Riffing on Michigan Avenue. It's a Chicago staple.


Little pretty people on Michigan Ave.
Smiling cuz they're high-rising
Every indication says they're not half bad
I don't really know they're not inviting me
To their party in their penthouse Christmas Eve

Dainty dukes are smoking their cigarettes
Men in top hats, women in short skirts
Tawny hair and underwear and minds to clear
What's exciting is they're inviting me
To the cougar's den to come again and again and again

There's a sun ahead...
Telling me I'm not dead

Alabaster cityscapes I feel high
Like a Hancock on the north block
Michigan in all its glam can sometimes be
A one-way street without hands and feet
Just to ride around and feel real rich

There's a sun...

Listen to the rain on your windowpane
It's pulse is constant like your thumb
And it feels like we've only just begun
And what's going on is going on...

There's a sun...
Though the storm is ripe, the storm is tight
Storm it might, but you are with me tonight
