DOWN TOWN

When you're alone and life is making you lonely

you can always go down town.

When you got worries, all the noise and the hurry

seems to help, I know - down town.

 

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 down town.

Things'll be great when you're down town.

No fin~er place for sure down town.

Everything's waiting for you down town.

 

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

there are movie shows down town.

Maybe you know some little places to go

where they never close down town.

 

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 down town.

Waiting for you tonight down town.

You're gonna be alright now down town.

 

When you're alone and life is making you lonely

you can always go down town.

When you got worries, all the noise and the hurry

seems to help, I know - 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.

 

So 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 down town.

 

Down town, down town,

down town, down town...(repeat & fade)

 

Back when life was kinder and gentler?
