"Easy Street" Lyrics
EASY STREET

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

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

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

Hannigan:
You stack the aces

Rooster:
You load the dice

Hannigan & Rooster:
Mother dear
Oh, we know you're down there listening,
How can we follow
Your sweet Advice to...

Rooster:
Easy street
Easy street
Where you sleep till noon

Hannigan:
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Rooster:
She'd repeat
Easy street

Rooster & Hannigan:
Better get there soon.

Rooster:
So, Sis,
whoís the hot tomato
In the fancy car?

Hannigan:
Personal secretary to
Oliver Warbucks.

Lily:
The Oliver Warbucks?
The millionaire?

Hannigan:
No, the billionaire,
Ya dumb hotel.
Lives up on 5th Avenue.

Rooster:
Hey-
Warbucks doesnít live
On 5th Avenue.

Hannigan:
He donít?
Where does he live?

Rooster, Hannigan, & Lily:
Easy street
Easy street
Where the rich folks play

Hannigan:
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Lily:
Yeah, yeah, yeah

All:
Move them feet

Hannigan:
Move them ever-lovin' feet

All:
To easy street
When you get there stay

Rooster:
So, what did the secretary want?

Hannigan:
Told me Warbucks is going
To adopt Annie,
This rotten orphan I despise.
Now the lousy kidís
Gonna have everything.

Lily:
It ainít fair!

Hannigan:
I know. It ainít fair!

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

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

Rooster:
Maybe she holds the key
This little lady

Lily:
To gettin' more bucks

Hannigan:
Instead of less

Rooster:
Maybe we fix the game
With something shady

Lily:
Where would that put us?

Hannigan:
Oh, tell her.

Rooster:
Give you one guess...

All:
Yes!
Easy street
Easy street
Annie is the key

Hannigan:
Yes sirree

Rooster:
Yes sirree

Lily:
Yes sirree

All:
Easy street
Easy street
That's where we're gonna...be!
