The Monkees

Hi and welcome to Rock 'n Roll Fridays. We are like other memes in that we will ask you thirteen questions each and every Friday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick an singer, band, era or category and pick thirteen of their lyrics. Each of our questions will be based on the lyrics. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked The Monkees. The song titles are in caps. Both the titles and the lyrics are in bold. Here's Rock 'n Roll Fridays!
