"Down in the Bowery" as written by and Chuck Prophet Alejandro Escovedo....
Everybody's got to dance
With the blues sometimes
Everybody's got feel some things
They don't want to feel sometimes
I'd buy you a smile in a minute
But would you wear it?
If I had one moment in time
Would you com down and share it?

I want to see you out on the street
Makin' a scene for everybody
I want to hear your voice up above
The crowd and the noise
Down in the Bowery

I hope you live long enough to forget
Half the stuff they taught you
When it's all said and done I hope
You've got your own set of rules
To hang on to
I'd buy you a smile in a minute
But would you wear it?
If I had one moment of time
Would you come down and share it?

I want to see you out on the street
Makin' a scene for everybody
I want to hear your voice up above
The crowd and the noise
Down in the Bowery

I hope you live long enough to forget
Half the stuff they taught you
When it's all said and done I hope
You've got your own set of rules
To hang on to
I'd buy you a smile in a minute
But would you wear it?
If I had one moment of time
Would you come down and share it?

I want to see you out on the street
Makin' a scene for everybody
I want to hear your voice up above
The crowd and the noise
Down in the Bowery

    Song MeaningAlejandro Escovedo wrote this song for his son. After you know his writing perspective, the song pretty much interprets itself.
