When you'e 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

Longer 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 'll be great when you're - downtown

No finer place for sure - downtown

Everything's waiting for you - downtown.

Don't hung around and let your problems surround you

There are movies 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
...

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 your troubles

Forget all your cares
So go - downtown

Don't wait a minute more - downtown

Don't wait a minute more - downtown
Everything is waiting for you -
Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
Downtown.
