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 HURRIES
SEEMS TO HELP, I KNOW
DOWNTOWN

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
DOWNTOWN
THINGS’LL BE GREAT WHEN YOU’RE
DOWNTOWN
NO FINER PLACE FOR SURE
DOWNTOWN
EVERYTHING’S WAITING FOR YOU

OR YOU CAN GO
UPTOTWN EACH EVERNING
TO MY TENEMENT
UPTOWN WHERE FOLKS
DON’T HAVE TO PAY MUCH RENT
AND WHEN YOU’RE THERE WITH ME

YOU CAN SEE
THAT YOU’RE EVERYTHING
THE WORLD IS SWEET
IT’S AT YOUR FEET
IF YOU'RE UPTOWN

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
AND YOU WILL FIND SOMEBODY
WHO WILL HELP AND UNDERSTAND YOU
SOMEONE WHO IS JUST LIKE YOU
AND NEEDS A HELPING HAND TO
GUIDE THEM ALONG

SO MAYBE I’LL SEE YOU THERE
WE CAN FORGET ALL OUR TROUBLES
FORGET ALL OUR CARES AND GO
