Chicago (A Shinning Jewel By The Lake)

Verse 1
Walkin’ through the streets of Chicago - it's a beautiful place to be Everbody’s havin a good time - Just come take a look and see Have you ever walked the parks of Chicago - It's really quite a sight to see Picnics ‘n games and children - the best things in life are free

Chorus
Chicago Chicago The Shinning jewel on the lake
Chicago Chicago Come take a much deserved break


Verse 2
We have Jordan, Sweetness, Hull and the Fridge - Ditka, McMahon, Shoeless Joe The Pier, the Park, the Zoo, the Lake - Division Michigan Wacker and State It's the people there you must meet, A finer treat you cannot beat The people bring a smile to my face, For pride and love of this place

Bridge
