Uptown Girl – Billy Joel

| September 16, 2013
{tip wealthy girl}Uptown girl{/tip}  
She’s been living in {tip best part of the city}her uptown world{/tip}  
I bet she never had a {tip a man who is from a working class neighbourhood}backstreet guy{/tip}  
I bet her {tip mother}mama{/tip} never told her why  
I’m gonna try for an uptown girl  
She’s been living in her {tip Belonging to the class of bland, clean-cut, middle-of-the-road urban people}white bread world{/tip}  
As long as anyone with {tip some one who is passionate or excitable}hot blood{/tip} 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 {tip to make a decision}makes up her mind{/tip}  
 
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 {tip expensive cars, watches}high class toys{/tip}  
And all her presents from her uptown boys  
She’s got a choice  
 
Uptown girl  
You know I can’t {tip to have money to buy something}afford{/tip} to buy her pearls  
But maybe someday {tip when suddenly you become rich, have a lot of money}when my ship comes in{/tip}  
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 and 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  
 
Ohhh ohhhhhhh  
 
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
