Downtown people gotta work a little harder
Working downtown
Downtown, they got to think a little quicker
'Cause they're downtown

Downtown, the breaks are harder
Downtown, the thieves are smarter

I've got this place I'm renting
It cost me next to nothing, downtown
Nobody comes around telling me
I gotta turn the sound down

Broadway, down on the corner
The Bible screamer, the plasma donor
Buses, car horns, ghetto blasters
The shouts and cries of the human disasters

It's all music
It's all music

It's all music
It's all music

I feel alright when I'm downtown
My feet are light when I'm downtown
I cast my hopes on the human tide
I place my bet and let it ride
I'm open wide when I'm downtown

Downtown, there's every kind of people
Walkin' 'round downtown
Downtown, there's every language
Every human sound, downtown

Downtown, the nights are longer
Downtown, the sights are stronger
Downtown, wandering all around, downtown

It's all music

Eight blocks south of city hall
The rats run free and the winos crawl
Darkness falls on the vast machine
Where the future stalks the American dream

I feel alright when I'm downtown
My head feels light when I'm downtown
It's all in sight when I'm downtown
I feel alright when I'm downtown
