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
Uptown girl 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
And when she's walking She's looking so fine And when she's talking 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 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
Uptown girl She's my uptown girl You know I'm in love With an uptown girl My uptown girl You know I'm in love With an uptown girl My uptown girl You know I'm in love With an uptown girl My uptown girl You know I'm in love With an uptown girl
Ken from Louisville, KyThat night in the bar, 3 gorgeous models sat next to him while he played piano - Elle MacPherson, Christie Brinkley and Whitney Houston. When asked if he ever had any interest in Whitney, Billy said no, because she was too young (16) and he was friends with her aunt (Thelma Houston, also a Columbia artist) and he said (with a laugh) that Thelma would have kicked his ass if he tried to date her teenage niece!

Peter from Coventry, United KingdomI remember this song from when I was younger.
Allison from Allentown, PaNo wonder why the first time I heard this song I was like "Is this a Four Seasons song that Billy Joel covered?" lol.
Val from Des Moines, IaMy frist song I herd by Billy Joel was Uptown Girls, I loved it, it's my top 2 favorite song. I would love to meet the AWESOME SINGER BILLY JOEL. My dad HATES THE SONG and whatever he hates I love!!!!!
John from Brisbane, United StatesKristin from Canada is right and I agree.Uptown Girl is so very boring and awful.If I was Billy Joel I would refuse to sing this JUNK!Everything else from BJ is better.
John from Stamford, CtThis one and "Tell Her About It" were the first (and only) two songs of Billy Joel I ever saw on video back in the 80's. Thus propelling me into more Rock and more Rock music and lesser Pop and Rap music.
Mike from Hueytown , AlYou can't help but sing along when this song comes on. Christie Brinkley may be hot but she reminds me of crazy internet date women hahahaha Hasn't she been divorced like 3 or 4 times ?
Megan from St. Louis, MoSomeone said he doesn't play Inocent man songs in concert anymore, but i went to a concert 2 months ago he sang "Innocent Man".
Sjoseph from Norfolk, MaBilly was horribly upset upon hearing the news of the annulment from a relative and not directly from Brinkley. Although he still vows he will always love Brinkley - his heart was broken when by hearing the news from a third party.
Dawson from Draper, UtI love that episode, I love how he wears that poncho lol good stuff.
Marlow from Perthmmm christie brinkley hohhhhhuuuhhh (homer simpson style)
Ben from Tucson, AzBilly Joel, the great imitator...on this album, though, that was the point and this song is almost more Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons than the originals.
Ashley Jade from Cleveland, GaBilly Joel and Christie Brinkley = soulmates. At least to me
Ken from Louisville, KyBilly Joel has not performed this or any other "Innocent Man" song in concert since the early 1990's since he beleieves that these were all novelty songs that don't reflect the type of songs he wants to be remembered for.
Jeanette from Irvine, Cathat simpson episodes HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!! where he discovers that his name is homer jay simpson! lol...................
Ydur from Knoxville, TnBrinkley might be easy on the eyes, but man, SHE CAN'T DANCE!!! Jerry's Kids have better moves...
Delbert from Austin, TxThis song is the peak of Joel's Prozac period!
Dave from Cardiff, WalesAlso a Number One for boyband WestLife in the UK in 2002, but their version was rubbish
Rhett from Melbourne, AustraliaHow unreal does Christine Brinkley look in this video? - she is also in the background of Billy Joels clip for Matter of Trust.
Kt from St. Louis, Moactually ... she did divorce him because he was gone so much ... she actually got the marriage annulled, claiming that there wasn't enough "consumation" in the marriage. (i think she said 8 months since the last time)
Brooke from Sedona, AzShe married one of the survivor's of the crash, really really regretted it.. and got a divorce from that guy right after she gave birth to her son that she had with him.
Rick from Buffalo, NyThe didn't seperate because of Joel's schedule. The seperated after Brinkley's helecopter crash. She claimed he couldn't understand what she went through. She later married (and divorced, I think) another survivor from the crash.
Joel and Brinkley met on a cruise. Niether knew who the other was.
Kristin from Kelowna, CanadaThis song is kinda boreing
Dc from Hilo, HiThe video was filmed on the two hottest nights of the summer in 1983.
