Crazy Downtown:Allan Sherman.
#6 AC and #40 on BB Hot 100 on
WARNER BROS. Records in 1965.
(A parody of Petula Clark's Downtown.)

INTRO: Bb F Bb Eb F

#1.
          Bb
Mommy and Dad are never nervous or mad
     F       Bb        Eb  F
when you teenagers go, downtown.
          Bb                             F
Daddy and Mom just stay at home and keep calm
              Bb              Eb  F
and watch the late late show, up..town.

CHORUS:
      Bb                               Gm7
Cause when you kids are gone we get to spend 
        
some time alone, here.
Bb                                Gm7
That's our only chance to use the bathtub or 
                Dm
the phone here..when you're away.
Gm Eb
Be-sides, we're stuck, where we are, because you 
Cm            C
kids took our money, you kids took our car and 
      F   Dm    F
went, downtown, where can you possibly..?
F   Dm    F
downtown, it's twenty after three.
F   Dm    F                           Bb
downtown, what do you mean by, "Let's Frug"?
     F     Bb F   Bb  F
(Downtown.........downtown..)

#2.
Bb                                         F
You don't come home till 4 AM cause you're roaming
       Bb                 Eb  F
in the streets somewhere, downtown.
Bb                                        F
We would feel swell if only someone would tell us
          Bb             Eb  F
what goes on down there, downtown.
Bb                                    Gm7
And every time we ask you what you're doing after 

dark, there.
Bb                                  Gm7
You just say that you were Frugging to Petula Clark, 
       Dm
there..that's what I mean.

CHORUS:
    Eb              F       Eb
So, kids, give your folks a break, because you're 
C
driving us crazy, we sit here all night and take,
F  Dm    F                         F    Dm    F
Miltown, swallowing pills so we'll calm down, counting 
                 F   Dm    F                          Bb
the hours you're downtown, you and your Frug and your Slop.
     F     Bb F       Gb        Gbm
(Downtown.........downtown..downtown..)


INTERLUDE: B..Gb B.....E Gbm......B Ebm.....E Gb

#3.
B                                 Abm7
While we're lying there we try to watch the television.
B                                  Ab           Abm
Then you call us up and say you've had a slight collision..
Ebm
there goes the car.
Bb                   Ab                     Db                
Besides that, you've been arrested so we've got to get up, 
                                     Gb  B       Gb
and we've got to get dressed and go..downtown....borrow 
              Gb  B       Gb                    B
a car and go..downtown....that's where you are, you finks..
Gb  B     Gb                        B
downtown, wait 'till I get you kids home.
 B   Gb           B   Gb    B   Gb
(Downtown.........downtown..downtown..)

OUTRO:(SPOKEN:)

There'll be no more Frugging, no Swim, no Jerk, 
 B   Gb           B   Gb    B   Gb
(Downtown.........downtown..downtown..)

no Mashed Potato, no Slop!..and you know what else? 
 B   Gb           B   Gb    B   Gb
(Downtown.........downtown..downtown..)
You're gonna stay home tonight, and your mother and I are 

going downtown and we're going to dance the Tango, and the 
 B   Gb           B   Gb    B   Gb
(Downtown.........downtown..downtown..)
Waltz, and the Foxtrot, and we're gonna do the Bunny Hop. 

That's a nice dance!..and there'll be no more Frugging! 
 B   Gb           B   Gb    B   Gb
(Downtown.........downtown..downtown..)

Is that quite clear?..NO MORE FRUGGING!!
 B   Gb           B   Gb    B   Gb
(Downtown.........downtown..downtown..)(Fade.)
