Back to Uptown lyrics

Uptown (Audio)

He gets up each morning and he goes downtown
Where everyone's his boss and he's lost in an angry land
He's a little mad

But then, he comes uptown each evenin' to my tenement
Uptown where folks don't have to pay much rent
And when he's there with me, he can see that he's everything
Then he's tall, he don't crawl, he's a king

Downtown, he's just one of a million guys
He don't get no breaks and he takes all they got to give
'Cause he's got to live

But then, he comes uptown where he can hold his head up high
Uptown, he knows that I'll be standing by
And when I take his hand, there's no man who could put him down
The world is sweet, it's at his feet when he's uptown

Whoa
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Let me tell ya now
Uptown where he can hold his head up high
Uptown, he knows that I'll be standing by
And when I take his hand, there's no man who could put him down
The world is sweet, it's at his feet when he's uptown

Whoa
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Let me tell ya now
Uptown, whoa
