Uptown Girl

Billy Joel

 

Uptown girl
Shes been living
In her uptown world
I bet she never
Had a back street guy
I bet her mama
Never told her why
Im gonna try
For an uptown girl
(Uptown girl)
Shes been living
In her white bread world
(White bread world)
As long as anyone
With hot blood (hot blood can)
Can and now shes looking
For a downtown man
(Downtown man)
Thats what I am

And when she knows what
She wants from her time
(From her time, yeah)
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

Shell (Shell)
See Im not so tough
Just because
Im in love with
An uptown girl
(Uptown girl)
You know Ive seen
Her in her uptown world
(Uptown world)
Shes getting tired
Of her high class toys
(High class toys)
And all her presents
From her uptown boys
(Uptown boys)
Shes got a choice

Uptown girl
You know I cant afford
To buy her pearls
But maybe someday
When my ship comes in (in)
Shell understand what
Kind of guy Ive been (Ive been)
And then Ill win

And when shes walking
Shes looking so fine
And when shes talking
Shell say that
Shes mine

Shell (Shell)
Say Im not so tough
Just because
Im in love
With an uptown girl
Shes been living in
Her white bread world
As long as anyone
With hot blood can
And now shes looking
For a downtown man
Thats what I am

Uptown girl
(Uptown girl)
Shes my uptown girl
(Uptown girl)
You know Im in love
With an uptown girl
(Uptown girl)

My uptown girl
(Uptown girl)
You know Im in love
With an uptown girl
(Uptown girl)
Shes my uptown girl

Dont you know Im in love
With an uptown girl?
(Uptown girl)
My uptown girl
(Uptown girl)
Dont you know Im in love
With an uptown girl?
(Uptown girl)
Shes my uptown girl
Dont you know Im in love
With an uptown girl?
(Uptown girl)
