Songtekst

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go downtown
When you 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 sidewalks 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 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 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 down town
Where all the lights are bright downtown
Waiting for you tonight downtown
You're gonna be alright now downtown downtown

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's waiting for you downtown

Downtown downtown
Downtown downtown
