Petula Clark's, "Downtown"
Better Lyrics:
Well baby you are a mess,
So now I gotta get up & I gotta get dressed and go
Downtown, Borrow a car & go
Downtown, get to the bar & go
Dowtown, there's gonna be a fight now.....
Original Lyrics:
Well maybe I'll see you there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go
Downtown, things will be great when you're ,
Downtown, Don't wait a minute more
Downtown, you're gonna be alright now......
