Lyrics to "The Night Chicago Died" song by Paper Lace: Daddy was a cop on the east side of Chicago Back in the USA, back in the bad old days In the heat . .In the heat of a summer night In the land of the dollar bill When the town of Chicago died And they talk about it still When a man named Al Capone Tried to make that town his own And he called his gang to war With the forces of the law. I heard my momma cry I heard her pray the night Chicago died Brother, what a night it really was? Brother, what a fight it really was? Glory be! I heard my momma cry I heard her pray the night Chicago died Brother, what a night the people saw? Brother, what a fight the people saw? Yes, indeed.
Paper Lace was forced to change up the lyrics a bit. They were later welcomed back to Chicago to perform. Paper Lace was the second music group in the history of the Palladium (in England) to perform there, the first was of course The Beetles.
