about

This is a filk of Petula Clark's classic song "Downtown" about the TV show Downton Abbey. Lyrics include very minor spoilers for Seasons 2/3 but nothing past that.

lyrics

When you're alone,
And your boyfriend has left you
You can always watch
Downton

When your boss is a jerk
And they all hate you at work,
It seems to help, I know
Downton

Just get yourself some zinfandel
And grab yourself some tissues
A healthy dose of fantasy,
Denial of life's issues
Will carry you through

The gaslight's much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles,
forget all your cares

And go to Downton
Things'll be great when you're at
Downton
No finer house, for sure,
Downton
Everyone's waiting for you

So go hang around
And let their problems surround you
You'll feel better, I know
Downton

Your life it may stink,
But that's all gone in a blink
Their lives will pull you in
Downton

'Cause Lady Mary's scandal
Won't affect her life with Matthew
And Mr. Bates and Anna
Will be happy ever after
Happy again

The gaslight's much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles,
Forget all your cares

And go to Downton
Things'll be great when you're at
Downton
No finer house, for sure,
Downton
Everyone's waiting for you

(Downton)
(Downton)

And don't you read the spoilers
Or you'll find your heart is broken
The first rule of the Abbey
Is some things are never spoken
Never again

So I know I'll see you there
You can forget all your troubles,
Forget all your cares

And go to Downton
Things'll be great when you're at
Downton
No finer house, for sure,
Downton
Everyone's waiting for you

Downton (Downton)
Downton (Downton)
Downton (Downton)
