John and Mitchy were gettin' kind of itchy
Zal and Denny workin' for a penny
In a coffee house Sebastian sat
McGuinn and McGuire just a-gettin' higher
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass
Zally said "Denny, you know there aren't many
Denny said "Zally, golly, don't you think that I wish
Zal, Denny and Sebastian sat (At the Night Owl)
McGuinn and McGuire still a-gettin higher
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass
When Cass was a sophomore, planned to go to Swarthmore
Standin' on the turnpike, thumb out to hitchhike
When Denny met Cass he gave her love bumps
McGuinn and McGuire couldn't get no higher
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass
Mugwumps, high jumps, low slumps, big bumps
Make up, break up, everything is shake up
Sebastian and Zal formed the Spoonful
McGuinn and McGuire just a-catchin' fire
And everybody's gettin' fat except Mama Cass

And Mitchy wants to go to the sea
We knew she'd come eventually
It's low rent, but keeping out the heat's hard
Can't go on indefinitely
