The Monkees – Shorty Blackwell lyrics

Written by Micky Dolenz

Shorty Blackwell, Shorty Blackwell
Be friends with me, be friends with me
Shorty Blackwell, Shorty Blackwell
Be friends with me, be friends with me

I'm feeling very bad today
Another cat came into stay
He's eating all my food
He's speaking very rude
He's gonna change the mood

I'm feeling very bad today
A red balloon got in my way
It followed me around
But never touched the ground
What can I say?

He built a house upon a hill
Ask him if he's happy and then give him a pill
He's going mad
He bought another car today
Ask him if he's happy, then turn the other way
He's going mad (repeat over and over)

I'm feeling very bad today
Another cat came into stay
He's eating all my food
He's speaking very rude
He's gonna change the mood

Black and shiny now you've finally
Gotten everything you've wanted
And you're taunted by the power
That you really don't want anymore

Everybody's talking faster
Hurry up get me a master
I don't have much time to lose
And besides I'm polishing my shoes

Crossing the street
Watching your feet
Or you'll die in a thunderbird light
Wishing with all of your might
That you read the newspaper that
You forgot to buy today
How will you know what they do when they say
Say(repeat over and over)

I'm feeling very bad today
Another girl came by to stay
I can't think of a word
To tell you what I've heard
I've been away (10 times)

I am my? (repeat continually as it fades)
