Friday Night Forgotten Oldie: I’m a winner baby!

College Student Voting: How to Vote While You're in College | USF Admissions

This week’s oldie is from “Chicago XI,” the final studio album to feature the original seven band members. Shortly after the album’s 1977 release founding member Terry Kath (guitar/vocals) accidentally and fatally shot himself. “Chicago XI” was also the last time the band worked with producer extraordinaire James William Guercio.

Singer Robert Lamm who plays piano and the famous Hammond organ makes all sorts of crazy promises in order to get elected. “The Voices of Inspiration” choir makes a guest appearance.

Vote for me, vote for me
I want the nomination for the Presidency
Vote for me, vote for me
If I am elected, this is how it will be.

I’ll cut your tax in half
I’ll make the Russians laugh
I’ll feed the hungry people everywhere.

I’ll bring the railroads back
New trains and new track
From Waikiki to old Delaware.

Vote for me, vote for me
I want the nomination for the Presidency
Vote for me, vote for me
If I am elected, this is how it will be.

I’ll give Detroit one year
New cars that run on beer
Or anything except gasoline.

I’m looking to the sun
More power for everyone
And the cleanest sky that you’ve ever seen.

I’m not going to kid you, there’s a lot to do
Little can I promise, it’s really up to you
But if we all work together
And I think we can
And if you want some new ideas
Then I’m your man


Vote for me, vote for me
I want the nomination for the Presidency
Vote for me, vote for me
If I am elected, this is how it will be


I’ll work for global peace
And the sweet release
Of the love and human kindness in us all
I would give all I’ve got
You just give me a shot
Somehow, I know that I can win in the fall.
