Ooh ooh
Oh oh
Mmm mmm

Anthony works in the grocery store,
Saving his pennies for some day,
Mama Leonie left a note on the door,
She said "Sonny, move out to the country"

Oh, but workin' too hard can give you
A heart attack, tack, tack, tack, tack
You oughta know by now
You oughta know by now

Who needs a house out in Hackensack?
Is that all you get for your money?
And it seems such a waste of time
If that's what it's all about
Mama, if that's movin' up then I'm movin' out
Oooh, I'm movin' out

Sergeant O'Leary is walking the beat
At night he becomes a bartender
He works at Mr Cacciatore's down on Sullivan Street
Across from the medical center

Yeah, he's tradin' in his Chevy for a Cadillac, ac, ac, ac ,ac
You oughta know by now
You oughta know by now

And if he can't drive with a broken back
At least he can polish the fenders

And it seems such a waste of time
If that's what it's all about
Mama, if that's movin' up then I'm movin' out
Ooh, I'm movin' out
Oh, oh, yeah I'm movin' out

You should never argue with a crazy mind, mind, mind, mind
You oughta know by now
You oughta know by now

You can pay Uncle Sam with the overtime
Is that all you get for your money?
And if that's what you have in mind
Yeah, if that's what you're all about
Good luck movin' up 'cause I'm...

Yeah if that's what you have in mind
Yeah, if that's what you're all about
Good luck movin' up 'cause I'm movin' out
Oooh, I'm movin' out
Oh mmm, yeah yeah
I'm movin' out!
