Tapioca Tundra
The Monkees Lyrics

Reasoned verse some prose or rhyme
Lose themselves in other times
And waiting hopes cast silent spells
That speak in clouded clues
It cannot be a part of me
For now it's part of you
Sunshine, rag time, blowing in the breeze

Midnight looks right standing more at ease
Silhouettes and figures stay
Close to what he had to say
And one more time the faded dream
Is saddened by the news
It cannot be a part of me
For not it's a part of you

RIP Mike Nesmith. Brilliant writer.

Jeffrey Johnson

This  is my second favorite Monkees song. Door into Summer is my favorite. Michael Nesmith is a truly talented lyric writer.

Mark McIntosh

You have good taste in music👍 I had all these albums growing up

Jesus Vidal



I couldn't agree with you more, Jeffery. ! Same here. But Papa Gene's Blues still gets me to the core any time I hear it. Same with What Am I Doin' Hanging 'Round. Love this man!

I love the message of this song it pretty much states that the things you love become a part of you even though the people that made them lost interest or may no longer live. you can carry it with you into the future thank you so much Mike.

Me and my dad where searching through the attic and we found a huge box of old 45 records in there. I played around with them on my record player and I found this song and I fell in love with it!

Dean Allen

I had this 45 brand new when I was in first grade. Played it to death!


I like Mike's vocals. He's great

Glenn Page Music

@Joyce Anthony No he doesn't. He exhales loudly.
