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 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
Downtown, things will be great when you're
Downtown, you'll find a place for sure
Downtown, everything's waiting for you

Downtown, 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
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 all right now

Downtown, downtown, 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, and go
Downtown, things will be great when you're
Downtown, don't wait a minute more
Downtown, everything's waiting for you

Downtown, downtown
Downtown, downtown
Downtown, downtown
Downtown, downtown
Downtown, downtown
