The Lyrics

In "Told Her About It," I warned of the dangers of following singers' advice. (Seriously, I love Billy Joel, but he shouldn't be giving advice about relationships.) I don't know if this wil become a series, but this one came to me and I had to do it.
(instrumental opening)

You're feeling lonely, life made you feel that way.
But if you follow her advice you will pay.
Don't go downtown.
No, no, no, no, no.
Woo-hoo!

I tell you once more, before you go to the core:
Don't go downtown.

You've got some worries, all that hurry and noise.
You think you're gonna find the right kind of boys?
Don't go downtown.
No, no, no, no, no.
Woo-hoo!

I tell you once more, before you go to the core:
Don't go downtown.

Don't go downtown... lose!
Don't go downtown... lose!
Don't go downtown... lose!
Don't go downtow-ow-ow-own!

Don't linger on the sidewalk with neon signs.
You will attract the guys, but not the right kinds!
Don't go downtown.
No, no, no, no, no.
Woo-hoo!

I tell you once more, before you go to the core:
Don't go downtown.

Petula said the lights are much brighter there.
Instead of forgetting, you'll get some new cares.
Don't go downtown.
No, no, no, no, no.
Woo-hoo!

I tell you once more, before you go to the core:
Don't go downtown.

Don't go downtown... lose!
Don't go downtown... lose!
Don't go downtown... lose!
Don't go downtow-ow-ow-own!

You're looking good on your way to movie shows.
But just watch out for places that never close.
Don't go downtown.
No-no, no-no, no-no, no-no, no.
Woo-hoo!

I tell you once more, before you go to the core:
Don't go downtown.

(instrumental break)

Forget the bossa nova, don't dance with him.
I know that guy: He will make your future grim.
Don't go downtown.
No, no, no, no, no.
Woo-hoo!

I tell you once more, before you go to the core:
Don't go downtown, town, town, town.

Don't go downtown.
No, no, no, no, no.
Woo-hoo!

I tell you once more, before you go to the core:
Don't go downtown.

I tell you once more, before you go to the core:
Don't go downtown!
