Am       Am/E Am/G     Am     Am/E  Am/G
I'm gonna go   to the super - mark - et,

I'm gonna go   to the liquor store,
Am            Am/E   Am/G    Am     Am/E Am/G
    I'm gonna get me some cardboard box - es,

[Verse 2]
Am            Am/E  Am/G Am        Am/E   Am/G
    I'm gonna rent me a 'U - Haul' trail - er,
Am             Am/E Am/G   Am     Am/E  Am/G
Hook it on the back  of ...my old car,
Am          Am/E   Am/G   Am    Am/E  Am/G
    Call up some of my stronger bud - dies,
Am              Am/E  Am/G    Am        Am/E Am/G
    That's what your strong buddies are for!

[Verse 3]
 Am           Am/E    Am/G   Am          Am/E   Am/G
Give it to the Sal - vation Army, or the Good - will,
  Am     Am/E  Am/G  Am      Am/E   Am/G
We've got so   much ....junk it's a joke,
 Am               Am/E  Am/G  Am        Am/E   Am/G
Wrap a knick- nack in   some old news - paper,
   Am            Am/E    Am/G     Am        Am/E   Am/G
I know it was a present, but the damn thing broke!


[Verse 4]
Am            Am/E  Am/G Am    Am/E  Am/G
    Your old shoes, and  my old T - shirts,
Am          Am/E   Am/G  Am       Am/E  Am/G
 My strong buddies crave ice cold beers,
 Am                 Am/E   Am/G     Am         Am/E   Am/G
Don't throw that a - way,  it's a family heir -loom,
Am                Am/E Am/G        Am     Am/E  Am/G
    I've had that ash - tray for fifteen years!

We're gonna move,    we're gonna move,
       Am   Am/E Am/G

[Break]
             E7
We're gonna empty out our old place,
          D7
And move into a brand new better space,
Am       Am/E Am/G     Am    Am/E Am/G
    Move--------------------------------!

[Verse 5]
            Am             Am/E
We got the books, and the records,
Am/G     Am              Am/E
And the tapes, and the pictures,
Am/G    Am           Am/E      Am/G      Am       Am/E
And the pots and the pans, and all the breakable glass,
Am/G      Am        Am/E  Am/G      Am         Am/E   Am/G
    The living room couch, and the dining room table,
      Am             Am/E  Am/G    Am         Am/E   Am/G
The washer, and the dryer, what a pain in the ass!


[Verse 6]
              Am         Am/E  Am/G      Am      Am/E  Am/G
We've got the TV, and the home enter - tainment centre,
Am             Am/E  Am/G     Am        Am/E  Am/G
     The box spring, and the queen-size bed,
             Am               Am/E
We got the Christmas deco - rations,
Am/G      Am            Am/E  Am/G
And the bureau, and the play - pen,
      Am             Am/E  Am/G Am
IF WE  ...HAD A PI - ANO,   I THINK I'D DROP DEAD!


[Chorus]
 F                             G
       Brrrrrrrrrrrr! Oh, yes, yes!             Brrr, dah!
(We're gonna move,            we're gonna move!)

[Verse 7]
       Am        Am/E      Am/G Am       Am/E
At the end of the day, the old place is empty,
Am/G    Am       Am/E  Am/G  Am         Am/E  Am/G
And the new place hous - es all of our stuff,
  Am          Am/E  Am/G      Am      Am/E  Am/G
Unpack all the crap in the cardboard boxes,
    Am        Am/E  Am/G     Am        Am/E  Am/G
It wasn't that bad,  no, it wasn't so rough!


[Verse 8]
Am                Am/E   Am/G  Am                Am/E  Am/G
   But my strong buddies...   look a little bit grumpy,
   Am   Am/E   Am/G   Am          Am/E  Am/G
I don't why----- I  broke my butt,
       Am        Am/E  Am/G      Am       Am/E  Am/G
To - morrow we'll call  up the telephone compan - y,
    Am         Am/E    Am/G   Am  Am/E  Am/G
And get another set of house keys cut!


[Chorus]
 F                 G
We're gonna move,     we're gonna move,
          Am   Am/E Am/G     Am   Am/E Am/G
Yeah, ...move-----------------------------!

   Am    Am/E Am/G   Am    Am/E Am/G

[Break]
       E7
I can tell by the look on your face,
          D7
You just...  love our brand new better space, baby!
Am        Am/E Am/G   Am    Am/E Am/G     Am    Am/E Am/G
    Move-----------------------------! |  /  /   /    /  |


[Chorus]
Am  Am/E  Am/G         F                Am   Am/E Am/G
          We're gonna move, we're gonna move----------!
Am  Am/E  Am/G         F                Am   Am/E Am/G
          We're gonna move, we're gonna move----------!
Am  Am/E  Am/G         F
