Am = x02210   C  = x32010   A7 = x02020
F  = 133211   C7 = x32310   B  = x24442
D  = xx0232   G  = 320033   B7 = x21202
G7 = 320001   A  = x02220   E  = 022100

N.B.  The closing theme is the same as the opening one,
except for a very clumsily done edit where the 2nd line
of the verse is deleted to fit the timing of the credits.


         Am                       F
Here we come, walking down the street,
                      D                       G7
We get the funniest looks from ...everyone we meet!

[Chorus 1]
                      C     C7
Hey, Hey, we're The Monkees,
     F              G          C     C7
And people say we monkey a - round,
     F         G     C     C7     F         G     A
But we're too busy singing ...to put any - body down!

A7                             D
    We're just trying to be friendly,
 G                  A       D
Come and watch us sing and play,
 G          A            D
We're the young gene - ration,
     G      A            B
And we got something to say!

[Chorus 2]
B7                        E
    Hey, Hey, we're The Monkees,
      A          B              E
You never know where we'll be found,
 A        B          E        A            B         E    E
So, you better get ready, we may be coming to your town!
