Uptown
She saw me walking down the streets of your fine city
It kinda turned me on when she looked at me and said, "C'mere"
Now I don't usually talk to strangers but she looked so pretty
What can I lose if I, uh, just give her a little ear?

"What's up little girl? I ain't got time to play."
Baby didn't say too much. She said, "Are you gay?"
Kinda took me by surprise, I didn't know what to do
I just looked her in her eyes and I said, "No, are u?"
Said to myself, said

"She's just a crazy, crazy, crazy little mixed up dame.
She's just a victim of society and all it's games."

Now where I come from, we don't let society
Tell us how it's supposed to be
Our clothes, our hair, we don't care
It's all about being there

Everybody's going
Uptown, that's where I wanna be
Uptown, set your mind free
Uptown, got my body hot
Get down, I don't wanna stop, no

As soon as we got there, good times were rolling
White, Black, Puerto Rican, everybody just a-freakin'
Good times were rolling
She started dancing in the streets, ow, girl, she's just gone mad
U know, she even made love to me
Ooh, best night I ever had, ah yeah

I never talk to strangers but this time it's all right
See, she got me hot, ah, I couldn't stop, ah
Good times were rolling all night, all night, yeah

Now where I come from, we don't give a damn
We do whatever we please
It ain't about no downtown, nowhere bound, narrow-minded drag
It's all about being free

Everybody's going
Uptown, it's where I wanna be
Uptown, can you set your mind free, yeah
Uptown, keep your body hot
Get down, I don't wanna stop, no

Uptown, ooh ooh, baby
Uptown, everybody's going, everybody's going
Everybody gotta gotta
Uptown, now go-go-go, go-go-go
They're going Uptown

Uptown, yeah, yeah, now, all now
Uptown, gotta go-go-go
Uptown, yeah, gotta go, gotta go
Uptown, c'mon, c'mon, you
U have to, you gotta go
Uptown, oh yeah, yeah
