She saw me walking down
The streets of your fine city
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
Just give her a little ear?

"What's up, little girl?
I have 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
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 it's 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 wanna be
Uptown, set your mind free
Uptown, got my body hot
Get down, I don't wanna stop, no

As soon as we got there
Good times were rolling
White, black, Puerto Rican
Everybody just a-freaking
Good times were rolling

She started dancing in the streets
Girl, she's just gone mad
You know, she even made love to me
Best night I ever had, yeah

I never talk to strangers
This time it's all right
See, she got me hot, I couldn't stop
Good times were rolling all night
All night, yeah

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 wanna be
Uptown, you can set your mind free, yeah
Uptown, keep your body hot
Get down, I don't wanna stop, no

Uptown, uptown
Everybody's going, everybody's going
Everybody, got to, got to
Uptown, now go, go, go, go, go, go, got to go
They're going uptown, uptown
