Uptown Lyrics

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 man

But then he comes uptown
Each ev'nin' 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 am 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 oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Let me tell ya now

Uptown where he can hold his head up high
Uptown he knows that I am 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 oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Let me tell ya now, uptown
