“Movin’ On Up” (Theme to “The Jeffersons") (1975)
The Jeffersons was a stituation comedy spinoff of All in the Family that ran on CBS television from January 18, 1975 to July 23, 1985.

George Jefferson ran a successful dry cleaning business, enabling his family to "move on up" to a spacious high rise apartment.

The popular theme song, "Movin' On Up," was written by Ja'net Dubois and Oren Waters. The chorus, sung over pictures of New York City, is this:

Well
We're movin' on up
(Movin' on up)
To the east side
(Come on, movin' on up)
To a deluxe apartment
In the sky
Movin' on up
(Movin' on up)
To the east side
(Come on, movin' on up)
We finally got a piece
Of the pie.
