Porpoise Song
The Monkees Lyrics

My, my, the clock in the sky
Is pounding away
And there's so much to say

A face, a voice
An overdub has no choice
An image cannot rejoice

Wanting to be
To hear and to see
Crying to the sky

But the porpoise is laughing
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Clicks, clacks, riding the backs of giraffes for laughs
S'alright for a while

(The ego) sings of castles
And kings and things that go
With a life of style

Wanting to feel
To know what is real
Living is a, is a lie

The porpoise is waiting
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

Steve Mikre

Micky Dolenz is simply one of the great rock vocalist of our time...

Brian King



I'm not sure he is up there with Freddie, but he is one of my favorites. And great in this song. I think Davey had a terrific singing voice too. For a bunch of guys who they said weren't really musicians, they sure were awesome musicans.

David King

Wonderful song. I love Micky on 'As We Go Along'. Incredible singing.

Christy B

I agree!

KD 68

THIS should be the song everyone remembers from the Monkees.


It is.

Pete Jones

Red Spinifex
