From the Album:            Dirty Mind  1980 (A)

She saw me walking down the streets
Of your fine city
It kinda turned me on when she looked at me
And said, "C'mere"
Now I don't usually talk to strangers
But she looked so pretty
What can I lose
If I, just give a little ear?

"What's up little girl?
 I ain't got time to play"
Baby didn't say too much
She said, "Are you gay?"

Kinda took me by suprise
I didn't know what to do
I just looked her in her eyes
And I said, "No, are u?"
Said to myself, said
"She's just a crazy, crazy, crazy
 Little mixed up dame
 She's just a victim of society
 And all it's games"

Now where I come from
We don't let society
Tell us how it's supposed to be
Our clothes, our hair, we don't care
It's all about being there

Everybody's going
That's where I wanna be
Set your mind free
Got my body hot
Get down
I don't wanna stop, no

As soon as we got there
Good times were rolling
White, Black, Puerto Rican
Everybody just a-freakin'
Good times were rolling

She started dancing in the streets
Girl, she's just gone mad
U know, she even made love to me
Best bed I ever had

I don't usually talk to strangers
This time it's all right
See, she got me hot
I couldn't stop
Good times were rolling all night
All night, yeah

Now where I come from
We don't give a damn
We do whatever we please
It ain't about no downtown
Nowhere bound
Narrow-minded drag
It's all about being free

Everybody's going
It's where I wanna be
U can set your mind free, yeah
Keep your body hot
Get down
I don't wanna stop, no

Uptown Uptown
Everybody's going, everybody's going
Everybody gotta gotta
Gotta go, Gotta go-go-go
Gotta go
