I’m standing across Union Station
I almost fall asleep but the train roars past
The bus arrives almost on time with no seats left
It’s a fast – no rules – Nation
I hold on tight so I do not crash
I’m looking at the store fronts
And the office building’s glass
We turn off Wacker
I see the Tribune, the Bears beat the Packers
I get a feeling like what Kanye sung
But I’m thinking what’s this city’s Anthem?
For those where it’s not a homecoming
But an everyday thing, they’re not phantoms
Can you sing something cause it’s that time of year
When the deer flies in the sky with a red nose and antlers
Next to freezing rain, a shooting star, Jordan fade away
The winter, I want to hear about the summer
When I’m at the beach, on the Ferris wheel at Navy Pier
And the city is moving like the wind
It cools me off; my eyes are shedding those happy tears
Now give me that A – I like Phil – I – A, answer
Give me that C – H – I Anthem

Chi – City, Chi – City
C – H – I’d like to say
C – H – I’m in love
C – H – I found my one
C – H – come al – I – ve
Chi – City, Chi – City

Chi – town, Chi – town
C – H – I’d like to say
C – H – I’m in love
C – H – I wouldn’t want another
C – H – come al – I – ve
Chi – town, Chi – town

Everyday I awake seeing Miracles
Bigger than Texas, a Mile long
Throw some clothes on
A magnet to the sun I was headed south
And good guys dress in black
I’m at the new Comiskey
Sox win in walk-off, dramatic fashion
As I catch a ball that bounces fair
Off the bat of memories of Shoeless Joe Jackson
Dolphins are swimming at Shed
T-Rex is the shot of the Millennium
In the reflection of Cloud Gate posing in the Field
For photographs next to Buckingham fountain
With the Sears and Trump Tower the backdrop
I’m stopping by the Modern Wing
At the Art Institute, I see Obama
Call it the West Wing
This taxi is driving crazy to my place
So I can get ready for the nighttime
And I’m thinking drinks and tapas
There’s a Green Light in Chi-town
Live Jazz at Al Capone’s hideout
Hats off to the soulful minds
Who show there’s more than mining gold
Cause when it gets dark, Chicago comes alive
Chi-city, you got me, like Erykah – I do feel more than fine
I’m day dreaming in Chinatown with a Happy Family
Enjoying that deep dish pizza in Chi-town
Drinking a pint of 312 Goose Island

Chi – City, Chi – City
C – H – I’d like to say
C – H – I’m in love
C – H – I found my one
C – H – come al – I – ve
Chi – City, Chi – City

Chi – town, Chi – town
C – H – I’d like to say
C – H – I’m in love
C – H – I wouldn’t want another
C – H – come al – I – ve
Chi – town, Chi – town

Riding on the L, we’re roller coasting
By Chicago’s John Hancock, cursive in the sky
Loopty Loop, United, we’re altogether
Heart, left, right and Center, of the Midwest
And have you seen all that bling on Scottie Pippen
Six rings can’t fit comfortably on one hand
And have you been to Chicago in July
Just one look down the streets
There are more fly broads
Than cracks on sidewalks
Have you ventured out on the Great Lake of Michigan
Walking on waves on boats tied up
The Sailboat’s deck’s got people sipping champagne
Flashes of gold and ice, call it a shipwreck
Cause we’re killing it in packs of Bears
A couple of the best ever running backs
Walter Payton and Gayle Sayers
And STL may have had that swing but it’s long gone
McGwire just came clean saying he’s never been
Now Bo talk to me, you know Chicago
It is a star like the sun
Now everyone, sing it deep from your lungs
That C – H – I Anthem

Chi – City, Chi – City
C – H – I’d like to say
C – H – I’m in love
C – H – I found my one
C – H – come al – I – ve
Chi – City, Chi – City

Chi – town, Chi – town
C – H – I’d like to say
C – H – I’m in love
C – H – I wouldn’t want another
C – H – come al – I – ve
Chi – town, Chi – town
