Anthony works in the grocery store
Mama Leone left a note on the door
"Sonny, move out to the country"
A heart attack (ack...)
Who needs a house out in Hackensack?

If that's what it's all about

At night he becomes a bartender
On Sullivan Street
He's tradin' in his Chevy for a Cadillac (ac...)
And if he can't drive
At least he can polish the fenders
It seems such a waste of time
If that's movin' up then I'm movin' out
You should never argue with a crazy mind (mmm...)
You can pay Uncle Sam with overtime
It seems such a waste of time
Good luck movin' up
If that's movin' up then I'm movin' out
