  • You've done me wrong, your time is up
    You took a sip from the devil's cup
    You broke my heart, there's no way back
    Move right out of here, baby, go on pack your bags

    Just who do you think you are?
    Stop actin' like some kind of star
    Just who do you think you are?
    Take it like a man, baby, if that's what you are

    'Cause I'm movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Movin' on up, nothin' can stop me
    Movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Time to break free, nothin' can stop me, yeah

    They brag a man has walked in space
    But you can't even find my place
    There ain't nothin' you can do
    'Cause I've had enough of me, baby, bein' part of you

    Just who do you think you are?
    This time you've gone too far
    Just who do you think you are?
    Take it like a man, baby, if that's what you are

    'Cause I'm movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Movin' on up, nothin' can stop me
    Movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Time to break free, nothin' can stop me

    Movin' on up, movin' on up, movin' on up
    Movin' on up, movin' on up, movin' on up
    Movin' on up, movin' on up, movin' on up
    Movin' on up, movin' on up, movin' on up

    Movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Movin' on up, nothin' can stop me
    Movin' on up, you're movin' on out
    Time to break free, nothing can stop me
    Movin', movin', movin', nothin' can stop me
    Movin', movin', time to break free, nothin' can stop me Writer/s: PAUL HEARD, MIKE PICKERING
