Lyric "Uptown"

Roy Orbison

Uptown, in penhouse 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
Uptown, but she never ever looks my way
I'm just a bellhop, you see I can't stop
And tell her what I wanna say

That 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

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

Roy Orbison

Roy Kelton Orbison (April 23, 1936 – December 6, 1988), nicknamed the Big O, was an American singer-songwriter and musician, known for his distinctive, impassioned voice, complex compositions and dark emotional ballads. The combination led many critics to describe his music as operatic, giving him the sobriquet "the Caruso of Rock". Between 1960 and 1964, 22 of his songs placed on the Billboard Top 40, including "Only the Lonely" (1960), "Crying" (1961), and "Oh, Pretty Woman" (1964).
