(Uptown, uptown)
Uptown (uptown) in penhouse number three
(Uptown, uptown)
Uptown (doo-doo-wop) there lives a doll just made for me
(Doo-doo-wop, doo-doo-wop)
She's the finest thing that you've ever seen, oh, ho, ha
(Oh, ho, ha, oh, ho, ha)

Uptown, I see her most every day
Uptown, but she never, ever looks my way
I'm just a bellhop, you see I can't stop
And tell her what I wanna say

That one of these days, I'm gonna have money
She'll wanna be my ever-loving, honey
It won't be long, just'a wait and see
I'll have a big car, fine clothes and then I'll be
Uptown, in penthouse number three
Uptown, just my baby and me

(Doo-doo-wop, doo-doo-doo-wop)
Yeah, one of these days, I'm gonna have money
She'll wanna be my ever-lovin' honey
It won't be long, just wait and see
I'll have a big car, fine clothes and then I'll be

Uptown (uptown) in penhouse number three
Uptown (uptown) just my baby and me
(Uptown, uptown)
(Uptown, uptown)
(Uptown, uptown)
