Downtown Came Uptown Lyrics

Artist: David Wilcox

DAVID WILCOX
DOWNTOWN CAME UPTOWN

I used to wear jeans
I'm in italian slacks
I had long shaggy hair
It's cut short and slicked back
I drank three dollar wine
Now it's cocktails at two
Because downtown came uptown for you

I used to think that coke came in a bottle or can
Silk underwear
Wasn't right on a man
Hush puppies and sneakers
Now it's alligator shoes
Because downtown came uptown for you

Well you told me that you love me
And said I could be your man
Ah but then you said
I had no more style than a rat in a garbage can

So you took me uptown
You made your driver wait
Taught me how to eat snails
And caviar on a plate
No more sittin' in the alley
With the boys drinkin' blues
Because downtown came uptown for you

BRIDGE

Well you told me that you love me
And said I could be your man
Ah but then you said I had no more style
Than a rat in a garbage can
My manicures at five
French lesson at six
Oh don't tell me you can't
Teach a dog new tricks
I'm going out on the town
My friends are spreadin' the news
Because downtown came uptown for you
I said downtown came uptown for you
Darlin' downtown came up town for you
