Dont Bring Me Down - Lyrics by Monkees


It used to be such a good thing
Such an easy feeling
I didn't know you were looking
Didn't know you were stealing

I was loving you when we were alone
But you had other ideas of your own
Word gets around
Don't bring me down

We used to have us some good times
Used to laugh together
It took awhile to realize
You were wantin' something better

When we were kissin' i closed my eyes
But you were lookin' at the other guys
I played the clown
Don't bring me down

It used to be such a good thing
Such an easy feelin'
I didn't know you were lookin'
I didn't know you were stealing

I went and messed it up and fell in love
But you sure know how to make it rough
You're still around
Don't bring me down
