Tambourine Hero

Davy throws off the shroud,
slaps at the dust, blinks,
tries his best to think,

and begins to run for his life
as a mob of teenage girls rounds the corner.
He runs all the way to Venice.

Swims up the Grand Canal,
bumps into a gondola,
sighs underneath the Bridge of Sighs

as he is pulled out of the water
by the other Monkees.
Peter plays a funny base note,

Mike strums a- ta-da-da-DA chord.
The pigeons shit all over Davy,
but won’t soil Lennon.
