Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale a tale of a fateful trip that started from this tropic port aboard this tiny ship. Movin’ on up to the east side. We finally got a piece of the pie. If you have a problem if no one else can help and if you can find them maybe you can hire The A-Team. Well we’re movin’ on up to the east side. To a deluxe apartment in the sky. Sunny Days sweepin’ the clouds away.
