    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 till 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!
