A tribute to July 30!

Apologies to Petula Clark  “Downtown”

A tribute to July 30

When you're at home and feeling quite roamy
You can’t always go, downtown
When you’ve got worries, all the noise and the worry
Will not help I know, downtown

Just listen to the rumble of the nibblers in the city
Linger on the sidewalk
It's not looking very pretty
What will you choose?

The lights are much darker there
You’ll remember your troubles
You’ll remember your fears, so no

Downtown, but things will be great when we’ve
Rebuilt, no finer place for sure
Downtown, the futures waiting for you

Don’t hang around and let your problems surround you
There are moves afoot, downtown,
On July Thirty the future we will all court, downtown

Just listen to the words of  leading politicians
Hear what they will to reverse the bad attrition
Happy again
The lights will be brighter there
You’ll forget all your troubles
Forget all you tears, so go

Downtown, where all the plans are bright
Downtown waiting for you alright
Downtown , its going to be alright now.


And you will find a some people kind
From the CCDU
Who have a brilliant plan in mind
A gentle hand, to guide you along

So maybe I’ll see you there
We can forget all our troubles
And give a big cheer and go

Things will be great when we’re downtown
Don't wait a minute more
Downtown everything’s waiting for you.
