  • Streets are lined with people
    People who want to move, move, move
    How could all these people have so much to prove, prove, prove
    Oh I can only ask myself
    Oh where are you all going
    And won't you take me with you to
    Where all the sirens are blaring

    Uptight downtown
    I'll prove that's how to make the ground
    And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising
    Uptight downtown
    I'll prove that's how to make the ground
    And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising

    Streets are lined with people
    With nothing else to lose, lose, lose
    When did all these people decide to change their shoes, shoes, shoes
    Oh I can only ask myself
    Oh where are you all going
    And won't you take me with you to
    Where all the sirens are blaring

    Uptight downtown
    I'll prove that's how to make the ground
    And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising

    Uptight downtown
    I'll prove that's how to make the ground
    And now I know the temperature is rising, is rising

    Uptight
    Uptight
    Uptight
    Uptight
    Uptight
    Uptight
    Uptight downtown
    Uptight downtown
    Uptight downtown
    Uptight downtown

    Why are we fighting
    I don't understand
    Oh but the temperature is rising tonight Writer/s: ELLY JACKSON, BEN LANGMAID, IAN SHERWIN
