Lyrics
I don't wanna go uptown baby
Any friends I've got are downtown anyway
Spit me out on the sidewalk right away
I wanna chase some high hope lady

I don't wanna go uptown baby
Any friends I've got are downtown anyway
I'm tenderloining and it strikes me maybe
I've got wine that'll drive you crazy

Jimmy dragging me downtown lately
Said he's eating out of trash cans baby
Is shooting up inside a black cab crazy?
He's gotta pay for his Bond Street lady

I don't wanna go uptown baby
Any friends I've got are downtown anyway
Spit me out on the sidewalk right away
I wanna chase some high hope lady

Jimmy giving it downtown attitude
Jumpin' lights on Mountain View Avenue
He's picking ganja out the ashtrays baby
And taking bows with his Hope Road Lady
And cut a piece off of downtown gravy
To keep himself out of all that harms way

I don't wanna go uptown baby
I don't wanna go uptown baby

Jimmy dragging me down lately
Said he's eating out of trash cans baby
Shooting up inside a cop car crazy
To take the heat off his Banlieue baby
Breaking chains off speedball slavery
To keep himself out of all that harms way

I don't wanna go uptown baby
I don't wanna go uptown baby

Hold on tight and we never let go
Plant a sweet suspicion and just watch it grow
Hold fast heat don't let it break your sway baby, yeah
You know he'll play upon the little things you dread fe say

I don't wanna go uptown baby
I don't wanna go uptown baby
