When you're alone and life is making you lonely /
You can always go / down town /
When you've got worries all the noise and the hurries /
Seems the help I know / down town /

Just listen to the music after traffic in the city /
Linger round the sidewalk were the neonsigns are pretty /
How can you lose /

The lights are much brighter there /
You can forget all your troubles / forget all your cares /
And go / down town /
Things will be great when you're / down town /
No final place for sure / down town /
Everything's waiting for you / down town /

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you /
There are movieshows / down town /
Maybe you know some little places to go to where they never close /
Down town /

Just listen to the rythm of the gentle bossanova /
You'll be dancing with him soon /
Before the night is over / happy again /

The lights are much brighter there /
You can forget all your troubles / forget all your cares /
And 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 /

Down town /

And you may find somebody kind to help you (? ) understanding /
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 /
And go / down town /
Things will be great when you're / down town /
Don't wait a minute for / down town /
Everything's waiting for you / down town /

Down town / down town /
Down town / down town /
