Tapioca Tundra Lyrics

Artist: Monkees
Album: The Birds, the Bees & the Monkees

by Michael Nesmith


Reasoned verse, some prose or rhyme
Lose themselves in other times
And waiting hopes cast cast silent spells
That speak in clouded clues.
It cannot be a part of me,
For now it's part of you.

Careful plays on fields
That seems to vanish when they're in between
And softly as I walk away
In freshly tattered shoe.
It cannot be a part of me
For now it's part of you.

Sunshine, ragtime
Blowing in the breeze.
Midnight, looks right
Standing more at ease.

Silhouettes and figures stay
Close to what he had to say
And one more time the faded dream
Is saddened by the news.
It cannot be a part of me
For now it's part of you.

Well, Sunshine, ragtime
Blowing in the breeze.
Midnight, looks right
Standing more at ease.

[Instrumental]

Sunshine, ragtime
Blowing in the breeze.
Midnight, looks right
Standing more at ease.

Silhouettes and figures stay
Close to what he had to say
And one more time the faded dream
Is saddened by the news.
It cannot be a part of me
For now it's part of you.

Papa Nez is an under-rated songwriter in my opinion. His music from 40+ years ago holds up well.

This song represents Mikes greatness as a writer and composer. Nothing fancy - just a delightful listen.

This is a great one. Awesome chord progression coupled with very cool melody line. Love the production. Nez is the real deal.
