Downtown

Petula Clark




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

 

------ instrumental break ------

 

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 for

   Downtown - everything's waiting for you

 

Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown ...
