The Lights Are Much Brighter There

This is my Christmas card to the city of Chicago.

This is not your typical Christmas sing-a-long...
In fact the pictures are Christmas
But the music is not.
(Clearing throat)

You may want to right click here
and open in a new tab
so you can sing along!

When you're alone
and life is making you lonely
you can always go 

When you've got worries
all the noise and the hurry
seems to help,
I know.

Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city.
Linger on the sidewalk
where the neon signs are pretty.
How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go
Downtown, things'll be great when you're

 no finer place for sure,
Downtown, everything's waiting for you.
Don't hang around
And let your problems surround you

There are movie shows 
 Maybe you know
Some little places to go to
Where they never close.
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossanova

You'll be dancing with 'em too before the night is over.
Happy again.
The lights are much brighter there.
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go
where all the lights are bright.
Waiting for you tonight.
You're gonna be alright, now.


And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you.

Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand
guide them along

Maybe I'll see you there.
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares,
And go
Things'll be great when you're
Don't wait a minute more.
Everything's waiting for you.

I just love your posts. :-) And isn't Wicked amazing?! (saw it in POrtland OR)

BTW - my Christmas gift to the world is that I will not be singing along. You all can thank me later.

What a lovely Christmas-y tour you gave us tonight! Makes me want to bundle up and come for a visit if my poor California thermostat could handle it!
Thank you for your lovely funny little visit. You put a smile on my face and you're absolutely right. Today is better and tomorrow will be better still!
Happy Holidays!
