The Crystals - Uptown

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 man

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 am 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 oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Whoa oh, whoa oh, oh, yeah
Let me tell ya now

Uptown where he can hold his head up high
Uptown he knows that I am 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 oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Let me tell ya now, uptown
Whoa oh oh oh, oh oh oh
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 man

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
