[Brady Tutton]
Uptown girl
She's been living in her uptown world

[Dorian Tyler]
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she's looking for a downtown man
That's what I am

[Andrew Butcher]
And when she knows what
She wants from her time

[Andrew Bloom]
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

[Jaden Gray]
She'll see I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love with an uptown girl

[Mikey Jimenez]
You know I've seen her in her uptown world
She's getting tired of her high class toys

[Devin Hayes]
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She's got a choice

[Michael Conor]
Uptown girl
You know I can't afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in

[Camry Jackson]
She'll understand what kind of guy I've been
And then I'll win

And when she's walking
She's looking so fine
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mine

[Chance Perez]
She'll say I'm not so tough

[Marcus Pendleton]
Just because
I'm in love
With an uptown girl

[Sergio Calderon]
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

[Drew Ramos]
Uptown girl
She's my uptown girl
You know I'm in love
With an uptown girl

[Chance Perez]
She's my uptown girl
You know I'm in love
With my uptown girl
