Super Monkees Lyrics Quiz

So, you think you know your Monkees music, huh? Huh? Well, do ya? Huh?

(Okay, enough of that!)

Anyway, my friend Andrea found an 80's music lyric quiz on the internet awhile back that we would try and do in our spare time and see if we can get all the songs. It was really difficult. So, I decided to try my hand at it.
Have fun!
