#MusicMonday – I’m not so tough…

Yes it’s Monday, yes it’s 4pm so it’s time for my opportunity to share a track of my choosing with you lovely people. All don’t under the fantabulous meme created by Drew Weldon, the Tattooed Book Geek himself!!

Now this track takes me back to my childhood. To a school performance where I played a very plump black cat at the age of 6/7 and my teacher at the time Miss Cahill played the head cat. All dressed in skin tight black leotard, heels with cat makeup and ears, she strutted her stuff across the stage to this track. I was in awe! I’ve loved this song ever since and I can’t hear it without remembering that school performance (couldn’t tell you what it was though)… I’m choosing to ignore the awful cover that some Irish band did #ruined…. enjoy….

Uptown Girl by Billy Joel

Uptown girl
She’s been living in her uptown world
I bet she’s never had a backstreet guy
I bet her mama never told her why

I’m gonna try for an uptown girl
She’s been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she’s looking for a downtown man
That’s what I am

And when she knows
What she wants from her time
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mind

She’ll see I’m not so tough
Just because

I’m in love with an uptown girl
You know I’ve seen her in her uptown world
She’s getting tired of her high class toys
And all the presents from her uptown boys
She’s got a choice

Uptown girl
You know I can’t afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She’ll understand what kind of guy I’ve been
And then I’ll win

And when she’s walking
She’s looking so fine
And when she’s talking
She’ll say that she’s mine

She’ll say I’m not so tough
Just because
I’m in love

With an uptown girl
She’s been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she’s looking for a downtown man
That’s what I am

Uptown girl
She’s my uptown girl
You know I’m in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
You know I’m in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
You know I’m in love
With an uptown girl
My uptown girl
You know I’m in love
With an uptown girl
