Goin' Downtown Lyrics

by Joe Jackson

I could cool out, I could hang loose
I could lay my head back in this comfortable noose
I could watch the paint dry on these rented walls
Or I could run wild with the first wild thing who calls

Goin' downtown, goin' downtown
Goin' downtown to stand 'round and stare
And put people down for not bein' there
Goin' downtown and I'll see you there

But I saw you laugh at that girl havin' fun
To show some emotion, just isn't done
You can look but don't touch, that's as far as it goes
You're only as good as the cut of your clothes

Goin' downtown, goin' downtown
Goin' downtown to stand 'round and stare
And put people down for not bein' there
Goin' downtown and I'll see you there

Goin' downtown to stand 'round and stare
And put people down for not bein' there
Goin' downtown and I'll see you there

Goin' downtown, goin' downtown
Goin' downtown, goin' downtown
Downtown, goin' downtown
