Uptown girl....... she's been living in her uptown world....
I bet she's never had a backstreet guy, I bet her momma never told her why.
I'm gonna try for an uptown girl. She's been living in her white bread world,
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking 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've seen her in her uptown world
She's getting tired of her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She's got a choice
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
And then I'll win
She's my uptown girl
You know I'm in love with an uptown girl
