Cue Sheet

FIGURE    C4, no progression

Heads (sides) lead right and circle four to a line
Go forward eight and back, curlique
Coordinate, and when you do
We'll all wheel & deal, curlique
Walk & dodge, a partner trade
Do the right & left thru now
Flutter wheel across that ring and roll it once around there
Star thru and then you'll do a dosado
You'll make an ocean wave, recycle and go
Allemande left, doci your own
Swing with that corner, promenade home
You're going downtown
Things will be great when you're there


FIGURE    Basic, no progression

Bow to your partner, your corner I sing
Circle left and go downtown
Allemande the corner and weave that old ring
And we will all go downtown
Doci round your partner, the men star left around there
Home you go a dosado once around your partner
Allemande left, come home box the gnat
Four ladies promenade once around the set
Come home and you swing, swing with this man
Allemande left, promenade home
You're going downtown
Things will be great when you're there

Downtown
 
 

When you're alone & life is making you lonely
You can always go
Downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise & the hurry
Seems to help, I know
Downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

CHORUS:
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown
No finer place, for sure
Downtown
Everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around & let your problems surround you
There are movie shows
Downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close
Downtown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
Happy again

(Chorus)
Downtown
Waiting for you tonight
Downtown
You're gonna be all right now

And you may find somebody kind to help & understand you
Someone who is just like you & needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown
Don't wait a minute for
Downtown
Everything's waiting for you

Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown...

Lyrics by Tony Hatch.
Recorded by Petula Clark.
