Uptown Girl by Billy Joel, is featured in The First Time, the fifth episode of Season Three. It is sung by the Dalton Academy Warblers while rehearsing. Blaine stumbles across the performance when he visits the Warblers to invite them to McKinley's production of West Side Story, and joins them.

Lyrics

The Warblers:
Oooooh...

Nick with The Warblers harmonizing:
Uptown girl

She's been living in her uptown world
I bet she 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 ti-i-i-me
And when she wakes up
And makes up her mi-i-i-nd

Sebastian:
She'll see I'm not so tough
Just because I'm in love with an

Nick and Sebastian with The Warblers harmonizing:
Uptown girl

Nick with The Warblers harmonizing:
You know I've seen her in her uptown world
She's getting tired with her high class toys
And all her presents from her uptown boys
She's got a choice

The Warblers:
Oooh...

Nick with The Warblers harmonizing:
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 fi-i-i-ne

Sebastian:
And when she's talking
She'll say that she's mi-i-i-ne

Thad:
She'll say I'm not so tough
Just because
I'm in love with an

Nick with The Warblers harmonizing:
Uptown girl
She's been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can

Thad:
And now she's looking for a downtown man

Nick:
That's what I am

Warblers:
Oooh...

Nick with the Warblers:
Uptown girl
She's my uptown girl (Don't you know I'm in love)
With an uptown girl

My uptown girl (Don't you know I'm in love)
With an uptown girl

Trivia

  • This song has the most people getting solos in a number than any other songs the Warblers have performed.
  • This song marks the first appearance of Sebastian.
  • This song was the number one Glee song on iTunes the week it was released.
  • Uptown Girl (the vocal guide) is the most played song on Curt Mega's (Nick) iTunes because he wanted to make sure he knew it precisely, backwards and forwards. Source
  • In the show, the "oooh oooh" theme is only sung once while on the album, it is sung twice. This may have to do with the timing of the show.
  • This is the first song sung by the Warblers where the real actors sing the entire song. In Season Two, the backup vocals were sung by Tuft's Beelzebubs.
  • First time we hear Nick, Thad, and Sebastian sing on the series.
    • And only time Nick and Thad have a solo.
