  • I'm up and I'm leaving
    Gonna spread my wings
    Gonna get out the country to do big things
    I'm up and I'm leaving
    Gettin' out of this place
    Gonna get on the Green Line to join the rat race

    And if you see my ma or pa
    Tell them that I ain't going far
    I'm going to the great big city
    I'm gonna buy what they call a car

    I'm up and I'm leaving
    Gonna spread my wings
    Gonna get out the country and do big things
    I'm up and I'm leaving
    Gettin' out of this place
    Gonna get on the Green Line to join the rat race

    Gonna leave the fields and the crops behind
    I'm gonna see what life's about
    I know I've been saying it for the past six years
    But now I'm getting out

    I'm up and I'm leaving
    Gonna spread my wings
    Gonna get out the country and do big things
    I'm up and I'm leaving
    Gettin' out of this place
    Gonna get on the Green Line to join the rat race

    And if you see my friend
    The one without a name
    Say to him that I'm gonna go
    But I ain't coming back again

    Now listen Luke to what I say
    If that Green Line comes around here
    Tell all my friends when they come to the city
    I'll buy them all a beer

    I'm up and I'm leaving
    Gettin' out of this place
    Gonna get on the Green Line to join the rat race
    I'm up and I'm leaving
    Gonna spread my wings
    Gonna get out the country and do big things
