Lyrics
Oh baby, don't you want to go?
Oh baby, don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home, Chicago?

Oh baby, don't you want to go?
Oh baby, don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home, Chicago?

Now, one and one is two, two and two is four
I'm heavy loaded, baby, I'm booked, I got to go

Cryin', baby, honey, don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home, Chicago?

Now, two and two is four, four and two is six
You gon' keep on monkeyin' 'round here friend-boy
You gon' get your business all in a trick but I'm cryin'

Baby, honey, don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home, Chicago?

Now, six and two is eight, eight and two is ten
Friend-boy she trick you one time, she sure gon' do it again
But I'm cryin'

Hey, hey, baby, don't you want to go
To the land of California
To my sweet home, Chicago?

I'm goin' to California from there to Des Moines, Lowa,
Somebody will tell me that you need my help someday, cryin'

Hey, hey, baby, don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago?
