Cybernet and Rolling Stone
broadcasting this shit live on your computer now
[And into your home.]
Jam TV is gonna be there, too
you're gonna watch this shit,
it's gonna look like a Godzilla film,
'cause it's jerky as hell,
but that's okay...

the windy city
it's not very windy today
last time I was here I went
to the Army Navy Surplus Store
and I bought me a little green hat
that I wear every day

Scott's mother lives here
Wesley Willis lives here
Liz Phair lives here
the Pope doesn't live here
the Pope doesn't live here
who cares...
if the Pope really lives here

But this isn't going nowhere;
It just feels pretty to play
So I'll stop,
And we'll start the next song
Before someone tells me to shut the fuck up

Chicago, Chicago
I love you

Cybercastin' around the whole-wide fuckin' world!


3 known live performances.
First performed: 2002-03-02 - Vic Theatre, Chicago, IL, USA.

This was first improvised by Ben Folds Five live in Chicago when their gig was being Cybercast by Rolling Stone online and Jam TV.

The reference to 'Godzilla' was made because the gig was shortly after they had contributed the song 'Air' to the soundtrack for the new 'Godzilla' film.
