Calico Girlfriend Samba

(Michael Nesmith)

Vocals: Michael Nesmith
Recorded at: RCA Victor Studios, Hollywood
Date: May 29, 1969
Me and my calico girlfriend
Starting a set of new rules,
Watching the stars as they drop in,
Making the night-time a fool.

Wandering over a roadway
Changing the signs of the times
Looking for love and a new day
Seeing with more than our eyes.

Keeper of men and a shadow
Follow us up to the top.
Taking the latch off the window,
Giving us more than we've got.

Me and my calico girlfriend
Suddenly stare at the face
Of time and it's hope that we'll win.
Then softly drop out of the race.

Keeper of men and a shadow
Follow us up to the top.
Taking the latch off the window,
Giving us more than we've got.

Me and my calico girlfriend
Suddenly stare at the face
Of time and it's hope that we'll win.
Then softly drop out of the race.
