Hey, hey, can you pick the missing lyrics from the Monkees theme song?

Here they come, BLANKING down the street…

If you're making a show about a rock 'n roll band, there had better be a rocking theme song. Good thing that The Monkees delivered one of the all-time greats!

Not only was "(Theme from) The Monkees" a catchy TV tune, it was a radio hit around the world. Micky Dolenz handled the lead vocals on both the full album track and the shortened television version. Because this is a challenge, we're going to pull lyrics from the whole shebang, as it opened the 1966 debut album The Monkees.

Good luck!

I've watched every episode of The Monkees and listened to every song so it's no wonder I got a perfect score.

I always thought it was found
15/15. I always heard it as "bound" also, so I went with the rhyme.

I thought it was found.
I realize that you responded to this 9 days ago, but I only now came across it: You and a few other fans were having a heated debate about whether the word is "found or bound." It's neither. All you have to do, {which is obviously what I did;} is look up the lyrics. Neither of those words are in the lyrics. What Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart wrote were: "Hey, hey we're the Monkees. and people say we Monkey around. But we're too busy singing, to put anybody down."

Thanks MeTV for bringing back The Monkees. My son is a big fan of the band ... when he was 8 he created a video using various toys to recreate the opening sequence, which both Micky and Peter enjoyed and even showed to the audience during their 2015 tour. Here's the link if you'd like to check it out: https://youtu.be/k9Blonstzvs

Fantastic! He did an excellent job with the Lego.
The link doesn't work, I suggest you go to You Tube and enter Lego Monkees!
Lego Monkees gets different videos, try Monkees My Toys! It's worth the effort!
Just viewed the Lego video. And like others have said, Dylan did a good job on it. Seeing as how it was downloaded 3 years ago, Dylan is probably 11 by now. Has anybody viewed the video that follows it? The video of Dylan opening up the package that he got for his birthday from Micky and Donna Dolenz? On of the items he got: a "dress" from Micky! In other words, he got a t shirt that came to his knees. {Which, if I understand correctly when the video was downloaded,} probably fits him better now!
