Goin' Down The Monkees Lyrics

Sock it to me...

Floatin down the river
With a saturated liver
And I wish I could forgive her
But I do believe she meant it
When she told me to forget it
And I bet she will regret it
When they find me in the morning wet and drowned
And the word gets round
Goin down
Goin down

Coming up for air
Its pretty stuffy under there
Id like to say I didnt care
But I forgot to leave a note
And its so hard to stay afloat
Im soakin wet without a boat
And I knew I should have taken off my shoes
Its front page news
Goin down
Goin down

I wish I had another drink
It wouldnt be so hard to sink
I should have taken time to think
Besides I got the picture straight
She must have had another date
I didnt need this extra weight
I wish that I could see the way to shore
Dont want no more
Goin down
Im goin down

And now I see the life I led
I slept it all away in bed
I should have learned to swim instead
And now its really got me stumped
I cant believe why I jumped
Id like to get my tummy pumped
I cant believe they drink this stuff in town
This dirty brown
Goin down
Goin down

I wish I looked before I leaped
I didnt know it was so deep
Been down so far I dont get wet
Havent touched the bottom yet
This river scene is gettin old
Im hungry, sleepy, wet and cold
She told me to forget it nice
I should have taken her advice
I only want to go on home
Id gladly leave that girl alone
What a way to spend the night
If I dont drown, Ill die of fright
My pappy taught me how to float
But I cant swim a single note
He threw me in to teach me how
I stayed there floatin like a mama cow
And now Ive floated way down stream
I know this has to be a dream
If I could find my way to shore
Id never, never do this anymore
Ill give you three, Ive been down nine
Im goin down just one more time.
Goin down.
Goin down.

Now the sky is gettin light
An everything will be alright
Think I finally got the knack
Just floatin here lazy on my back
I never really liked that town
I think Ill ride the river down
Just movin slow and floatin free
Theres a river swingin under me.
Waving back to the folks on shore
I should have thought of this before
Im floatin on down to new orleans
Goin to pick up on some swingin scenes
I know Ill know a better day
Ill go down groovin all the way
Goin down
Goin down
