John and Mitchy were gettin` kind of itchy
Just to leave the folk music behind;
Zal and Denny workin` for a penny
Tryin` 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 just a-gettin` higher in L.A.,
You know where that`s at.
And no one`s gettin` fat except Mama Cass.

Zally said, "Denny, you know there aren`t many
Who can sing a song the way that you do; let`s go south."
Denny said, "Zally, golly, don`t you think that I wish
I could play guitar like you."
Zal, Denny, and Sebastian sat (at the Night Owl)
And after every number they`d pass the hat.
McGuinn and McGuire still a-gettin higher in L.A.,
You know where that`s at.
And no one`s gettin` fat except Mama Cass.

When Cass was a sophomore, planned to go to Swathmore
But she changed her mind one day.
Standin` on the turnpike, thumb out to hitchhike,
"Take me to New York right away."
When Denny met Cass he gave her love bumps;
Called John and Zal and that was the Mugwumps.
McGuinn and McGuire couldn`t get no higher
But that`s what they were aimin` at.
And no one`s gettin` 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 is shake up;
Guess it had to be that way.
Sebastian and Zal formed the ??¡poonful;
Michelle, John, and Denny gettin` very tuneful.
McGuinn and McGuire just a-catchin` fire in L.A.,
You know where that`s at.
And everybody`s gettin` fat except Mama Cass.

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.
Greasin` on American Express cards;
Tents 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 becomin` a reality...
