I'm going down town tonight, I'm gonna find myself a dream
I'm gonna dress up right, and be the best they've ever seen
You can tell from their eyes, you can tell from their eyes
That they're never impressed, that they're never impressed
From the way they walk round, from the way they walk round
They are used to the best, they are used to the best

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight

Why let them break you in with self-sophisticated praise
'cos when the cards are low you see the smile come on their face
If you speak the right words, if you speak the right words
They will hear what you say, they will hear what you say
They will take your attention, just take your attention
And then turn away, and then turn away

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight

Just one thing before you go my ladies of the night
Just one thing I have to say I've got you, and you're
Confident and debonair you move between the stars
Hungry for those staring eyes that fill your waking hours

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight

Your face is all run dry with all the echoes of the night
And so I'm home alone, I wash my head and hold on tight
If you speak the right words, if you speak the right words
They will hear what you say, they will hear what you say
They will take your attention, just take your attention
And then turn away, and then turn away

Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
Going down town tonight, going down town tonight
