What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round

What Am I Doing Hangin' 'Round

The Monkees

Just a loudmouth yankee, I went down to Mexico
I didn't have much time to spend, about a week or so
There, I lightly took advantage of a girl who loved me so
But I found myself thinking, when the time had come to go

What am I doing hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be riding on that train to San Antone
What am I doing hangin' 'round?

She took me to the garden just for a little walk
I didn't know much Spanish, and there was no time for talk
Then she told me that she loved me
Not with words, but with a kiss
And like a fool, I kept on thinking of a train I could not miss

What am I doing hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be riding on that train to San Antone
What am I doing hangin' 'round?

Well, it's been a year or so
And I want to go back again
And if I get the money, well I'll ride the same ol' train
But I guess your chances come but once
And boy, I sure missed mine
And still, I can't stop thinking when I hear some whistle cryin'

What am I doing hangin' 'round?
I should be on that train and gone
I should be riding on that train to San Antone
What am I doing hangin' 'round?

What am I doing hangin' 'round...
