I gotta move,
while the streets ahead are sunny
fall in love with some honey.
oohh mama, I gotta move.

I just can't sit still,
In this small town,
there's nothin more here I hit the ceiling,
So in the morning I'll hit the highway.
ooohh, I just can't stay

I gotta move,
while the streets ahead are sunny
fall in love with some honey.
oohh mama, I gotta move.

its time I broke out into the open,
you know I'll settle down again some day,
I need some new land, and form a rock band.
oohh, I just can't stay.

I gotta move,
while the streets ahead are sunny,
fall in love with some honey.
oohh mama, I gotta move.

and when you wake up and I'm not around you,
my eyes will be racing into the sun, I run, yeah I run,
and all the people start to bring me down yeah,
I need new atmosphere to pick me up,
roxxane, understand?, yeah,yeah,yeah,
oohh, I'm on my way.

I gotta move,
while the streets ahead are sunny,
fall in love with some honey.
oohh mama, I gotta move.

whoa, I gotta move,
while my futures bright ans sunny,
make some noise and make some money,
oohh mama, I gotta move.

whoa, I gotta move,
whoa, I gotta move,
whoa, I gotta move,
oohh mama,
I gotta move

    General CommentThis song makes me so happy...when I decided (this spring) to go 9 hours away for college in August, hearing "I Gotta Move" truly inspired me to "go forth" and do what I need/want to do! There's nothing left in my town for me...BK must have felt this way sometime, and gosh, I'm glad he did...his songs have the simplicity necessary to understand but the meaning to move you...what a gem.
