"Taking My Baby Up Town" as written by and Joan Armatrading....
I was walking down the street, looking like a million dollars
With a pretty person, my arm when someone started shouting
They were hooting and a hollering
They were saying, "I should never have been born"

I said, "Baby, you hear that?"
You're listening to the voices of fools
I said, "Baby, let me tell you"

What they're trying to do
They're trying to make our love
A thing of the past but I said, "Aha"

The very next day it was early in the morning
The sun was shining on my back
I was feeling pretty rested, the air smelt good
And I forgot about the thing in the park

When they walked up then they passed me
You know, I didn't want to turn my head
But they started up again and those silly voices rang
And the clanging was too much for my brain

But I said, "Aha, what we've got is the best"

It was Friday, I had money, I was feeling kind of special
I was taking my baby, up town
The moon was high, the stars were bright
And there was lots of people in the street

I held your hand, you kissed me and then
All the people started to stare, we started a commotion
Someone making comments, morals
The state of affairs and I said, "What we got is the best"
