Song Lyrics


Song Meaning
Verse 1
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"
Workin' too hard can give me
A heart attack (ack)
You oughta know by now (oughta know)
Who needs a house out in Hackensack?
Is that what you get with your money?
Verse 2
It seems such a waste of time
If that's what it's all about
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
Across from the medical center
He's tradin' in his Chevy for a Cadillac
You oughta know by now
And if he can't drive
With a broken back
At least he can polish the fenders
Verse 3
It seems such a waste of time
If that's what it's all about
If that's movin' up then I'm movin' out
Verse 4
You should never argue with a crazy mind (mmm)
You oughta know by now
You can pay Uncle Sam with overtime
Is that all you get for your money?
It seems such a waste of time
If that's what it's all about
Good luck movin' up
I'm moving out
If that's movin' up then I'm movin' out
