Downtown

In the style of

Petula Clark

Lyrics

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 'em 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
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
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
downtown
