Alack, alas! Davy’s not as “chipper” as he should be! This is what causes him to droop and moan with gloom!
It’s hard to believe that anything could worry a guy like Davy Jones. But some things do—such as…
… “When I eat a lot, and don’t gain any weight. I really am far too skinny!”
… “When someone in my family gets sick. It especially bothers me ’cause they’re all so far away—in Manchester!”
… “When I make a really gourmet dish, and it doesn’t turn out right. I worry all night about what I did wrong. Cooking is one of my fav hobbies, you see!”
… “When someone doesn’t look me straight in the eyes when they’re talking to me. I think people who don’t are shifty! By the way, the first thing I notice about any girl is her eyes!”
… “When I go to the race track just to watch and end up betting! I lost most of the money I earned riding at Newmarket racetrack that way!”
… “When I have to go to the dentist. I’m a real coward when it comes to pain, and it hurts to have your teeth drilled!”
… “When someone says they’ll call me, and then they don’t. I always think that something awful happened, and, of course, nothing ever does! Peter always does that, but don’t tell him I told you!”
… “When I have to remember something that is very important. I’m always sure I’m going to forget!”
… “When I walk by a pet shop and see these cute little puppies and kittens in the window. They all look like they need so much love, and I worry that no one will buy them!”
… “When I misplace something I really love. It’s usually a cuff-link or a coin from my coin collection. I collect both of these things—and I’d really be very upset if I ever lost any of them!”
… “When I look at a girl on the street and she doesn’t look back at me! I really get scared that I might be losing my charms!”
… “When a girl talks too much. I really don’t like girls who are very talkative. I always worry that I won’t get the chance to say ‘Let’s go home’!”
… “When I don’t eat my oranges in the morning. I’m a real nut on physical fitness. I jump rope, lift weights and eat health foods. Oranges are very good for you. They have loads of vitamins, and I worry if I miss eating them!”
… “When I think of paying all my bills. I’m really very extravagant. For example, I bought myself an antique hearse. It’s got curtains and all kinds of groovy gadgets. But I have to remember that it cost a lot! And it’s only one of the unnecessary things that I’m always buying myself!”
… “When I think that there might be people somewhere who don’t like our show. I want everyone to be happy and like it—’cause we Monkees try very hard!”

I’m what you’d call a “wee one”—not too brawny, but nice!
I love my pageboy, don’t you? I haven’t got the hang of a flip yet!
I love to eat, but I never seem to put on any weight! Don’t you wish you had my problems?
I may have smallish feet, but I can pack a good kick!
I like dark-colored socks, by the way!
