What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round
The Monkees Lyrics


Just a loud mouth Yankee I went down to Mexico
I didn't have much time to spend, about a week or so
There I lightly took advantage of a girl who loved me so
But I found myself a-thinkin' when the time had come to go

What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be ridin' on that train to San Antone
What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
She took me to the garden just for a little walk
I didn't know much Spanish and there was no time for talk
Then she told me that she loved me not with words but with a kiss
And like a fool I kept on thinkin' of a train I could not miss

What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be ridin' on that train to San Antone
What am I doin' hangin' 'round?

Well, it's been a year or so, and I want to go back again
And if I get the money, well, I'll ride the same old train
But I guess your chances come but once and boy I sure missed mine
And still I can't stop thinkin' when I hear some whistle cryin'

What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be ridin' on that train to San Antone
What am I doin' hangin' 'round?

What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be ridin' on that train to San Antone
What am I doin' hangin' 'round?

What am I doin' hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be ridin' on that train to San Antone
What am I doin' hangin' 'round?

Paul Bradford Songs

The best Monkee in my book. His hand in the creation of country/rock still goes unnoticed by the masses. It wasn't just Dylan, or Parsons, or the Byrds. Mike Nesmith was as much a part of its creation than anyone.

Renné Edwards

Yes!!! I like Country Rock due to Mike. 💯🎶🔥💙

Richelle Dickerson

TRUTH.

Kenneth Henry

You are so right. He’s been shamefully overlooked

Larry Toothbrush

I've said for 20 years, The Monkees were the original alt country band.
