Do Not Ask for Love

(Murphy)

Lead Vocal: Micky Dolenz
Produced By: Mike Nesmith
Date: November 17, 1966

One of the few, yet excellent, Nesmith productions for the second album, this Micky-sung track was not released originally despite being performed during the group's first tour in Winter 1966/67. It was written by Michael Murphy, a friend of Nesmith, and released on Missing Links Volume 2. Peter would record this song for the 1968 TV special 33 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee.

Lyrics:

And is it so, once you thou art returning?
Hast thou lost thy way as once before?
I warned thee more than many times, thus would it be.
I shall not be thy refuge once more.

Thou makest me free then soon thou makest demands on me
And I am not thy love, thou workest in me slavery.
But I shan't hear thee as before.
I prithee, do not ask for love once more.

So go my way, and soon I shall go likewise.
And if thy path be high, then be mine low.
Behold my footsteps in the sand, but follow not.
For soon they shall be covered with snow.

Thou makest me free then soon thou makest demands on me
And I am not thy love, thou workest in me slavery.
But I shan't hear thee as before.
I prithee, do not ask for love once more.

I prithee, do not ask for love once more.
