The Lyrics

I'm taking an indefinite break from writing parodies on this site, so I'm really gonna miss it. But I have one more to write, and it's about my hometown. Naturally, since this song is about Chicago, the "great big lake" in question is Lake Michigan. Enjoy!
The old Chi-town is the same, as I step off the El-Train
And there to meet me are my friends and family
Down the street I walk and there runs Jenny
Eyes are shining bright as pennies
It's good to see the great big lake of home

Yes, they'll all come around me as the happiness surrounds me
It's good to see the great big lake of home

Wrigley Field's still standing, and the air is warm and dry
And there's that old rooftop that I used to sit on
Then I sail out on the clear blue water
Going past the big Sears Tower
It's good to see the great big lake of home

Yes, they'll all come around me as the happiness surrounds me
It's good to see the great big lake of home

Then I awake and look around me...Soldier Field surrounds me...
And I realize that I was only dreaming
I'll take you shopping in the downtown Loop
Then we can ride on my brand-new sailboat
And sail out on the great big lake of home

Yes, they'll all come to see me from the rooftops over old Wrigley
And I'd love to sail the great big lake of home

Ah, yes, the Lake... otherwise known as the East Side of Chicago.
