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, carhorns, 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
