She saw me walking down the streets
Of your fine city
It kinda turned me on when she looked at me
And said, come here
Now I don't usually talk to strangers
But she looked so pretty
What can I lose
If I, just give 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 you?"

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
Girl, she's just gone mad
You know, she even made love to me
Best bed I ever had

I don't usually talk to strangers
This time it's all right
See, she got me hot
I couldn't stop
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
You can set your mind free, yeah
Uptown
Keep your body hot
Get down
I don't wanna stop, no

Uptown
Uptown
Everybody's going, everybody's going
Everybody gotta gotta
Uptown
Gotta go, gotta go-go-go
Gotta go

Uptown
Uptown
All now
Uptown
Gotta go-go-go
Baby, gotta go, gotta

Uptown
C'mon, c'mon
You, you have to, you gotta go
Uptown
Yeah
