Uptown Girl

In the style of

Billy Joel

Lyrics

uptown girl
she's been livin' in her
uptown world

i'll bet she never had a
backstreet guy
i'll bet her mama
never told her why
i'm gonna try for an
uptown girl

she's been livin' in her
white-bread world
as long as anyone
with hot blood can
and now she's lookin'
for a downtown man
that's what i am

and when she knows
what she wants
from her time
and when
she wakes up and
makes up her mind

she'll see
i'm not so tough
just because
i'm in love with an
uptown girl
you know
i seen her in her
uptown world

she's gettin' tired
of her high-class toys
and all the presents
from her uptown boys
she's got her choice

oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh
uptown girl

you know
i can't afford
to buy her pearls
but maybe someday
when my ship comes in

she'll understand
what kinda guy
i've been
and then i'll win

and when she's walkin'
she's lookin'
so fine
and when she's talkin'
she'll say that
she's mine

she'll say
i'm not so tough
just because
i'm in love with an
uptown girl
she's been livin' in her
white-bread world

as long as anyone
with hot blood can
and now
she's lookin' for
a downtown man
that's what i am

oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh oh oh oh
oh oh oh
uptown girl

she's my uptown girl
don't you know
i'm in love with an
uptown girl
my uptown girl
don't you know
i'm in love with an
uptown girl

my uptown girl
don't you know
i'm in love with an
uptown girl
my uptown girl
she's an uptown girl
she's an uptown girl
