lyrics

red pants and the sugar-
man in, the temple street
gloom, drinkin’ chivas
regal in a four dollar room,
just another dead soldier in
a powder blue night, sugar-
man says baby everything’s
alright, goin’ downtown
down downtown.

montclaire de havelin
doin’ the st. vitus dance,
lookin’ for someone to
chop the lumber in his
pants, how am i gonna un-
load all of this ice and all
this mink, all the traffic in
the street but it’s so hard
to think, goin’ downtown
down downtown.

frankie’s wearin’ lipstick
pierre cardin, i swear to
god i seen him holdin’
hands with jimmy bond,
sally’s high on crank and
hungry for some sweets,
she’s fern in the· sheets but
she’s butch in the streets,
goin’ downtown down
downtown.
it’s the cool of the even-
ing the sun’s goin’ down, i
want to hold you in my
arms i want to push you
around, i want to break
your bottle and spill out all
your charms, come on
baby we’ll set off all
the burglar alarms, goin’
downtown down downtown.

red pants and the sugar-
man in the temple, drinkin’
chivas regal in a four dollar
room, just another dead
soldier in a powder blue
night, red pants turns to
sugarman and says every-
thing’s alright, goin’ down-
town down downtown.
