  • Everybody's got to dance
    With the blues sometimes
    Everybody's got feel some things
    They don't want to feel sometimes
    I'd buy you a smile in a minute
    But would you wear it?
    If I had one moment in time
    Would you com down and share it?

    I want to see you out on the street
    Makin' a scene for everybody
    I want to hear your voice up above
    The crowd and the noise
    Down in the Bowery

    I hope you live long enough to forget
    Half the stuff they taught you
    When it's all said and done I hope
    You've got your own set of rules
    To hang on to
    I'd buy you a smile in a minute
    But would you wear it?
    If I had one moment of time
    Would you come down and share it?

    I want to see you out on the street
    Makin' a scene for everybody
    I want to hear your voice up above
    The crowd and the noise
    Down in the Bowery

    I hope you live long enough to forget
    Half the stuff they taught you
    When it's all said and done I hope
    You've got your own set of rules
    To hang on to
    I'd buy you a smile in a minute
    But would you wear it?
    If I had one moment of time
    Would you come down and share it?

    I want to see you out on the street
    Makin' a scene for everybody
    I want to hear your voice up above
    The crowd and the noise
