                         Landlord said this morning to me
                         'Give me your key, this lot ain't free
                         I can't get no rent out of you
                         Pack up your act and skidoo, you'
                         'I've been waiting till my Bill comes home
                         He's my honey from the honeycomb
                         He'll have money for he told me so this morning'


                         Because it's moving day, moving day
                         I rip the carpet up off the floor
                         Load your oil stove and out the door
                         Because it's moving day
                         Pack your bed quilts and get away
                         If you spend every cent you can live out in a tent
                         It's moving day


                         Moving day, moving day
                         I rip the carpet up off the floor
                         Load your oil stove and out the door
                         Because it's moving day
                         Pack your bed quilts and get away
                         If you spend every cent you can live out in a tent
                         It's moving day
