    Uptown uptown uptown

    saved up for weeks just to buy yourselfthat dress
    you're such a star you look like nobody else
    work in an office/cage/a factory line
    working for peanuts
    one thing on your mind

    Uptown uptown uptown
    Uptown uptown uptown

    you go out dancing taking drugs with your friends
    you feel so good you never want it to end
    and when the comedown hits & monday arrives
    back in the office/cage/a factory line

    dream of

    Uptown uptown uptown
    saturday night
    Uptown uptown uptown
    lost in the night

    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    to get by in this town
    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    to survive in this town

    Uptown uptown uptown
    Uptown uptown uptown
    sometimes you wonder what you're doing with your life
    just work/consume/
    just work/consume'till you die
    sometimes it feels the only time
    you're alive
    is when you go out on a saturday night

    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    to get by in this town
    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    to survive in this town

    Uptown uptown uptown
    Uptown uptown uptown

    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    to get by in this town
    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    and it's so hard
    to survive in this town
