Lyrics:
John and Mitchy
Were getting kind of itchy
Just to leave the folk music behind
Zol and Denny
Working for a penny
Trying to get a fish on the line
In a coffee house Sebastian sat
And after every number they'd pass the hat
McGuinn and McGuire's just a-getting higher
In L.A., you know where that's at
And no one's getting fat except Mama Cass
Zolly said, Denny, you know there aren't many
Who can sing a song the way that you do
Let's go South
Denny said Zolly, golly, don't you think that I wish
I could play guitar like you
Zol, Denny and Sebastian sat
(At the Night Owl)
And after every number they'd pass the hat
McGuinn and McGuire's still a-gettin higher
In L.A., you know where that's at
And no one's getting fat except Mama Cass
When Cass was a sophomore
Planned to go to Swarthmore
But she changed her mind one day
Standing on the turnpike
Thumb out to hitch hike
Take her to New York right away
When Denny met Cass he gave her love bumps
Called John and Zol and that was the Mugwumps
McGuinn and McGuire couldn't get no higher
But that's what they were aiming at
And no one's getting fat except Mama Cass
Mugwumps, high jumps, low slumps, big bumps
Don't you work as hard as you play
Make up, break up, everything you shake up
Guess it had to be that way
Sebastian and Zol formed the Spoonful
Michelle, John, and Denny getting very tuneful
McGuinn and McGuire just a-catching fire
In L.A., you know where that's at
And everybody's getting fat except Mama Cass
Di-di-di-dit dit dit di-di-di-dit, who-o-oa
Broke, busted, disgusted
Agents can't be trusted
And Mitchy wants to go to the sea
Cass can't make it
She says we'll have to fake it
We knew she'd come eventually
Greasing on American Express cards
It's low rent, but keeping out the heat's hard
Duffy's good vibrations
And our imaginations can't go on indefinitely
And California dreamin is becoming a reality
