Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin' town

Chicago, Chicago, I'll show you around

Bet your bottom dollar you'll lose the blues in Chicago

Chicago, the town that *Mart Faye* could not shut down



On State Street, that great street

I just want to say

They do things that they don't do on Broadway, say



They have the time, the time of their life

I saw a man, he danced with his wife

In Chicago, my home town



They have the time, the time of their life

I saw a man, he danced with his wife

In Chicago

In Chicago

In Chicago TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: Original lyrics indicate that *Billy Sunday *, the

evangelist, could not close Chicago down-after all, it WAS Capone's town!!. Marty

Faye was a Chicago radio DJ and TV talk show host from the 40/50/60s. He was

known for his abrasive style and voice. If you ever heard him, you wouldn't be likely

to forget him, though you might try to, very hard
