Everybody's got to dance with the blues some times
Everybody's got to feel feel something they don't want to feel sometimes
I'd buy you a smile in a minute but would you wear it?
If you had one moment to spare would you come down and share it?

I want you out on the streets making a noise for everybody
I want to hear your voice up above the crowd and the noise
Down in the Bowery
Down in the Bowery

I hope you live long enough to forget half the stuff that they taught you
And when it's all said and done I hope you got your own set of rules to hang on to
I'd buy you a smile in a minute but would you wear it?
If you had one moment to spare would you come down and share it?

I want you out on the streets making a noise for everybody
I want to hear your voice up above the crowd and the noise
Down in the Bowery
Down in the Bowery

I hope you live long enough to forget half the stuff that they taught you
And when it's all said and done I hope you got your own set of rules to hang on to
I'd buy you a smile in a minute but would you wear it?
If you had one moment to spare would you come down and share it?

I want you out on the streets making a noise for everybody
I want to hear your voice up above the crowd and the noise
Down in the Bowery
Down in the Bowery
Down in the Bowery
