That Was Then This Is Now
The Monkees Lyrics


You always say you like my style.
You say I'm tough and kind of wild.
Am I too much for you to tame?
I swear this time it's not a game.

I've known a lot of girls.
No, this I won't deny.
I'll give our love,
I'll give it more than a try.
That was then, (that was then) this is now.
Let me prove my love girl, I'll make you proud.
I never made (never made) this kind of vow.
That was then, this is now

I've led a thousand lives it seems.
And there's been a lot of broken dreams.
My mind's just swept love aside.
But you broke me down and put me wise.

I've doubted all compassion,
But you showed me the door.
I can't doubt it,
I don't doubt it no more.

That was then, (that was then) this is now.
Let me prove my love girl, I'll make you proud.
I never made (never made) this kind of vow.
That was then, this is now.

I've known a lot of girls.
No, this I won't deny.
I'll give our love,
I'll give it more than a try.

That was then, (that was then) this is now.
Let me prove my love girl, I'll make you proud.
I never made (never made) this kind of vow.
That was then, this is now.

That was then, this is now.
That was then, this is now.

Damn, I've been looking for this video for a long time. It was on an old VHS tape I had when I was a kid, along with the Talking Head's "Wild Wild Life" randomly. Thanks for the upload!!.

random combinations of songs on tape date us to the awesome era

Funny thing for me is I never saw any of these videos until they were 30 years old when started showing up on youtube. My city never got cable until the early 90s. They never played the old videos except really common ones like Aha Take on Me.

That was an amazing comeback song for these boys 35 years ago. We miss you already Davy, Peter, and Nez! My thoughts are with Micky. We’ll see you boys in a better place. Rock and Roll ✌️🀘🎸 🎡 🎢

This video was filmed at Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey. I saw The Monkees perform there June 6, 1986. It was my very first concert. I enjoyed every second of it. It is great seeing this video again. It certainly brings back some fond memories. Thank you for posting. RIP Peter and Davy.

The Monkees were my first concert at Jones Beach, NY and just now I think I may have been at this one at Great Adventure when I was 8 years old!! I am a big Monkees fan ever since I was little. Thanks for posting this, I’m going to have to look for old photos on film now!

I was there. Wow great memory.

ih8kit - I took my future (and current) wife to the same tour when it passed through Phoenix that year. Needed earplugs. The 15-year-old girls NEVER stopped screaming. I've been a pilot for many years, and it was like standing next to a jet engine during runup.

That concert was one of our best memories.
