Lyrics

I used to work in Chicago, in a department store,
I used to work in Chicago. I did, but I don’t anymore.
A lady came in, and asked for some cake
I asked her what kind she’d adore–
“Layer,” she said, so layer I did
I don’t work there anymore.

I used to work in Chicago, in a department store,
I used to work in Chicago. I did, but I don’t anymore.
A lady came in, and asked for a fowl
I asked her what kind she’d adore–
“A goose,” she said, so I gave her a goose
I don’t work there anymore.

A lady came into the hat shop,
I asked, “What kind would you like?”
“Felt” she said, felt I did

A lady came in for a sleeper
I asked, “which berth would you like?”
“Upper” she said; Up ‘er I did

A lady came in for a waterbottle
I said, “what kind would you like?”
“Rubber ” she said; rub ‘er I did

A lady came in for a sweater
I asked, “what kind would you like?”
“Jumper, she said”; jump ‘er I did

A lady came in for a ticket
I asked, “Where would you like to go?”
“Bangor,” she said; bang ‘er I did
