TONY BENNETT


Chicago Lyrics

Chicago (That Toddling Town)
Tony Bennett

- from his "Strike Up the Band" LP with Count Basie: Roulette 25231
- This version did not chart but
In 1922, two versions were charted: Ben Selvin (# 5) and the Bar Harbor Society
Orchestra (# 13)
- In 1957, Frank Sinatra brought it back to # 84

Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin' town
Chicago, Chicago, I'll show you around
Bet your bottom dollar you'll lose the blues in Chicago
Chicago, the town that *Mart Faye* could not shut down

On State Street, that great street
I just want to say
They do things that they don't do on Broadway, say

They have the time, the time of their life
I saw a man, he danced with his wife
In Chicago, my home town

They have the time, the time of their life
I saw a man, he danced with his wife
In Chicago
In Chicago
In Chicago

TRANSCRIBER'S NOTE: Original lyrics indicate that *Billy Sunday *, the
evangelist, could not close Chicago down-after all, it WAS Capone's town!. Marty
Faye was a Chicago radio DJ and TV talk show host from the 40/50/60s. He was
known for his abrasive style and voice. If you ever heard him, you wouldn't be likely
to forget him, though you might try to, very hard.
