Song lyrics
From calamity jane..
Calamity .. Boys chicagees the biggest noise in illanoise..

I just blew in from the windy city
the windy city is mighty purdy
but they aint got what we got
no sir e

They got shacks up to seven stories
Never see any mornin' glories
But a step from our doorway
We got em for free

Theyve got those minstrel shows
purdy ladys in the big chapos
private lawns
public parks
for the sake of civic virtue
they've got fountains there that squirt you

I just blew in from the windy city
The windy city is mighty purdy
But they aint got what we got
Im tellin you boys
We got more life in Deadwood city than the whole of Ilanoy

On the street was a dancing feller
all dressed up in a suit a yeller
and the dance that he did there
went something like this.

( does a dance)

Calamity . Whistle

(men start to whistle)

Calamity. More

(they whistle more)
(Calamity does a tap dance)

U shoulda seen me a window shopping
window shopping with eyes a popping
at the sites that u see there
yes sir e
press a bell and a moment later
up u go in an elevator
just as fast as a polecat a climbing a tree

i heard claim hundreds came
to a thing they call a baseball game
Seaguard stores revolving doors
Men wear sideburns and they aughta
cause a haircut costs a quarter

I just blew in from the windy city
the windy city is mighty purdy
But they aint got what we got
I'm telin you boys
I aint a swopping half a deadwood
for the whole of illanoise

That's far more likely to be 'Cigar stores' (you know, the ones with the wooden indian outside?) than 'Seaguard Stores'. Especially as the received 'wild west' pronounciation of 'cigar' would be 'see-gar' with the sylables equally stressed.
