Various Artists - Uptown Lyrics


[CHO: A] UPTOWN…MY SIGHTS ARE HIGHER THAN UPTOWN…
UPTOWN…LIGHTS MAY BURN BRIGHTER UPTOWN…
BUT THE NEON LIGHTS…AND THE BIG FINE CARS…
POLITICIANS AND THE MOVIE STARS…SLAVES OF GREED…
WHY DO I NEED TO MOVE UPTOWN?

[1] Turn on my TV …..and there on the set……
Is a preacher telling me…. just what I can get….
If I dial a thou…he’s promised me…
To have riches untold….. and live like dynasty….
But I’ve got my sights set on the higher ground…
The purpose of my life has nothing to do…
With moving uptown…[uptown]….

[CHO: B] UPTOWN…[UPTOWN] MY SIGHTS ARE HIGHER THAN UPTOWN…
UPTOWN…[UPTOWN..UPTOWN]… LIGHTS MAY BURN BRIGHTER UPTOWN…
BUT THE BIG GLASS CHURCHES..AND THE COLLEGE DEGREES…
RESULTLESS ACTIONS THEY CALL MINISTRY….…
THEY LOST THE FIRE…WHEN THEY CHANGED THEIR DESIRE…
TO MOVE UPTOWN..

Turn-A-Round: Guitars

[2] When preachers were men of God..…and not celebrities..
When enterprise was not…. another word for ministry….
When songs were written from the heart…not for the dollar bill…..
When we really loved the people…not the halls we could fill
Maturing in your image…Lord is how we should be found…
Not competing with the world for exclusive rights
To live uptown….[to live uptown]….

[CHO: A] UPTOWN…[UPTOWN] MY SIGHTS ARE HIGHER THAN UPTOWN…
UPTOWN…[UPTOWN…UPTOWN]…LIGHTS MAY BURN BRIGHTER UPTOWN…
BUT THE NEON LIGHTS…AND THE BIG FINE CARS…
POLITICIANS AND THE MOVIE STARS…SLAVES OF GREED…
WHY DO I NEED TO MOVE UPTOWN?

[TAG:] Why do I need to move uptown….
To move uptown…
