  • Song 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 will be great when you're downtown
    No finer place for sure downtown
    Everything's waiting for you.
    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 - downtown
    Where all the lights are bright downtown
    Waiting for you tonight downtown
    You're gonna be alright now
    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
