lyrics

Downtown Serenade
Words & Music by Elly Wininger (BMI)

There’s a good feeling this morning
As I hear the trucks rolling below.
And the noise and the danger surround me
As I step out into the flow.
And the people walk by ‘neath a cloudy sky
In a magical parade.
We are coming into town- Downtown Serenade.

Passers by ask me why I don’t seem to try.
I have put on a mask before dawn.
Some see the cool eye of confidence,
Others, the cold eye of scorn.
For we work and we die and we laugh and cry
In the buildings we have made.
All together one and all- Downtown Serenade.

La la la, la la la la.....

In the evening the street is a universe
Of papers that dance on the ground.
And the people have left me all alone,
There is nothing but dust on the ground.
And me and my friend share that red, red wine.
Remember how it goes.
Hey, it’s underneath your nose- Downtown Serenade.

La la la, la la la la.....

Passers by ask me why I don’t seem to try.
I have put on a mask before dawn.
Some see the cool eye of confidence,
Others, the cold eye of scorn.
For we work and we die and we laugh and cry
In the buildings we have made.
All together one and all- Downtown Serenade.

La la la, la la la la.....(2X)
