The Movin' Uptown Blues lyrics

The Movin' Uptown Blues

Gold
What do you remember’

Goldberg
I remember walking through the front
Door and saying, ‘Great party.’ (speaks
In Yiddish). And I can’t find my pants.


Goldberg
Can’t find my shoes
Ain’t seein’ straight

Gold
Don’t know the time
But I think it’s too late

Goldberg
Don’t know how I got here
Don’t know where I am

Gold
Forgot my name

Goldberg
Must be the booze

Gold
If I hadta name what I feel right now
I’d call it
‘The Movin’ Uptown Blues.’

Goldberg
We did too much too soon, so what
Everybody does

The city’s full of guys like us
Forgetting who they was

Gold
I think I ran a deli once

Goldberg
I think I had a wife

Gold & Goldberg
Walked in that door tonight and wham ‘
I’m living someone else’s life ‘
Don’t got a past
Don’t got a name
Can’t go back to
From wherever I came
Whole room’s spinning crazy
Someone make it stop

(Dolores appears)

Dolores
A promise made in the throes of passion
Is a promise to be kept. Violate that
Promise and the terrible things can happen.
Hell hath no fury like a woman’per-
former’legend scorned.

(she exits)

Goldberg
I need my pants

Gold
I need my shoes
Tomorrow we’ll be sober men

Goldberg
And Jewless Jews

Gold
Gold and Golden’

Goldberg
Gold and Golden.

Gold & Goldberg
Tonight we’re lost in
‘The Movin’ Uptown Blues’
