I Used to Work in Chicago





    
I Used to Work in Chicago

I used to work in Chicago, in a department store,
I used to work in Chicago. I did, but I don't anymore.
A lady came in, and asked for some cake
I asked her what kind she'd adore--
"Layer," she said, so layer I did
I don't work there anymore.


I used to work in Chicago, in a department store,
I used to work in Chicago. I did, but I don't anymore.
A lady came in, and asked for a fowl
I asked her what kind she'd adore--
"A goose," she said, so I gave her a goose
I don't work there anymore.
