Chicago Girl

Words and Music by Bruce Kula

She can big-city walk
when she builds up the nerve
She can big-city talk
but she keeps it in reserve
Got her diploma at the old school Board of Trade
She knows the lingo and the way the games are played
Don't try to big-city talk to her

Chicago girl, Chicago girl
Of all the women in all the towns in all the world
Chicago girl, Chicago girl
I naturally fell in love with a Chicago girl

She makes a promise to keep
if she's not the only one
She'll go in with you deep
But she'd rather just have fun
She disapproves of playing baseball after dark
Should've saved those lights for the turns at Raceway Park
And save your Saturday nights for her

Chicago girl, Chicago girl
Of all the women in all the towns in all the world
Chicago girl, Chicago girl
I naturally fell in love with a Chicago girl

She's at home on a beach with a cool lake breeze
At the north end of her range
But if she moves on to the Florida Keys
The description doesn't change; she's still the same
Chicago girl

She makes a promise to keep
if she's not the only one
She'll go in with you deep
But she'd rather just have fun

Chicago girl, Chicago girl
Of all the women in all the towns in all the world
Chicago girl, Chicago girl
I naturally fell in love with a Chicago girl
