I'm gonna move, baby
Way out on the outskirts of town
Yeah, I'm gonna move, yeah, baby
Way out on the outskirts of town

Yeah, I don't want nobody
Always hangin' around
And that means you, yeah

I'm gonna tell you, baby
We gonna move away from here, yeah
I don't want no iceman, I'm gonna freeze him
I'm-a buy me a Frigidaire

When we move, yeah baby
Way out on the outskirts of town
I don't want nobody, yeah baby
All, always hangin' around

I'm gonna bring my own groceries, baby
Yeah, I'm gonna bring them everyday
That'll keep that grocery man, I don't like him anyhow
I'm gonna keep him away, yeah

When we move, babe, way on the outskirts of town
Yeah, I don't want nobody, baby
Always, always hangin' around

It may seem funny, honey, baby
Funny as can be, lord
But if you're having them come crushing lord

Yeah, when we move, yeah baby, way out on the outskirts of town
Yeah, I don't want nobody, lord
All, always hangin' around
