Now this could only happen to a guy like me And only happen in a town like this So may I say to each of you most gratef'lly As I throw each one of you a kiss
This is my kind of town, Chicago is My kind of town, Chicago is My kind of people, too People who smile at you
And each time I roam, Chicago is Calling me home, Chicago is Why I just grin like a clown.* (It makes me jump up and down) It's my kind of town (Every bit of it is) My kind of town, Chicago is My kind of town, Chicago is My kind of razzmatazz And it has all that jazz
And each time I leave, Chicago is Tuggin' my sleeve, Chicago is. (Grabbin' my sleeve, Chicago is) The Wrigley Building, Chicago is The Union Stockyard, Chicago is. (The Chicago Cubbies, Chicago is) One town that won't let you down It's my kind of town
