Ah yeah,
Oh, oh, yeah
No doubt
Do it downtown in from the outside
Yeah, find the scene & work it brother
Moving thru sound
City's like wild life
All overgrown & living undercover
And wound up so tight

(We love the Downtown Life)
Downtime life baby
(Driftin' thru the day waiting for the nite, oh oh)
Oh
(Downtown Life)
(it feels so right)
Feels so right
(It keeps me hangin' on, hangin' on)

So listen now
Velvet Lou was a neighbor of mine
Now he walks the dog in Jersey, Brother
Yuppies in black with the white collar crime
They scared away the local color
But they can't steal the nite

(We love the Downtown Life)
Downtown life baby
(Driftin' thru the day waiting for the nite, oh oh)
Oh
(Downtown Life it feels so right)
Feels so right
(It keeps me hangin' on) on

(Downtown Life)
Oh you'll be downtown life baby
(Drifting thru the day waiting for the nite to come)
Waiting for the nite to come
(Downtown Life it feels so right)
(It keeps me hangin' on)
Hangin' hangin' hangin' hangin' hangin' on

My baby knows she's got to go for this kind of life
'Cause city life can't stand to see the sunlite
Dawn patrol better leave me alone
'Cause I can only take it for so long
Going down isn't hard to do
The King of Clubs, and the Queen of Hearts fall too
She says, "If you believe this is only a lonely time,
Stay at home boy the blues are lost on you"
Ain't it true

(We love the Downtown Life)
Downtown life baby
(Drifting thru the day waiting for the nite, oh)
We're waiting for the night to fall
(Downtown Life it feels so right)
It feels so right
(It keeps me hangin' on) on

(Downtown Life)
Downtown life baby
(Drifting thru the day waiting for the nite to come)
To come
(Downtown Life)
And it feels and it feels so right
(And it feels so right)
(It keeps me hangin') oh
Downtown life
(Downtown Life it keeps me hangin' on)
Hangin' hangin' on to Downtown Life
(Downtown Life it keeps me hangin')
Hangin' on
(Downtown Life)
You want the downtown life
(Drifting thru the day waiting for the night)
Drifting, waiting, hangin' on hangin' on to Downtown Life
(Downtown Life it keeps me hangin')
You want the downtown life
(Downtown Life)
Hangin' on hangin' on
(Drifting thru the nite waiting for the night)
Hangin' on to downtown life
(Downtown Life it keeps me hangin')
Hangin' on to downtown life
This song is from the album "Ooh Yeah!" and "The Essential Daryl Hall & John Oates".
