An earlier recording of this song, with a slightly different arrangement,
was released on "Monkees Missing Links (Volume 1)". Another version appeared on Rhino's reissue of "Headquarters".

The Newer Stuff
The Older Stuff
Nine Times Blue
written by Michael Nesmith
There's a certain something in the way
You looked at me and said you'd stay
That let me know that I was out of line
But I didn't know what else to do
And like a fool I tested you
By demanding things of you which weren't mine
And now I feel like such a fool
For making you crawl back to me
But you did it with such love
That you're standing far above
Me and all I did to you
I'm sorry now, what can I do?
I know that never in the world
Could I have found me such a girl
Who's there to pick me up before I fall
So if in the end we should go
Both our separate ways
I know the lesson I've learned here is worth it all
