Lincoln Park Pirates
from the Steve Goodman LP "Somebody Else's Troubles"

AmDm Am
The streetlamps are on in Chicago tonight,
Dm   C
And lovers a'gazin' at stars;
DmAm  DmAm
The stores are all closin', and Daley is dozin',
    Dm  Em
And the fat man is counting the cars...
              Am            Dm       Am
And there's more cars than places to put 'em, he says,
     Dm                     C
But I've got room for them all;
Dm  Am    Dm      Am
So 'round 'em up boys, 'cause I want some more toys,
        Dm                  Em
In the lot by the grocery store...

Chorus
  Am   Em    Dm      Am
To me, way, hey, tow them away,
     Dm                       C
The Lincoln Park Pirates are we,
Dm  Am     Dm Am
>From Wilmette to Gary, there's nothin' so hairy
        Dm                 Em
And we always collect our fee!
   Am   Em    Dm      Am
So it's way, hey, tow 'em away,
    Dm                         C
We plunder the streets of your town,
      Dm     Am    DmAm
Be it Edsel or Chevy, there's no car too heavy,
     Em   Am
And no one can make us shut down.

We break into cars when we gotta,
With hammer and pickaxe and saw;
And they said this garage had no license;
But little care I for the law!
Our drivers are friendly and courteous;
Their good manners you always will get;
'Cause they all are recent graduates
Of the charm school in Joliet.

To me, way, hey, tow them away,
The Lincoln Park Pirates are we,
>From Wilmette to Gary, there's nothin' so hairy
And we always collect our fee!
So it's way, hey, tow 'em away,
We plunder the streets of your town,
Be it Edsel or Chevy, there's no car too heavy,
And no one can make us shut down.

And when all the cars are collected,
And all of their fenders are ruined,
Then I'll tow all the boats in Belmont Harbor
To the Lincoln Park Lagoon;
And when I've collected the ransom,
And sunk all the ones that won't yield;
I'll tow all the planes that are blocking the runways
At Midway, O'Hare, and Meigs Field!

To me, way, hey, tow them away,
The Lincoln Park Pirates are we,
>From Wilmette to Gary, there's nothin' so hairy
And we always collect our fee!
So it's way, hey, tow 'em away,
Now citizens, gather around,
And I think it's enough, let's call his bluff,
Let's throw the bum out of town!
