  • She saw me walking down the streets
    Of your fine city
    It 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, uh, just give her a little ear?
    "What's up little girl?"
    "I ain't 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
    I 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 want to be
    Set your mind free
    Got my body hot
    Get down
    I don't want to stop, no
    As soon as we got there
    Good times were rolling
    White, Black, Puerto Rican
    Everybody just a-freakin'
    Good times were rolling

    She started dancing in the streets
    Ow, girl, she's just gone mad
    you know, she even made love to me
    Ooh, best night I ever had
    Ah yeah
    I never talk to strangers
    But this time it's all right
    See, she got me hot, ah
    I couldn't stop, ah
    Good times were rolling all night All night, yeah
    Now 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 want to be
    you can set your mind free, yeah
    Keep your body hot
    Get down
    I don't want to stop, no
    Oh, oh, yeah
    Everybody's going, everybody's going
    Everybody gotta gotta
    Now go-go-go, go-go-go
    They're going

    Yeah, yeah, now, all now
    Gotta go-go-go
    Yeah, gotta go, gotta go
    c'mon, c'mon, you
    you have to, you gotta go
    oh yeah
