Uptown girl
			 F#m           G
She's been living in her uptown world
	  A           D               Em
I bet she never had a back street guy
                     F#m	   G
I bet her mama never told her why
          A
I'm gonna try for an

D           Em
Uptown girl
                         F#m                G
She's been living in her white bread world
           A           D              Em
As long as anyone with hot blood can
                            F#m            G
And now she's looking for a downtown man
              A
That's what I am

Bb           Gm
And when she knows what
    Cm             F
She wants from her time
Bb           Gm
And when she wakes up
    Cm           F
And makes up her mind

G              Em
She'll see I'm not so tough
C
Just because

Uptown girl
 			      F#m           G
You know I've seen her in her uptown world
              A            D               Em
She's getting tired of her high class toys
                              F#m            G
And all her presents from her uptown boys
            A
She's got a choice

F            G               G/Ab            Am      G
Whoo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-oah

Uptown girl
                           F#m             G
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
          A               D               Em
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
                               F#m            G
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
              A
And then I'll win

Bb             Gm
And when she's walking
      Cm         F
She's looking so fine
Bb             Gm
And when she's talking
       Cm             F
She'll say that she's mine
G              Em
She'll say I'm not so tough
C
Just because
A
I'm in love with an
