about

This song is a true story!

In 1965 advertisements ran in 'Variety' and 'Hollywood Reporter':

The two ads were identical and read as follows:

“MADNESS!! AUDITIONS. Folk & Roll Musicians, Singers for acting roles in new TV series. Running parts for 4 insane boys, age 17–21.”

It's how we got The Monkees!

lyrics

Ah-Oo .. Oo-Oo-Ooo ..

(Chorus):
Hollywood 6-5188 (Hollywood)
No time to turn away (turn away)
Madness is on display (on display)
Insane boys call today

Hollywood 6-5188 (Hollywood)
Just call we'll put you through (put you through)
Show us what you can do (you can do)
We'll make your dreams come true
Ah-Oo .. Oo-Oo-Ooo ..

(i):
(Bah-Bah-Bah)
Here we come
(Bah-Bah-Bah)
We gotta something to say
(Bah-Bah-Bah)
Everything
(Ah-aah)
Is going our way

(Chorus):

(II):
(Bah-Bah-Bah)
Here we come
(Bah-Bah-Bah)
We're gonna get our big break
(Bah-Bah-Bah)
Everything
(Ah-aah)
Everything's at stake

(Repeat first line of Chorus):
