It's..... The happiest blog on earth






My girlfriend likes The Monkees. So for her birthday, I'd made her a "mix tape" of 26 of their best love songs. And "As We Go Along" was my favorite. (It was co-written by Carol King!)

You can listen to the song below while watching a pretty video showing a field of flowers.



 
Here's the lyrics to "As We Go Along."

I can tell by your face
That you're looking to find a place
to settle your mind
and reveal who you are.

And you shouldn't be shy,
For I'm not going to try
to hurt you, or heal you, 
or steal your star.

Open your eyes,
Get up off your chair.
There's so much to do in the sunlight.
Give up your secrets
and let down your hair,
And sit with me here by the firelight.

Why think about
who's going to win out?
We'll make up our story
as we go along.

There's so little time
for us to try to rhyme
and so many highways 
to travel upon.

Open your eyes,
Get up off your chair.
There's so much to do in the sunlight.
Give up your secrets
and let down your hair,
And sit with me here by the firelight.

And if you're a hard-core Monkee fan, here's the 26 love songs I picked!
