Lyrics

I remember the way
Our sainted mother
Would sit and croon us
Her lullaby

She'd say, kids, there's a place
That's like no other
You got to get there before you die

You don't get there
By playing from the rule book

You stack the ages

You load the dice

Mother dear
Oh, we know you're down there listening --
How can we follow
Your sweet
Advice
To

Easy street
Easy street
Where you sleep 'til noon

Yeah, yeah, yeah

She'd repeat
Easy street
Better get there soon.

Easy street
Easy street
Where the rich folks play
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Move them feet

Move them ever-lovin' feet
To easy street
Easy street
When you get there stay

It ain't fair
How we scrounge
For three of four bucks
While she gets
Warbucks

The little brat!
It ain't fair this here life
Is drivin' me nuts!
While we get peanuts
She's livin' fat!

Maybe she holds the key
That little lady

To gettin' more bucks

Instead of less
Maybe we fix the game
With something shady

Where does that put us?

Oh, tell her.

Yes!

Easy street
Easy street
Annie is the key
Yes sirree
Yes sirree
Yes sirree
Easy street
Easy street
That's where we're gonna --
Be!

...Easy street!
Easy street,
Easy street!
Annie is the key
Yes siree
Yes siree
Yes siree

Easy street
We'll lead the lush life
Easy street
The lazy lush life
Better get there!

The crazy store in there
We'll soon be goin' there
Were you sleep till noon,
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Move them feet
Move them ever-lovin' feet
To easy street
Oh, that street
That's where we're gonna be!

Easy street
Easy street

Move that feet... to Easy street
That's where we're gonna,
That's where we're gonna,
That's where we're gonna stay

That's where we're gonna stay

Easy street

You know I'm tired of being the black cat
Of running the show down in the snake pit
So this is our chance to get out of this place
So come on let's run for it to

Easy street, easy street
Where you sleep 'til noon
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Running free, oh, easy street
We're gonna be there soon

Yeah, I'll be the girl who's strippin' in jewellery
The crowds will go wild when I sing
I won't have to look out on a fire escape
The view will be billboards of me

Easy street, easy street
Where we all get paid
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Move that feet to
Easy street
Where we get there when ya get there
When ya get there soon
