VERSE 1
Where do we get that music
That puts that swing so hot in us?
Where is life, never dull,
Hum-drum or monotonous?
Hop a subway, hop a cab,
Shoot right up to Harlem
Where the population
Found a new sensation.
CHORUS
Screen celebs and stage satellites,
Social debs and High hat-ellites,
Masses, classes,
Doin' the Uptown Lowdown.
Where they spend their simoleans
Just to watch those Creolians
Skippin', hippin',
Doin' the Uptown Lowdown.
BRIDGE
You'll find laughter afer midnight,
That's their play-time.
Hi-de-hay time!
What price, Yeah, man!
CHORUS
Bankers with their Cinderellatives,
List'ning to those hot hi-yellatives,
Up in Harlem,
Doin' the Uptown Lowdown!
