Chicago Stand Up

by The Aragon Family, Rebecca Boelzner, Quinn Delaney, John Heffernan, Alexandria Hoffman, and Laura Pitkin


Young Izzy on the track
Chicago, stand up!

Chicago stand up, stand up, stand up,
Call my mamma just to say “what’s up”?
Chicago stand up, stand up, stand up,
Young Izzy’s still here so smile, look up
Basketball, loved it all, always havin’ fun
Teddy bear, always there, mamma’s favorite son.

Enchiladas made by mom, family first I’ll never be gone
Always callin’ twice a day, that was just young Izzy’s way
Love ya Mom, love ya Dad, Annette and Dahlia, too
Don’t be cryin’, I’ll be fine, I’m right here with you

Tomorrow is a new day, tomorrow is a new day (x4)
Chicago stand up, stand up, stand up,
Call my mamma just to say “what’s up”?
Chicago stand up, stand up, stand up,
Young Izzy’s still here so smile, look up

Called at one and six and ten, just ‘cause he liked checkin’ in
After work hangin’ with dad, watchin’ movies always glad
His dog, Ace, number one, best friends havin’ fun
Family, food, Ace, basketball, Izzy loved ‘em all

Tomorrow is a new day, tomorrow is a new day (…)
Chicago stand up, stand up, stand up,
Call my mamma just to say “what’s up”?
Chicago stand up, stand up, stand up,
Young Izzy’s still here so smile, look up
