    Lyrics

    He gets up each morning and he goes downtown
    Where everyone's his boss and he's lost in an angry land
    He's a little mad

    But then, he comes uptown each evenin' to my tenement
    Uptown where folks don't have to pay much rent
    And when he's there with me, he can see that he's everything
    Then he's tall, he don't crawl, he's a king

    Downtown, he's just one of a million guys
    He don't get no breaks and he takes all they got to give
    'Cause he's got to live

    But then, he comes uptown where he can hold his head up high
    Uptown, he knows that I'll be standing by
    And when I take his hand, there's no man who could put him down
    The world is sweet, it's at his feet when he's uptown

    Whoa
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Let me tell ya now
    Uptown where he can hold his head up high
    Uptown, he knows that I'll be standing by
    And when I take his hand, there's no man who could put him down
    The world is sweet, it's at his feet when he's uptown

    Whoa
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    Let me tell ya now
    Uptown, whoa
