O Extravaganza! The Great Extrav Reunion Weekend & Capping Revue Revival [1993]

Windy City

Windy City

I reached the windy city on a Sunday
But I couldn't even buy a loaf of bread
I went without a drink, until the Monday
The weekends there are absolutely dead
I took myself a ride on the Kelburn Cable Car
They said I would see the city lights
But my walk down through the gardens was much more spectacular
And that was where I really saw the sights.

What next - yeah what next - what next
Everything's up to date in Windy City
They built a fancy aerodrome you know
They spend four million quid on it, the money flowed like jam
I asked the experts what it's for, they shut up like a clam
I hear it's for a feeder service out to Paraparam
And that's about as far as it will go - yes sir
That's about as far as it will go.

Everything's up to date in Windy City
It's better than a silent picture show
They've got a great big outhouse there, they call it Parlyment
From all around the country eighty members they are sent
They misrepresent the voters that they're s'pposed to represent
Someone ought to tell them where to go, yes sir,
Someone ought to tell them where to go.

Everything's up to date in Windy City
I heard the dames there really ain't so slow
There were lots of lovely sheilas so I moved into attack
But the latest blooming fashion is a thing they call the sack
It's really most confusing cos you can't tell front from back
Still I went about as far as I could go, yes sir,
He went about as far as he could go.
