    Lyrics

    From Calamity Jane..
    Calamity .. Boys chicagees the biggest noise in Illanois..

    I just blew in from the windy city
    the windy city is mighty purdy
    but they aint got what we got
    no siree

    They got shacks up to seven stories
    Never see any mornin' glories
    But a step from our doorway
    We got 'em for free

    They've got those minstrel shows
    purdy ladies in the big chapeaux
    private lawns
    public parks
    for the sake of civic virtue
    they've got fountains there that squirt you

    I just blew in from the windy city
    The windy city is mighty purdy
    But they aint got what we got
    Im tellin' you boys
    We got more life in Deadwood City than in all Illinois

    On the street was a dancing feller
    all dressed up in a suit a yeller
    and the dance that he did there
    went something like this.

    (does a dance)

    Calamity. Whistle

    (men start to whistle)

    Calamity. More

    (they whistle more)
    (Calamity does a tap dance)

    You shoulda seen me a window shopping
    window shopping with eyes a poppin'
    at the sites that you see there
    yes siree
    press a bell and a moment later
    up you go in an elevator
    just as fast as a polecat a climbin' a tree

    i heard claim hundreds came
    to a thing they call a baseball game
    Cigar stores revolving doors
    Men wear sideburns and they oughta
    cause a haircut costs a quarter

    I just blew in from the windy city
    the windy city is mighty purdy
    But they aint got what we got
    I'm tellin' you boys
    I aint a swopping half a Deadwood
    for the whole of Illanois
