Your Auntie Grizelda
The Monkees Lyrics


She knows her mind all right, your auntie Grizelda,
She says she knows my kind, she might, maybe so
Oh, yeah, she's raised you right, your auntie Grizelda,
You only know the things she wants you to know

I know she's having a fit,
She doesn't like me a bit,
No bird of grace ever lit on auntie Grizelda

You can't begrudge her style, your auntie Grizelda,
She couldn't budge a smile and do it for free
So righteous making fudge, your auntie Grizelda,
So proper judging others over her tea

You look just like her you do,
I know by looking at you,
That you've been listening to your auntie Grizelda

Oh, no, don't look at me like auntie Grizelda
It takes much more to be someone of your own
You've got to make it free from auntie Grizelda
Or just like her you'll have to make it alone

I know she's having a fit,
She doesn't like me a bit,
No bird of grace ever lit on auntie Grizelda

Auntie Grizelda, auntie Grizelda
Auntie Grizelda, auntie Grizelda

She knows her mind alright, your Auntie Grizelda
She says she knows my kind, she might, maybe so
Oh, yeah, she's raised you right, your Auntie Grizelda
You only know the things she wants you to know

I know she's havin' a fit
She doesn't like me a bit
No bird of grace ever lit on Auntie Grizelda

You can't begrudge her style, your Auntie Grizelda
She couldn't budge a smile and do it for free
So righteous making fudge, your Auntie Grizelda
So proper judging others over her tea

You look just like her you do
I know by lookin' at you
That you've been listening to your Auntie Grizelda

Oh no, don't look at me like Auntie Grizelda
It takes much more to be someone of your own
You've got to make it free from Auntie Grizelda
Or just like her, you'll have to make it alone

I know she's having a fit
She doesn't like me a bit
No bird of grace ever lit on Auntie Grizelda
Auntie Grizelda, Auntie Grizelda
Auntie Grizelda, Auntie Grizelda
Grizzle da, grizzle da-da, da-da-da
Da-grizzle-da

One of The Monkees' most underrated songs. Nobody could sing it better. The three times I saw The Monkees perform, Peter sang this song. You could tell he loved performing this song live. He savored his only time as lead singer and he did an excellent job. RIP Peter and thank you for some great memories.

Someone needs to bust this song out on American Idol!

I saw him sing it live twice. He always introduced it by saying, "During the entire run of the show, I only sang lead on one song. And you're about to find out why." Joking aside, he had a great voice.

I think ringo could. His voice is very similar

I thought it was funny when, on a memorial for Davy and they were going to do "I'm a Believer," he stood up and said for the record that he sang it long before Shrek!

Their best, I think. That scat lead is amazing.

Rest In Peace, Peter Tork. Rock and Roll Heaven has gained another.

Best Monkees song that Peter ever put his vocals to. GREAT TUNE! Thanks for the memories Peter, and may you rest comfortably in peace.
