Would you like ‘L’ delays and cram?
Not during rush hour, Frankie man.
I do not like them on the ‘L’.
I do not like them very well.
I don’t like them in Rogers Park.
I don’t like them at Div and Clark.
To wait a half hour for the train,
In snow, or sleet, or wind, or rain,
To pack aboard a sardined car,
That limps me to my job afar,
While planning skills seem to be lacking,
Half your riders you send packing,
On Red, on Brown, on Purple, too,
I would not like that, Frank. Would you?
I would not like that here or there.
I would not like that anywhere.
I don’t like ‘L’ delays and cram.
I do not like them, Frank, you scam.
Now save us, please, oh Alderman.
