about

A love song for all things Chicago, specifically its infamous native spirit. Cheers to you, brave drinker!

lyrics

I'LL BUY A JEPPSON'S FOR EVERYONE HERE AT THE BAR
AND A JEPPSON'S FOR YOU AND FOR ME
BECAUSE WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR THINK IT BIZARRE
HAS GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DEED

WELCOME TO TOWN WE'RE SO GLAD THAT YOU CAME
IN CHICAGO YOU DON'T NEED A CAR
SO WE'LL GET YOU REAL TRASHED IF IT'S ALL JUST THE SAME
DRINK OUR POISON AT EVERY NEW BAR

WELL WE'RE OUT FOR SLEAZE AND ADVENTURE MY FRIEND
CHECK YOUR DIGNITY BACK AT THE DOOR
CAUSE THE HOOCH THAT WE DRINK IS JUST MEANS TO AN END
CALL FOR DEEP DISH AND SLEEP ON MY FLOOR

THE MUSEUM'S EXPENSIVE, THE LAKE IS TOO COLD
AND THE BEAN IS FOR TOURISTS AND RUBES
BUT OUR LOCAL SPIRIT'S A SIGHT TO BEHOLD
SO LET'S FLUSH OUR WHOLE NIGHT DOWN THE TUBES

LET'S SKIP THE SEARS TOWER, I'M STILL SCARED OF HEIGHTS
AND I GUESS IT'S CALLED WILLIS BY NOW
WE'LL STAY OUT TILL FOUR AND WE'LL GET INTO FIGHTS
WITH A BOTTLE TO SHOW YOU JUST HOW

BE IT YOUR DRUG OF CHOICE OR A BIG LAST RESORT
THE RESULTS ARE THE SAME IF YOU'RE DRINKING MALORT

YOUR JEPPSON'S IS HERE PEOPLE, DON'T BE DISTRAUGHT
JUST GO ON, HOLD YOUR NOSE, 1-2-3
BECAUSE WHETHER YOU'D DRINK IT ON PURPOSE OR NOT
HAS GOT NO FUCKING BUSINESS WITH ME
