Easy Street Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I remember the way
Our sainted mother
Would sit and croon us
Her lullaby
Verse 2
She'd say, kids, there's a place
That's like no other
You got to get there before you die
Verse 3
You don't get there
By playing from the rule book
You stack the ages
You load the dice
Verse 4
Mother dear
Oh, we know you're down there listening
How can we follow
Your sweet
Advice
To
Verse 5
Easy street
Easy street
Where you sleep till noon
Verse 6
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Verse 7
She'd repeat
Easy street
Better get there soon.
Verse 8
Easy street
Easy street
Where the rich folks play
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Move them feet
Verse 9
Move them ever-lovin' feet
To easy street
Easy street
When you get there stay
Verse 10
It ain't fair
How we scrounge
For three of four bucks
While she gets
Warbucks
Verse 11
The little brat!
It ain't fair this here life
Is drivin' me nuts!
While we get peanuts
She's livin' fat!
Verse 12
Maybe she holds the key
That little lady
Verse 13
To gettin' more bucks
Verse 14
Instead of less
Maybe we fix the game
With something shady
Verse 15
Where does that put us?
Oh, tell her.
Yes!

Easy street
Easy street
Annie is the key
Yes sirree
Yes sirree
Yes sirree
Easy street
Easy street
That's where we're gonna
Be!
