Words
The Monkees Lyrics


Girl, don't you know every time I see you smiling,
(It hurts so bad, 'cause when I see you, I start crying,
I've tried everything to stop, but there's no denying,
That falling in love with you, girl, is just like dying

Oh, don't walk away,
Oh, how can I make you stay?
Don't turn away,
I can still hear you saying those words that never were true,
Just spoken to help nobody but you,
Words with lies inside,
But, small enough to hide till your playing was through

Girl, don't you know we could work it out with talking?
You won't look around or slow down your walking,
I've given you everything with kiss to seal it,
You had to get your kicks out of trying to steal it

Now, I'm standing here,
Strange, strange voices in my ears,
I feel the tears,
But, all I can hear are those words that never were true, just spoken to help nobody but you
Words with lies inside,
But, small enough to hide till your playing was through, ah

Now, I'm standing here,
Strange, strange voices in my ears,
I feel the tears,
But, all I can hear are those words that never were true,
Just spoken to help nobody but you,
Words with lies inside,
But, small enough to hide till your playing was through
Words that never were true, just spoken to help nobody but you,
Words with lies inside,
But, small enough to hide till your playing was through
Words that never were true, just spoken to help nobody but you

They were much better than got credit for...these guys were talented musicians and deserve more than they received from critics. They were fantastic and showed everyone what they could do...

@Lady Laraine Well, Milli Vannili PARTLY brought their downfall on themselves. They were frauds who sold millions of records and got rich off of a total lie until they were exposed. Also, your notion about them being just a comedy group is one of the dumbest excuses I’ve ever heard. They were marketed as a legitimate pop duo.

That's Funny

Michael was great musically.
Pete was also.
I feel like it's possible the other 2 learned while on set

Timothy J. Horan

They were.

I think as time went on the critics started to give them more credit that they previously received.... Maybe the older critics passed away and a younger group of critics sprung up...

​@Darren Mills Kudos, someone who got that right. I've heard and read the same.
Got all 3 biographies, and all 3 have similar stories. (Peter didn't write one-RIP.)
The story that kills me (most) is that Mike was independently wealthy and didn't need to do the show. That is not true by a long shot. His mother died in May 1980 and that is when he inherited her fortune from the invention of Liquid Paper.

@mary spencer He strains on purpose during the run out, but it sounds “authentic and passionate” so.., good.

Yep, not an easy part melodically or timing wise.
