"Lonely Town" as written by and Betty Comden Leonard Bernstein....
New York, New York, or a village in Iowa

The only difference is the name

If you're alone, whether on Main Street, or on Broadway

If you're alone, they are both the same, a town's a lonely town

When you pass through and there is no one waiting there for you

Then it's a lonely town, you wander up and down

The crowds rush by, a million faces pass before your eyes, still it's a lonely town

Unless there's love, a love that's shining

Like a harbor light, you're lost in the night

Unless there's love, the world's an empty place

And every town's a lonely town
