for anyone having a hard time this week...  

Downtown by Petula Clark

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go - downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and 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?

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 and 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

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, where all the lights are bright
Downtown - waiting for you tonight
Downtown - you're gonna be all right now

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and 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 ...



Fuck You by Anne Bradstreet

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
you can always go, "Fuck you."
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
makes you mad, just say: "Fuck you."
Just listen to the music of your fists against the wall
try to make a dent, or if you're really pissed, a hole
and say, "Fuck you"...

The fire may burn brighter then
You might get even more pissed off, fly into a rage
and scream, "Fuck you!!!" Your life may be shit, but yell,
"Fuck you!!" - no finer words, for sure
"Fuck you!!" - everything's all gone to hell...

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
step outside and say, "Fuck you!"
Maybe you know some neighbors' porches to go to
where they can hear you bray, "Fuck you!"
Just listen to the rhythm of a the gently flowing words,
the sign language equivalent is "flipping one the bird"
it sounds so sweet...

The fire may burn brighter then
You might scream "Fuck you" at assholes, and "Fuck you" at squares,
and it's, "Fuck you!!!" all the way down the street,
"Fuck you!!" - at everyone you meet,
"Fuck you!!" - everything's all gone to hell...

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

But this will never happen...
You can't forget all your troubles, or forget all your cares
So scream "Fuck you!", things'll be fucked for good --
"Fuck you!" - nothing will ever work,
"Fuck you!" - life is just a pile of shit...

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, fuck you ...

Glad you liked it. Since it's an American song from the 1960s, I wasn't sure if you'd be familiar with it, but it sounds like you are, and I'm so happy!! :)

Good luck with that poem, "Gone" going through, by the way! *smooch*
