​Uptown

This song is by Andy Mineo and appears on the album Uncomfortable (2015).

New York City
New York City
New York City
New York City

Uptown New York City where you can spot met
Uptown New York City where you can spot met
Uptown New York City where you can spot met
Uptown New York City where you can spot met

We in love with the invention, we don't love the inventor
On a quiet block they puff the loud, it be smellin' like it's timber
And they hit you with the fake smile, I ain't talkin' dentures
Starbucks on the corner, pushin' bucks for that rent up
Dippin' in all black like I'm venom
Keep it G, I'm not a star
But I'm raw like this denim
Them dope boys push the big body Jerome Betis
I got Santería hexes for my exes, but I'm protected
You heard that man got shot for his necklace?
That's a 1-8-7 up on 1-8-7
You know that uptown lifestyle reckless
When they eatin' mango and fried cheese for your breakfast
Baby, how you gon' complete your life checklist?
Spendin' every night watchin' Netflix
Time is so precious, gotta invest it where you spend it
If we prisoners to comfort, we judge our own sentence
I be uptown

Uptown New York City where you can spot met
Uptown New York City where you can spot met
Uptown New York City where you can spot met
Uptown New York City where you can spot met

I wake in that mornin', get in that café con leche
Don't y'all hold that azucar
My stomach's been showin' lately
Plus the crossover crazy
Don't get caught out here sleepin'
That's why they call Allen Irish, man, when I ball at Cabrini
I'm throwin' swishes
This right here that new school vintage
I been spendin' money tryin' not to spend up all these minutes
And I been present, man, look at what my gift is
Some push the white 'cause they ain't have the privilege
Let's get it!
Ain't no other city like the one I'm in
I got that Bustelo in my cup again
Jim Carrey with this here, I'm goin' dumb again
Me, myself and I, the only thing I'm up against
New York stayin' lit, rent high, payin' it
La Marina, bottled water, date night favorite
My bodega on the corner, I ain't even sayin'
They already know my order, they just started makin' it, whoa!

Ain't no other city make me feel this way
I been all around the world baby, but I'm here to stay
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ain't no other city make me feel this way
I been all around the world baby, but I'm here to stay
Oh-oh-oh-oh
There's no place like Uptown, New York
Ain't no other city make me feel this way
I been all around the world baby, but I'm here to stay
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh
There's no place like Uptown, New York
