Uptown Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
Whoa oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Verse 6
Let me tell ya now
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
Whoa oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Verse 9
Let me tell ya now, uptown
