    Byezz!!
    ---------------
    Night Chicago Died

    My daddy was a cop on the east side of Chicago
    Back in the U.S.A. back in the bad old days

    In the heat of a summer night
    In the land of the dollar bill
    When the town of Chicago died
    And they talk about it still
    When a man named Al Capone
    Tried to make that town his own
    And he called his gang to war
    With the forces of the law

    I heard my mama cry
    I heard her pray the night Chicago died
    Brother what a night it really was
    Brother what a fight it really was
    Glory be!
    I heard my mama cry
    I heard her pray the night Chicago died
    Brother what a night the people saw
    Brother what a fight the people saw
    Yes indeed!

    And the sound of the battle rang
    Through the streets of the old east side
    'Til the last of the hoodlum gang
    Had surrendered up or died
    There was shouting in the street
    And the sound of running feet
    And I asked someone who said
    "'Bout a hundred cops are dead!"

    I heard my mama cry
    I heard her pray the night Chicago died
    Brother what a night it really was
    Brother what a fight it really was
    Glory be!
    I heard my mama cry
    I heard her pray the night Chicago died
    Brother what a night the people saw
    Brother what a fight the people saw
    Yes indeed!

    And ther was no sound at all
    But the clock upon the wall
    Then the door burst open wide
    And my daddy stepped inside
    And he kissed my mama's face
    And he brushed her tears away

    The night Chicago died
    Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
    The night Chicago died
    Brother what a night the people saw
    Brother what a fight the people saw
    Yes indeed!

    The night Chicago died
    Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
    The night Chicago died
    Brother what a night it really was
    Brother what a fight it really was
    Glory be!

    The night Chicago died
    Na-na na, na-na-na, na-na-na-na-na
    The night Chicago died
    Brother what a night the people saw
    Brother what a fight the people saw
    Yes indeed
