I got the surprise, the surprise of my life I had to stop and stare I saw a man dancing with his own wife And you will never guess where Chicago, Chicago The toddlin' town, the toddlin' town Chicago, Chicago I'll see you around, I love it Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago The town that Billy Sunday could not shut down On State Street, that great street I wish I could stay, I wish I could stay They do things they don't do on Broadway, say I had the time, the time of my life I saw a man who danced with his wife In Chicago, Chicago Chicago, Chicago Free and easy town, brassy, breezy town Chicago, Chicago Let me cool my heels right down at Marshall Field Come and walk with me along the lake To the great holler and hoot, all through the loop Shout how now to Mrs. O'Leary's cow No she-she, life is peachy Chicago, we'll meet at the Pump Room, Ambassador East To say the least, on shish kebab And best of squad we will see, and yet please Don't tell me sin is rampant and rife Think of that man who danced with his wife In Chicago, Chicago I'm in this city, what a wonderful windy town
