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 - down town Things'll be great when you're - down town. No finer place for sure - down town, Ev'rything's waiting for you. - Down town. Don't hang around and let your problems surround you, There are movie shows - down town, Maybe you know some little places to go to Where they never close. - down town. Just listen to the rythm 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 - down town where all the lights are bright - Down town, waiting for you, tonight - Down town, you're gonna be all right now. - Down town. 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 - down town things'll be great when you're - down town, Don't wait a minute more - down town, Ev'rything's waiting for you.
