The Lyrics

One of my corona virus songs.
DOWNTOWN

Though you're alone and feeling sorry at home
You're being told don't go downtown.
You could go out and meet some people about
But there are tales of woe, downtown.
Now you would want to shop in all the stores you used to go to
But you would find the doors are shut and notices say no to
Going inside.
There's nothing for you to buy
So you can save all your money and don't even try
To go downtown
Where all the shops are shut
Downtown
No need to bust a gut
Downtown
Nothing is open for you.

Downtown (downtown) downtown (downtown)

Down by the green there is a place to be seen
And keep from going to downtown.
Maybe you know there are some people who go there
But it's not for you, downtown.
As long as you can buy your food at somewhere that is near you,
And talk to friends and neighbours who are close enough to hear you,
You'll be OK.
Don't listen to those who say
That there is nothing to fear and everything is OK
To go downtown
Don't even think of it
Downtown
It's just a load of sh...
Downtown
Nothing is open for you.

Downtown (downtown) downtown (downtown)

(Instrumental break)

As long as you can buy your food at somewhere that is near you
And talk to friends and neighbours who are close enough to hear you
You'll be OK.
Don't listen to those who say
That there is nothing to fear and everything is OK
To go downtown
Don't even think of it,
Downtown
It's just a load of sh...
Downtown
Nothing is open for you.

Downtown (downtown) downtown (downtown)....
