Lyrics

You keep your New York Joys I'm going to Illinois Just as fast as I can You New York women think You'll make a fool of any man Play all kinds of games And you'll cheat if you can Use love like a tool Make a man a fool What a beautiful motto Got my money, that's it How can you mind if I split Going back where a woman Really knows the way to treat a man And people are friendly Without no hidden plan It's the best in the midwest It's a real darn city full of Good folks who come from home And when I get back I'll never roam far From my little Chitown Goodbye, farewell I might see you later Going to Chicago Sorry but I can't take you I come from Chitown Going back to my town

Going to Chicago Sorry but I can't take you No use in crying Tired of your lying There ain't nothing in Chicago That a monkey woman can do I got to quit you Can't make it with you When you see me coming, baby Raise your window high Hide your window to the sky, yeah When you see me coming, baby Raise your window high Catch me passing on the fly, yeah But when you see me passing, baby Hang your head and cry search your soul and Wonder why, yeah Hurry, hurry down sunshine And see what tomorrow brings Tomorrow, tomorrow Hurry, hurry, hurry down sunshine And see what tomorrow brings Tomorrow, tomorrow Well, the sun went down And tomorrow brought us rain Tomorrow brought sorrow You're so mean and evil You do things you ought not do My, you're a mean one first time I've seen one You're so mean and evil You do things you ought not do You used to be cool Now find a new fool Got my brand of honey But I won't have to Put up with you Hate you and your town That's why I got To put you down Goodbye
