Overview

"She Makes Me Laugh" was the first single off Good Times!, a 2016 Monkees album released to commemorate the band's 50th anniversary. Some of the lyrics and melody can originally be found in Cuomo's May 1998 sketches for "I'm So Glad I Got a Girl to Think Of." Some of the verse was taken from the chorus of the Maladroit era demo “Stupid Feelings.” In November of 2020 Cuomo's demos were released as part of the demo compilations Alone VI: The Black Room and Alone XII: The White Year.

Lyrics

I'm so glad that I got her
To think of
She's fine as any valentine
I think about her all the time
Cross my heart and hope to die

She sends me silly messages
And pictures
Directing traffic in the mall
Or posing with some brand new shoes
She never fails to surprise

She makes me laugh
She makes me smile
And I could hang out
With her all day and night
She makes me laugh
She makes me cry
And I would like to be with her for a while

I'm so glad that I got her
To think of
We'll have a dinner date tonight
And play some scrabble with the guys
And wear our pink party hats
Maybe I should take her on Safari
You'll see us wave from our canoe
If that's what she wants to do
Tell me what's wrong with that

No matter whatever else I do
She's still the girl I should hold on to
No matter whatever else I do
She's still the girl I should hold on to
No matter whatever else I do
She's still the girl
Still the girl

She Makes Me Laugh (ver. 4)

I'm so glad I've got a girl to think of
Even though she isn't mine
I think about her all the time
It's enough to know she's alive
I wish that I could get to know her better
She's always got her dander up
Until she gives a hug goodbye
And then I know she's alive

She makes me laugh
She makes me smile
And I could hang out
With her all day and night
She makes me laugh
She makes me cry
And I would like to be with her for a while

No matter whatever else I do
She's still the girl I should hold on to
No matter whatever else I do
She's still the girl I should hold on to
No matter whatever else I do
She's still the girl
Still the girl
