"Who Runs The City"
To The Tune Of: "In The City"
By: The Eagles

There's a lady, in the city with a new Harpo sign
A little chubby but she's kinda pretty
Next week she'll be screwing up the bus lines

Transit survival in the city, on Michigan Ave. come Labor Day
Waiting for a bus is when I wrote this "little ditty"
This lady and Daley take limousines anyway and don't have to pay
Who runs the city, in Chicago, now we all know who runs the city

I have to work here in the city, On the CTA I spend all my dimes
Snapping her fingers like Al Capone and Frank Nitti
Hope Gayle and Stedman get some TV time

Now this lady in the city, with the neon Harpo sign, guess it pays to be a
With Daley and you, can Jessie be far
behind? "The three stooges defined."

Who runs the city in Chicago,
Now we all know who runs the city.
