Won me in a poker game
Lost me in a bet
Then you got the nerve
To turn around and get upset
Movin’ on
You practice law without a license
Psychology too
But your PHD is in giving me the blues
Movin’ on
Go to third world countries
Kicking three-legged dogs
And by three PM
You’re living high on the hog
Held out for so long
Movin’ on
You may have learned to hustle
But you never learned to dance
When you fight the law
You don’t get a second chance
I may be right I may be wrong
Movin’ on
You get away with murder
You got a way with words
Speaking in a language
That nobody’s ever heard
Just singin’ that same old song
Movin’ on
Ten reasons to stay here
Eleven to leave
Not waiting around
For you to give me a reprieve
No more stringing this along
Movin’ on
