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'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

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

Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown
