The Monkees - Goin' Down

One day I will be able to sing this song. The problem isn't working out what the lyrics are, they're quite clear. No, the problem is the speed with which they're delivered, even Mickey Dolenz was taken aback when he first discovered just how high the tempo is for this Monkees ditty.

I haven't made any concerted effort to learn it, mind, but then I don't usually have to. Repeated listening generally lodges enough information in my head that I can pull the lyrics out on the fly during the song, but I think the breakneck pace of Goin' Down means I'll need more instant recall to get it all out in time. But I'm getting there... bit by bit.
