Downtown

from Good Thing He Can't Read My Mind

By Tony Hatch

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
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

Chorus: 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
Where they never close, Downtown
Listen to the rhythm of the gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with them to
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

Chorus

Oh you might 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

Chorus
