  Liner Notes






Come on, baby, donít you wanna go?
Come on, baby, donít you wanna go?
Back to that same old place: sweet home Chicago.

All the way to Mt. Zion,
Iíll get bitched out by them barred-window boys
Decrying my senseless violence
Over the bambulence sirenís noise.

Iíll just say, ďCome on, little babies,
I know that you wanna go
Back to that Second City place: sweet home Chicago.Ē

Itíll be morning outside the ER.
Doc Green sews up the conductor.
That guy turns out the only survivor
Of ďThe Amtrack Massacre.Ē

So why donít you come on, friend-boy?
Babe, I know you wanna go
Back to that Windy City place: sweet home, old Chi-Town-o.

The death toll was feared to be 14,
But 10 will be more like the sum.
I know, Iíll make out all right now (though
Itíll feel weird to not have my gun),

ĎCause Iím gonna be as famous as Oprah
As soon as my scalp's skin heals.
Itís back to that Babyllnoisan place: sweet home Chicago.
Ra-ta-tat-tat-ta-tat-tat, now!
 
liner notes
The idea of hijacking/deconstructing a well-known standard originally came to us via Violent Femmes’ insidious cover of “Do You Really Want To Hurt Me?” Robert Johnson probably rolls in his grave, but maybe Sunnyland Slim might’ve enjoyed some of these “kiss bang” theatrics.
