Tenement Medley

Tenement Medley

Uptown
(Thomas McKinney)

He gets up each morning and he goes downtown
Where everyone’s his boss
And he’s lost
In an angry land
He’s a little man

But then he comes uptown
Each evening to my tenement
Uptown where folks don’t have to pay much rent
And when he’s there with me
He can see that he’s everything
The man is tall
He don’t crawl
He’s a king

Downtown he’s just one of a million guys
He don’t get no breaks
And he takes all they got to give
‘Cause he’s got to live

But then he comes uptown
Where he can hold his head up high
And uptown he knows I’m gonna be standing by
And when I take his hand
There’s no man who can put him down, down, down
Oh, the world’s so sweet at his feet when he’s uptown
Whoa-oo-oh-whoa
When he’s uptown
Whoa-oo-whoa-oo-whoa-oh-oh

Don’t Say Nothing (Bad About My Baby)
(Gerry Goffin, Carole King)

Don’t say nothing bad about my baby
Don’t say nothing bad about my baby
Don’t say nothing bad about my baby
Don’t say nothing bad about my baby
Don’t say nothing bad about my baby
Don’t say nothing bad about my baby
Don’t say nothing bad about my baby
Don’t

Da Do Run Run
(Phil Spector, Ellie Greenwich, Jeff Barry)

Met him on a Monday and my heart stood still
Da doo run run run da doo run run
Somebody told me that his name was Bill
Da doo run run run da doo run run
Whoa, my heart stood still
Yeah, his name was Bill
And when he walked me home
Da doo run run run da doo run run

He knew what he was doing when he caught my eye
Da doo run run run da doo run run
He looked kind of quiet, but my, oh my
Da doo run run run da doo run run
Oh, he caught my eye
My, my, my, my, oh my
And when he walked me home
Da doo run run run da doo run run

Here we go
Da doo run run run da doo run run
Da doo run run run da doo run run
Da doo run run run da doo run run
Da do run run, hey
