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 are much brighter there
you can forget all your troubles
Forget all your cares so go
Downtown

Things 'll 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 movies 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
So go, Downtown

Where all the lights are bright
Downtown
Waiting for you tonight
Downtown
You're gonna be all right now

Downtown...
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 'll be great when you're
Downtown
Don't wait a minute more
Downtown
Everything is waiting for you
Downtown

Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
