The sessions for The Monkees' second album actually coincided with the last session for their debut. As Boyce & Hart were holding sessions at RCA, Nesmith was holding a session nearby at Western. Micky sang "Mary, Mary" which was released on their second album. The mono and stereo mixes of the song differ slightly. Once again, arranger Don Peake played guitar along with James Burton, Al Casey, Michael Deasy, and for the lead, Glen Campbell. Michael Cohen played piano; Larry Knechtel and Bob West handled bass work; Hal Blaine and Jim Gordon played drums; and Gary Coleman was the percussionist.

Lyrics:

Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?
Mary, Mary, can I go too.
This one thing I will vow ya,
I'd rather die than to live without ya.
Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?

Mary, Mary, tell me truly
What did I do to make you leave me.
Whatever it was I didn't mean to,
You know I never would try and hurt ya.
Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?

What more, Mary, can I do
To prove my love is truly yours?
I've done more now than a clear-thinkin' man would do.

Mary, Mary, it's not over.
Where you go, I will follow.
'Til I win your love again
And walk beside you,
But until then.
Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?

Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?
Mary, where you goin' to?
Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, Mary, where you goin' to?
Oh, Mary, where you goin' to, Mary, Mary?
Mary, where you goin' to?
Wow! Ooh, where you goin' to?
Mary, where you goin' to?
Mary, Mary, Mary, ooh...
