About I'll Be Back Up on My Feet

"I'll Be Back Up on My Feet" is a song by Sandy Linzer and Denny Randell, which was recorded by The Monkees during the 1960s. The first Monkees version of the song was recorded on October 26, 1966, during the period when the band did not perform their own instruments as much on their recordings. This version was produced by Jeff Barry, and was used in two first-season episodes of their series, "Dance, Monkees, Dance", episode 14 and "Monkees In the Ring", episode 20. (In the former, the show's credits mistakenly listed the title as "I'll Be Back On My Feet Again"). The record was slated to be included on More of the Monkees, but was pulled from the album's lineup, and never originally released. During 1967 and 1968, the Monkees remade several of their earlier songs, including "Valleri" and selections that appeared on their Headquarters album, after the band had graduated to playing more of their own instruments on record. During sessions for their Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. album, the Monkees tried a remake of "I'll Be Back Up on My Feet", but did not complete it.

Girl, I know the grass is greener just around the bend,
Gotta say goodbye, but don't you fear,
Though the road is broken, I might fail to find the end,
I won't disappear.
I'll be back up on my feet,
I'll be back up on my feet,
Chase the moon and sun to find my one and only you.
I'll be back up on my feet,
I'll be back up on my feet,
Looking high, I'm looking low,
When I find my boots I know I got to go.
Back up on my feet...ah, ah.
Maybe I will be a star, or maybe just a clown,
Girl, I'll never know until I try,
Maybe I will meet a girl who'll try to keep me down,
But you won't have to cry.
I'll be back up on my feet,
I'll be back up on my feet,
Chase the moon and sun to find my one and only you.
I'll be back up on my feet,
I'll be back up on my feet,
Looking high, I'm looking low,
When I find my boots I know I got to go.
Back up on my feet ah, ah.

Maybe I will meet a girl who'll try to keep me down,
But you won't have to cry.
I'll be back up on my feet,
I'll be back up on my feet,
Chase the moon and sun to find my one and only you.
I'll be back up on my feet,
I'll be back up on my feet,
Looking high, I'm looking low,
When I find my boots I know I got to go,
When I find my boots I know I got to go,
When I find my boots I know I got to go.
