Chicago, Illinois Lyrics
Norma
Trendy trav'lers tend to talk
Of London, Paris, Rome, New York,
Like only they were stylish and unique.
But out in the Midwest
Is the city I love the best:
A town so smart it's spelling stars
With: C - H - I - C...Chic!
Chicago, Illinois, is like a shiny toy.
The prairie State is proud to sate
That it's its pride and joy.
The Windy City sweeps ya clean off ya feet;
POW!
Its charm is complete;
POW!
They're knockin' ya flat, this way or that
On ev'ry downtown street.
POW!
The White Sox and the Cubs
And other sporting clubs
Make living here a pretty nifty ploy.
Smack on the lake, this is the report!
Someday, they say, we'll have an airport!
When they say: "hey, I'm from Chi!",
They mean Chicago, Il-li-nois!
[Speaking]
Not Detroit, not Des Moines, not even Pittsburgh!
Poo poo pee doo...Poo pee doo pow!
[Cheers]
[Singing]
When they say: "hey, I'm from Chi!",
They mean Chicago, Illinois!
Chorus
Chicago, Illinois, is like a shiny toy.
The prairie State is proud to sate
That it's its pride and joy.
The Windy City sweeps ya clean off ya feet;
Its charm is complete;
They're knockin' ya flat, this way or that
On ev'ry downtown street.
Oh...Wow...Wow! Humm...Humm...Ooh...Ooh!
The White Sox and the Cubs
And other sporting clubs
Make living here a pretty nifty ploy.
Smack on the lake, this is the report!
Someday, they say, we'll have an airport!
When they say: "hey, I'm from Chi!",
They mean Chicago, Il-li...
Chicago is the killer.
They mean Chicago, Illi...
C-H-I-G-A-G-OOOOOOOOOOOO, Illinois, Wow!
