When you're alone
And life is making you lonely
You can always go downtown

You've got worries
And 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

Go downtown
Things'll 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 him 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

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

Go downtown
Things'll be great when you're
Downtown, don't wait a minute for
Downtown, everything's waiting for you

Downtown, downtown
Downtown, downtown...
