movin’ out (anthony’s song) lyrics – billy joel

anthony works in the grocery store
savin’ his pennies for someday
mama leone 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-ak-ak-ak-ak-ak
you oughta know by now
who needs a house out in hackensack?
is that all you get for your money?

chorus
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.

sergeant o’leary is walkin’ the beat
at night he becomes a bartender
he works at mister cacciatore’s down
on sullivan street
‘cross from the medical center
and-and he’s tradin’ in his chevy for a cadillac-ac-ac-ac-ac-ac
you oughta know by now
and if he can’t drive
with a broken back
at least he can polish the fenders

chorus

you should never argue with a crazy mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mind
you oughta know by now
you can pay uncle sam with overtime
is that all you get for your money?

chorus
