The Girl I Knew Somewhere

(Michael Nesmith)

Lead Vocals: Micky Dolenz
Bass: John London
Recorded At: RCA Victor Studios, Hollywood
Date: January 19 & February 23, 1967

A new version of "The Girl I Knew Somewhere" was recorded with Micky singing lead because the group knew a Mike vocal would not be considered for release on a single. This song would be released as the B-side of the group's third single. When the song was released in stereo, some additional backing vocals were included during the bridge.

Lyrics:

You tell me that you've never been this way before
You tell me things I knew that I've heard somewhere
You're standing in the places
And you're staring down through faces
That bring to my traces of a girl
A girl that I knew somewhere

I just can't put my finger on what it is
That says to me, "Watch out! Don't believe her."
I can't give any reasons girl
My thoughts are bound down in a whirl
I just can't think who in the world was that girl
I know I met her somewhere

Someway, somehow the same thing was done
Someone, somewhere did me the same wrong

[instrumental]
Ahh....

Well goodbye dear I just can't take this chance again
My fingers are still burning from the last time
And if your love was not a game
I only have myself to blame
But that's as may be I can't explain, just ask
The girl that I knew somewhere

And if your love was not a game
I only have myself to blame
But that's as may be I can't explain, just ask
The girl that I knew somewhere
