Peter made his vocal debut on this third version of "I Don't Think You Know Me" with the other three Monkees providing the backing vocals, making this the first song recorded with all four Monkees singing. The song was not included on the album however, nor did it make an appearance on the TV show as originally planned. It was first released, in stereo, on Rhino's 1991 Listen To The Band box set, then in a more polished mono mix as a bonus track on the second album CD reissue.

On CD:

Listen To The Band (1991), Rhino Records R2 70566 (stereo mix)


If you think I want the life you choose to live
I don't think I want the love you've got to give
If you think my goals could be so trivial and small
Then, I don't think you know me at all

Born between the covers of your fashion books
You think you can make it, girl, on just your looks
But you could never bring me up
Between us stands a wall
No, I don't think you know me at all

Believing in the promise painted in your smile
I've chased what I was running from, girl, all my life
I've known you a hundred times in memories I recall, but
I don't think you know me at all
I don't think you know me at all.
