Lyrics

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 so much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown
Things will be great when you're
Downtown
No finer place for sure
Downtown
Everything's waiting for you.
(Downtown)
Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows
Downtown.
Maybe you know some little places to go to
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 so much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go - downtown
Where all the lights are bright
Downtown
Waiting for you tonight
Downtown
You're gonna be alright now
Downtown
(Downtown)

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
So go downtown
Things will be great when you're
Downtown

Don't wait a minute more
Downtown
Everything is waiting for you

(Downtown)
