The Monkees

"Gonna Buy Me a Dog" is a song written by Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, which concluded the Monkees' first album, The Monkees. It is best known because of the constant ad-libbing done on the track by Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones. However, the song predates the Monkees, and a straight version had been performed by Jones as a guest on the television sitcom The Farmer's Daughter. Mono and stereo versions of the Monkees' version were released.
