Movin' Out (Anthony's Song)

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

Ah, but workin' too hard
Can give you a heart attack-ack-ack-ack-ack-ack

You oughta know by now (you oughta 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
I'm movin' out
Huh, uh, oh, oh

Sergeant O'Leary is walkin' the beat
At night, he becomes a bartender
He works at Mr. Cacciatore's, down on Sullivan Street
Across from the medical center

Yeah, and he's tradin' in his Chevy
For a Cadillac-ac-ac-ac-ac-ac

You oughta know by now (you oughta know by now)
And if he can't drive with a broken back
At least he can polish the fenders

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
I'm movin' out
Uh, huh, oh, oh

You should never argue
With a crazy mind-mind-mind-mind

You oughta know by now (you oughta 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
Yeah, if that's what you're all about
Good luck movin' up, 'cause I'm movin' out
I'm movin' out
Uh, huh, oh, oh

I'm movin' out
