lyrics

There's a bird's eye view from the top of the Sears Tower
And the Hancock Building is a jealous middle child
And plastic bags float high, high above the loop
And parrots cross the Illinois skies.
And the chilly winds off Lake Michigan
Will blow your feathers through the air again
Loose ones fall into little girls' hands
It's warmer far away from here
Where the ice and snow won't be among your fears
Florida sunshine is gold
But the Windy City's home
Turning tourists' heads
A flash of green when they expected grey instead
And shivering in nests high in the leafless trees
And for those that live round Hyde Park
They know your call in the mornings
And your cry in the dark
And they smile when they see you floating on the breeze
And the chilly winds off Lake Michigan
Will blow your feathers through the air again
Loose ones fall into little girls' hands
It's warmer far away from here
Where the ice and snow won't be among your fears
Florida sunshine is gold
But the Windy City's home
