Who needs a house out in Hackensack Is that all you get with your money And it seems such a waste of time If that's what it's all about Mama, if that's moving up Then I'm moving out Mmm, I'm moving out Sergeant O'Leary is walking the beat At night he becomes a bartender He works at Mister Cacciatore's Down on Sullivan Street Across from the medical center Yeah, and he's trading in his Chevy For a Cadillac-ack-ack-ack-ack 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 moving up Then I'm moving out Mmm, I'm moving out You should never argue With a crazy mi-mi-mi-mi-mind You oughta know by now You can pay Uncle Sam with 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 moving up Cause I'm moving out Mmm, I'm moving out I'm moving out
