Us! Among men!
In the plans of shifting lime
We! Stood beside!
A foundation of space and time

What! Would you say!
To a city build in Jackson Park
Electric castles and
A promise kept of highest art

In our white city
We'll stroll together
Streets of wax
Streets of plaster
Our white city
White with wonder
Heights of greatness and
Nights asunder

Down! To the wire!
Time is running out on our project
World! Look to us!
Find a model of what's not thought yet

How beautiful is beauty
When it's only temporary
A decade a century stands still
In the white city of our will

Raise! And be raised!
Our hands face up and our faces forward
Show us the beauty!
Show us where to aim our story

In our white city
We'll stroll together
Streets of wax
Streets of plaster
Our white city
White with wonder
Heights of greatness and
Nights asunder

In our white city
Of domes and girders
We can fall but
The fall won't hurt us
