Stan Davis: Music

17 I Gotta Move It

words & music by Stan Davis
I’M HEADIN’ OUT OF THIS TOWN
AND HEADIN’ OUT ON THE DOUBLE
IF I KEEP HANGIN’ AROUND
I’LL ONLY GET INTO TROUBLE

A SITUATION HAS TO CHANGE 
IN ORDER TO IMPROVE IT
AIN’T NO MORE TO SAY
ES’CEPT, “I GOTTA MOVE IT!”

I’M HEADIN’ OUT OF THIS TOWN
WHERE NO ONE’S GOIN’ TO FIND ME
(WAY OUT OF TOWN)
IT’S TIME FOR HUNKERIN’ DOWN
LEAVIN’ MY WORRIES BEHIND ME
(HUNKERIN’ DOWN)

YOU CAIN’T CALL IT A CRIME
IF AIN’T NO ONE CAN PROVE IT
ALL THE SAME, IT’S TIME
TO SAY, “I GOTTA MOVE IT!”

I’D HAVE TO FACE THE FACTS
IF I REMAIN
SO I’M MAKIN’ TRACKS
ABOARD THAT TRAIN. YEAH!

I’M HEADIN’ OUT OF THIS TOWN
THIS IS MY FINAL DISMISSAL
(YOU’VE GOTTA GO)
I GOTTA HURRY IT NOW
THE TRAIN IS BLOWIN’ ITS WHISTLE

YOU CAIN’T CALL IT A CRIME
IF AIN’T NO ONE CAN PROVE IT
ALL THE SAME, IT’S TIME
TO SAY, “I GOTTA MOVE IT!”
I’VE REALLY HAVE TO MOVE IT
YEAH, I GOTTA MOVE IT ALONG!
Bye Bye!
