Downtown  

 

When you're alone, and life is making you lonely,

You can always go… downtown

When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry

Seems to help, I know… downtown.

 

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city

Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty

How can you lose? The lights are much brighter there

You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go

 

Down-town,    things'll be great when you're

Down-town,     no finer place for sure,

Down-town,     everything's waiting for you

 (Down-town,    down-town)

 

Don't hang around, and let your problems surround you

There are movie shows downtown

Maybe you know some little places to go to

Where they never close downtown

 

Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova

You'll be dancing with 'em, too, before the night is over

Happy again. The lights are much brighter there

You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go

 

Downtown where all the lights are bright,

Downtown, waiting for you tonight,

Downtown, you're gonna be alright now

(Downtown downtown)

 (Down-town,      down-town)

 

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you

Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to

Guide them along. So, maybe I'll see you there

We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares and go

 

Down-town,     things'll be great when you're

Down-town,    don't wait a minute more,

Down-town,     everything's waiting for you

Downtown        (downtown)

Downtown        (downtown)

Downtown        (downtown)

Downtown        (downtown)
