“Since I Fell for You” Lyrics

Micky: Before the Monkees, I actually did have a life, I had another rock and roll band, one called Micky and the One Nighters, ’cause that was it, one night, but what a night it was. Sang a lot of rock and roll tunes, sang a lot of blues tunes. My father had been a singer. He was an operatic singer. He would sing things like:

Some enchanted evening
You may see a stranger

Micky: Ooh. I’m not gonna do that. And my mom had been a singer. She was a singer in uh, the big band era, and also sang a lot of blues tunes. I’m gonna do an old blues tune for you now um, that I remember my mother singing to me when I was in the womb. ’Course it sounded different, it sounded like [muffled singing], but I remember this tune. And to do it for you now, I call it some of my pre-Monkees singing… my P.M.S.

When you just give love and never get love
You’d better let love depart
I know it’s so, and yet, I know
I can’t get you out of my heart (Tss! Ee!)

You made me leave my happy home
You took my love and now you’re gone
Since I fell for you

Love brings such misery and pain
I guess I’ll never feel the same
Since I fell for you

Well, it’s too bad, and it’s so sad
That I’m in love with you
First you love me, then you snub me
What can I do?
I’m still in love with you

I guess I’ll never see the light
I get the blues most every night
Since I fell for you

[break]

Well, it’s too bad, and it’s so sad
That I’m in love with you
First you love me, then you snub me
What can I do?
I’m still in love with you, ohh

Guess I’ll never see the light
I get the blues, oh, most every night
Since I fell, I fell for you, I fell for you, I fell for you
Since I, since, since, since
Now since I fell for you, ow!
