Downtown
Words & Music by Tony Hatch


When you're alone and life is making you lonely,
you can always go downtown.
When you 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 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,

And go downtown.
Things'll be great when you're downtown.
No finer place for sure, downtown
everything's waiting for you.

Downtown

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 the gentle bossa nova,
You'll be dancing with them, too, 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 downtown,
Where all the lights are bright, downtown,
waiting for you tonight, downtown.
You're gonna be alright now.

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

And go downtown.
Things'll be great when you're downtown.
Don't wait a minute more, downtown.
Everything's waiting for you.

Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
