Uptown lyrics

Uptown

Oscar
The Borthers D?Armano have a ticklish treat!

Phil
A delightful little ditty with a hot new beat.

Brothers
Uptown
Is looking more like
Downtown
Which is looking more like
Uptown
Every day!

Black folks
Are sounding more like
White folks
Who are sounding more like
black folks
in every way!

Phil
Martha graham and E.B. White
Get wet with Ethel Waters


Oscar
While Langston Hughes pretends
He?s one of Mrs. Astor?s daughters!

Phil
Ha!

Brothers
Uptown
Is looking more like
Downtown
Which is looking more like
Uptown
Every day!

The rest of the world
May be lynching and killing
And dying-so what? C?est la vie!
Manhattan?s a bubble
Of rejuvinatin? jazzin?
Who cares about the rest of the world?

Oscar
Not me!

Phil
Not me!

Brothers
Not me!

(the Brothers begin to scat. Burrs
joins in)


Brothers
Uptown!
Downtown!

Burrs
Uptown!

Brothers
Downtown!

Burrs
White folks!

Brothers
Black folks!

Burrs
Straight bones!

Brothers
Queer bones!

Burrs
High brow!

Brothers
Low brow!
Bowry!

Brothers/Burrs
Broadway!
Uptown
Is looking more like
Downtown
Which is looking more like
Uptown
Every day!!!
