Tony Bennett
Written by Fred Fisher

- from his "Strike Up the Band" lp with Count Basie: Roulette 25231

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.
