New Song by Michael Droste Sung by Jimmy G

Lyrics To The Chicago Song:

Chicago (A Shinning Jewel By The Lake)

Verse 1

Walkin’ through the streets of Chicago
It's a beautiful place to be
Everybody’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

Chorus

Chicago Chicago The Shinning Jewel on the Lake
Chicago Chicago Come take a much Deserved Break

Bridge

Rayner and Goose - Kukla Fran 'n Ollie
Thomas and Bozo made us all feel jolly
Buddy Guy Chess Records too
The Jazz Showcase is waitin' there for you
Muddy Waters and the Blues Brothers
Sweet Home Chicago is like no other

Chorus

Chicago Chicago The Shinning Jewel on the Lake
Chicago Chicago Come take a much Deserved Break

Chorus

Chicago Chicago The Shinning Jewel on the Lake
Chicago Chicago Come take a much Deserved Break
