Easy Street

This song is by Dorothy Loudon and appears on the musical soundtrack Annie - Original Broadway Cast Recording (1977).

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 and 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 and Hannigan:
She'd repeat
Easy street
Better get there soon.

Rooster, Hannigan, and Lily:
Easy street
Easy street
Where the rich folks play
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Move them feet

Hannigan:
Move them ever-lovin' feet

Rooster, Hannigan, and Lily:
To easy street

Hannigan:
Easy street

Rooster, Hannigan, and Lily:
When you get there stay

Rooster:
It ain't fair
How we scrounge
For three of 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
That little lady

Hannigan:
To gettin' more bucks

Rooster:
Instead of less
Maybe we fix the game
With something shady

Lily:
Where does that put us?

Hannigan:
Oh, tell her.

Rooster:
If you want: yes!

Rooster, Hannigan, and Lily:
Yes!

Easy street
Easy street
Annie is the key
Yes sirree
Yes sirree
Yes sirree

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