Uptown, in penthouse number three
Uptown, there lives a doll just made for me
She's the finest thing that you've ever seen, oh ho ha

Uptown, I see her most every day

Yeah, one of these days, I'm gonna have money
She'll wanna be my ever-lovin' honey
It won't be long, just wait and see
I'll have a big car, fine clothes
And then I'll be
Uptown, in penthouse number three
Uptown, just my baby and me
