Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin' town

Chicago, Chicago, I will show you around - I love it

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

Chicago, the town that Billy Sunday couldn't shut down

 

On State Street, that great street, I just want to say

They do things they don't do on Broadway

They have the time, the time of their life

I saw a man, he danced with his wife

In Chicago, Chicago, my home town

 

Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin' town

Chicago, Chicago, I'll show you around - I love it

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

Chicago, the town that Billy Sunday could not shut down

 

On State Street, that great street, I just want to say

They do things that they never do on Broadway - hey

They have the time, the time of their life

I saw a man, and he danced with his wife

In Chicago, Chicago, Chicago, that's my home town
