Anthony works in the grocery store Savin his pennies for some day Mama Leone left a note on the door She said "Sonny move out to the country" Ah but working too hard can give you A heart attack, ack, ack, ack, ack, ack You ought-a 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 Mm I' movin out, mm oo oo uh huh mm hm
Sergeant O'Leary is walkin the beat At night he becomes a bartender He works at Mister Cacciatores Down on Sullivan Street Across from the medical center And he's tradin in his Chevy for A Cadillac ack ack ack ack ack You ought-a know by now If he can't drive with a broken back At least he can polish the fenders (Repeat chorus)
You should never argue with a crazy mi mi mi mi mi mind You ought-a 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 Then that's what you're all about Good luck movin up cause I'm movin out Mm I'm movin out Mm oo oo uh huh mm hm
