren't they good, they made me happy
I think I can make it alone

Oh, mercy, woman plays a song and no one listens
I need help, I'm falling again

Play the drum a little bit louder
Tell them they can live without her
If they only listen to the band

Listen to the band

Now weren't they good, they made me happy
I think I can make it alone

Oh, woman plays a song and no one listens
I need help I'm falling again

Come on, play the drums just a little bit louder
Tell us we can live without her
Now that we have listened to the band

Listen to the band

    General CommentI've always thought this song stuck out like a sore thumb compared to all other Monkee's songs; it just doesn't seem to fit. It's not a bad song, though it took a while for it to "grow on me".
