"Going To Chicago" as written by Count Basie and James Rushing....
Going to Chicago,
sorry but I can't take you.
Going to Chicago,
sorry but I can't take you.

Aint nothing in Chicago
for a monkey man like you to do.
When you see me coming
raise your window high.
When you see me coming
raise your window high.
And when you see me leaving
you will hang your head and cry.

You sold me to evil.
You do things you ought not do.
Oh baby, you sold me to evil.
Boy, you carry my banner honey.
Guess I'll have to put up with you.

Why don't you hurry down sunshine?
See what tomorrow brings.
Well hurry down sunshine.
See what tomorrow brings.
Today may bring sunshine
but tomorrow may bring rain.

I'm going to Chicago,
sorry but I can't take you.
I'm going to Chicago,
sorry but I can't take you.

And if you don't believe I'm going,
just count the days that I am gone.
