Petula Clark - Downtown
Tekst en muziek: Tony Hatch
(1964)






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
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 will be great when you’re
Downtown
No finer place, for sure
Downtown
Everything’s waiting for you



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 him 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 downtown
Where all the lights are bright
Downtown
Waiting for you tonight
Downtown
You’re gonna be all right now
Downtown
Downtown, downtown



Downtown
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 will be great when you’re
Downtown
Don’t wait a minute for
Downtown
Everything’s waiting for you
Downtown, downtown



Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
Downtown
