On the right side of the tracks she was born and raised.
In a great big ol' house full of butlers and maids.
She says "no one, is better than I"
I know I'm just an average guy
No football hero or smooth Don Juan
Got empty pockets, y'see I'm a poor mans son.
Can't give her the things that money can buy
But I'd never, never, never make my baby cry
— Stevie Wonder, "Uptight"
She's been living in her uptown world
I bet she's never had a backstreet guy
I bet her momma never told her why
I'm gonna try for an 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
