Chi - ca - go,  Chi - ca - go,  That tod - dl' - ing town,  Tod - dl' - ing Town,
Chi - ca - go,  Chi - ca - go,  I'll show you a - round,  I love it,
Betch your bot - tom dol - lar you lose the blues in Chi - ca - go,  Chi - ca - go,
The town that Bill - y Sun - day could not shut down.
On State Street,  That great street,  I just wan - na say,  Just wan - na - say,
They do things they don't do on Broad - way,  Say,
They have the time,  The time of their life,  I saw a man he danced with his wife,
In Chi - ca - go,  Chi - ca - go,  My home town.
