She saw me walking down the streets of your fine city It kinda turned me on when she looked at me and said, "come here" Now I don't usually talk to strangers but she looked so pretty What can I lose, if I, uh, just give her a little ear? "What's up little girl?" "I ain't got time to play" Baby didn't say too much She said, "Are you gay?" Kinda took me by surprise, I didn't know what to do I just looked her in her eyes and I said, "no, are you?" Said to myself, said "She's just a crazy, crazy, crazy little mixed up dame She's just a victim of society and all its games" Now where I come from We don't let society tell us how it's supposed to be Our clothes, our hair, we don't care It's all about being there Everybody's going uptown That's where I want to be Uptown Set your mind free Uptown Got my body hot Get down I don't want to stop, no
As soon as we got there good times were rolling White, Black, Puerto Rican, everybody just a-freakin' Good times were rolling She started dancing in the streets Ow, girl, she's just gone mad, you know She even made love to me Ooh, best night I ever had, ah yeah I never talk to strangers but this time it's all right See, she got me hot, ah, I couldn't stop, ah Good times were rolling all night, all night, yeah Now, where I come from we don't give a damn We do whatever we please It ain't about no downtown, nowhere-bound, narrow-minded drag It's all about being free Everybody's going uptown It's where I want to be Uptown You can set your mind free, yeah Uptown Keep your body hot Get down I don't want to stop, no
Uptown Yeah, yeah, now, all now, uptown Gotta go-go-go Baby, got to go, got to, uptown C'mon, c'mon, you, you have to, you gotta go uptown Oh, oh, oh, baby, oh yeah

Erik from Minneapolis, MnThanks for tellin me what uptown is.I have lived here for 20 years.Let me tell you what Uptown is/was.A place for the counter culture like the east village in nyc.Creative, liberal, artistic and a place for us that don't fit the norms of society.Thats what uptown was. Now it's all yuppies and Corporate money.The freedom is gone and Uptown is just like anywhere else.It's not special like it used to be.
Chapman from San Francisco, CaOne of my very favorite songs. And Prince used to open concerts with this song.
Vincent from Littleredcorrvette.com, United StatesThanx Illya. Whoever u r! :D
