"Downtown" as written by and Chrissie Hynde....
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.
Down town.
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
Downtown.
No finer place for sure
Down town,
Ev'rything's waiting for you.
Downtown.

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 down town
Where all the lights are bright
Downtown
Waiting for you, tonight
Downtown,
You're gonna be all right 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,
Ev'rything's waiting for you.

Downtown, downtown,
Downtown, downtown.
