Lyrics

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
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
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)
