Streets are lined with people
People who want to move, move, move
How could all these people have so much to prove, prove, prove
Oh I can only ask myself
Oh where are you all going
And won't you take me with you to
Where all the sirens are blaring

Uptight downtown
I'll prove that's how to make the ground
And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising
Uptight downtown
I'll prove that's how to make the ground
And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising

Streets are lined with people
With nothing else to lose, lose, lose
When did all these people decide to change their shoes, shoes, shoes
Oh I can only ask myself
Oh where are you all going
And won't you take me with you to
Where all the sirens are blaring

Uptight downtown
I'll prove that's how to make the ground
And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising

Uptight downtown
I'll prove that's how to make the ground
And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising

Uptight
Uptight
Uptight
Uptight
Uptight
Uptight
Uptight downtown
Uptight downtown
Uptight downtown
Uptight downtown

Why are we fighting
I don't understand
Oh but the temperature is rising tonight

IAN SHERWIN, ELEANOR JACKSON, BENEDICT LANGMAID
