Chicago


NOTES: This song is rarely, if ever, sung in Chicago. In fact, it is strictly forbidden for visitors to use this song to serenade the hash. That being said, if you travel you’ll probably be asked to sing a few verses of this, so it is in your best interest to learn it. The chorus is sung to start, followed by any verse. The first line of every verse is repeated back at the singer as a question, followed by the final two lines in response to the crowd and the line “I don’t work there anymore” is typically sung to signal the end of the verse. The entire group sings the chorus.
