"Chicago (That Toddlin' Town)" is a 1922 Fred Fisher song that was made famous by Frank Sinatra. The song talks about a love of the US city, Chicago, Illinois.

The song was featured in the CD re-release of Frank Sinatra's 1958 album Come Fly With Me. The song is the final track of the original album and tells the glory of going traveling world-wide, but the song ends with a bit of "relief" of coming back home.

Lyrics Edit

Chicago, Chicago that toddling town
Chicago, Chicago I will show you around - I love it
Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago
The town that Billy Sunday couldn't shut down

On State Street, that great street, I just want to say
They do things they don't do on Broadway
They have the time, the time of their life
I saw a man, he danced with his wife
In Chicago, Chicago my home town

Chicago, Chicago that toddlin' town
Chicago, Chicago I'll show you around - I love it
Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago
The town that Billy Sunday could not shut down

On State Street, that great street, I just want to say
They do things that they never do on Broadway — say
They have the time, the time of their life
I saw a man and he danced with his wife
In Chicago, Chicago, Chicago — that's my home town
