Facts:
  • "Zilch" can be found on the 1967 album HEADQUARTERS (the first album on which The Monkees were allowed to play their own instruments and have general control over what they sang and recorded). (sav-man)
  • The "Mister Dobalina/Mister Bob Dobalina" phrase was sampled and adapted into a rap song, "Mistadobalina" by Del Tha Funkee Homosapien (Ice Cube's cousin). Del's song can be heard on his classic 1991 album I WISH MY BROTHER GEORGE WAS HERE. (sav-man)
  • The phrases chanted by the four Monkees were allegedly sayings that they had encountered while traveling on tour. (sav-man)
  • Fun bit of wordplay (done in an almost-rap style) from The Monkees! (sav-man)

    Never mind the furthermore, the plea is self defense.
    Never mind the furthermore, the plea is self defense.
    Never mind the furthermore, the plea is self defense.
    Never mind the furthermore, the plea is self defense.

    Mike:
    Zilch!

    It is of my opinion that the people are intending

    On the lyrics, please note which Monkee does which part.

    I think it's Peter, Davey, Mickey & Mike.
