[Verse]

Dm                   Gm7
Anthony works in the grocery store
C          Caug/E           Fmaj7
Saving his pennies for someday
Dm                Gm7
Mama Leone left a note on the door
           C           Caug/E       Fmaj7
She said, "Sonny, move out to the country"


[Bridge]

Dm                              G7
Working too hard can give you a heart attack-ack-ack-ack-ack-ack
Bb                   C
You ought to know by now
Dm                       G7
Who needs a house out in Hackensack?
   C7sus4       C7/E         F
Is that all you get for your money?


[Chorus]

   Bb           Bb/D     C    C7/Bb  A                A/C# Dm
It seems like a waste of time,    if that's what it's all about
Dm/C     Bb            Bb/D    Em7   A       [ Dm ]
Mama, if that's movin' up then I'm  ... movin' out

[Verse]

Dm                  Gm7
Sergeant O'Leary is walking the beat
   C          Caug/E      Fmaj7
At night he becomes a bar tender
            Dm                          Gm7
He works at Mister Cacciatore's down on Sullivan Street
 C              Caug/E    Fmaj7
Across from the Medical Center


[Bridge]

         Dm                         G7
And he's trading in his Chevy for a Cadillac-ac-ac-ac-ac-ac
Bb                   C
You ought to know by now
    Dm                       G7
And if he can't drive with a broken back
   C7sus4       C7/E         F
At least he can polish the fenders


[Chorus]

   Bb           Bb/D     C    C7/Bb  A                A/C# Dm
It seems like a waste of time,    if that's what it's all about
Dm/C     Bb            Bb/D    Em7   A       [ Dm ]
 Yea, if that's movin' up then I'm  ... movin' out


[Interlude]

| Dm | Gm7 | C Caug/E | Fmaj7 |

Dm                            G7
You should never argue with a crazy ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mind
Bb                   C
You ought to know by now
        Dm                     G7
You can pay Uncle Sam with the overtime
   C7sus4       C7/E          F
Is that all you get for your money?


[Chorus]

       Bb           Bb/D     C    C7/Bb  A                A/C# Dm
And it seems such a waste of time,    if that's what it's all about

 Good luck movin' up 'cos I'm  ... movin' out
