Sunday Samples 266

March 4, 2012

Yesterday I signed a lease on a high-rise apartment in the White Flint area in Maryland. I think it’s only fitting to pull out the theme from The Jeffersons: “Movin’ On Up”. This cover isn’t quite as good as Ja’net Dubois’ original version, but someone’s on a copyright rampage and that one is nowhere to be found online.

Well we’re movin’ on up (movin’ on up)
To the east side (movin’ on up)
To a deluxe apartment in the sky
Movin’ on up (movin’ on up)
To the east side (movin’ on up)
We finally got a piece of the pie

Fish don’t fry in the kitchen
Beans don’t burn on the grill
Took a whole lotta tryin’
Just to get up that hill
Now we’re up in the big leagues
Gettin’ our turn at bat
As long as we live, it’s you and me baby
There ain’t nothin wrong with that

Well we’re movin’ on up (movin’ on up)
To the east side (movin’ on up)
To a deluxe apartment in the sky
Movin’ on up (movin’ on up)
To the east side (movin’ on up)
We finally got a piece of the pie
