There’s nothing like a lake
To bring the world together
This place has what it takes
Never mind the weather

Everyone’s from somewhere
Separated by 6 degrees
When winter’s in the air
Ain’t easy not to freeze

Lotta’ history in this city
And a lotta’ politicians
You know that’s why they call it windy
Pretty much the main tradition

Whatever’s in a name
Like Beantown or Gotham
The spirit is the same
From the top down to the bottom

So bring the Illinoise
It’s more than just bravado
‘Cause all the girls and boys
Everybody loves Chicago
