Headquarters


Pillow Time

(Janelle Scott/Matt Willis)

Lead Vocals: Micky Dolenz
Recorded At: RCA Victor Studio C, Hollywood
Date: March 14, 1967

"Pillow Time" was co-written by Micky's mother, and this is the first recorded version of the song. On this day in the studio, Micky was clowning around with reverb and tape effects when he began to sing this song. Chip liked it, and asked him to sing it again. However, the Monkees would not attempt to record this song for Headquarters. Micky would return to it in 1969 and a version from that time would make The Monkees Present

On CD:
Headquarters Sessions (2000), Rhino Handmade RHM2 7715


Lyrics:

There's a wonderland for Alice
There's a tall beanstalk for Jack
The sleepy train will take you there
So safely down the track
With the sandman at the throttle
You'll be off to dreams and back
It's pillow time again

You will meet all your storybook friends
As you go down Mother Goose Lane
Romp with Jack and Jill
Up and down the hill
And try to put Humpty together again

Close your sleepy eyes and listen
While we take a little hop
The candy whistle's blowin'
Don't you miss your station stop
So good night my wee way fairer
Pleasant dreams to you, oh tot
It's pillow time again

You will meet all your storybook friends
As you go down Mother Goose Lane
Romp with Jack and Jill, up and down the hill
And try to put Humpty together again

Close your sleepy eyes and listen
While we take a little hop
The candy whistle's blowin'
Don't you miss your station stop
So good night my wee way fairer
Pleasant dreams to you, oh tot
It's pillow time again

It's pillow time agian...
