Mom died in childbirth

Maybe illegitimate

Orphanages suck


Picked up by a cop

Another boy abandoned

A ward of the state


Elwood taken in

By Jake, his new big brother

Change their names to "Blues"


Raised by God and nuns

A Catholic upbringing

They learn to raise Hell


Brothers not by blood

Learned music in a basement

Whipped by a Penguin


Black suit and white shirt

They too dress like the Penguin

But with sunglasses


Like a real father

The janitor named Curtis

Gave them both some booze


In and out of jail

They're such a disappointment

To Sister Mary


Out there in the world

They live their lives for music

Cheap booze and women


One drove cars too fast

The other loved fast women

Both broke down easy


Jake lands in the slam

Robbed for a room service bill

Gun wasn't loaded


Now the band has split

And Elwood trades the Caddy

For a microphone


In for three to five

He's out on good behavior

Best keep his cot warm


Illinois Nazis

They hate Illinois Nazis

Run them off a bridge


Nothing but bad luck

Elwood was stopped for speeding

He knew they had SCMODS


Tries to outrun them

No way back to the highway

He drives through a mall


Chat with the penguin

Need money for back taxes

A mission from God


Jake needs just a day

She won't take dirty money

Hits them with ruler


Need the cash real fast

From God they get the answer

Reunite the band


Matt "Guitar" Murphy

His old lady is angry

She tells him to think


Magictones join too

No candy ass monkey suits

No Ramada Room


Mr. Fabulous

He likes his high paying gig

He quits to play horns


With used equipment

The band is back together

Ray takes IOUs


The fat sound is back

It turns goat piss into gas

But they need a gig


Bob's Country Bunker

They've got Country and Western

Both kinds of music


Good Ole Boys are mad

They drive a Winnebago

Got no union cards


Maury books a gig

The Palace Hotel Ballroom

The hall is a barn


Quick advertising

Out of gas they're out of time

Elwood makes a date


They're late for the gig

They stop to sabotage cars

Elwood thinks ahead


Can't get past the cops

Go through the ladies bathroom

Jake peeks into stalls


Troopers and Nazis

Parole officer waits too

Orange Whips for three


A few quick numbers

They get the cash and escape

Bluesmobile awaits


Stood up at the church

Jake's fiancé is angry

Now she wants revenge


It wasn't his fault

He was detained by locusts

Jake lifts an eyebrow


A full tank of gas

Dark, they're wearing sunglasses

Jake tells him "Hit it!"


Back to Chicago

Must pay taxes by morning

High speed chase ensues


They outrun the law

Police cars don't stand a chance

Elwood pulls over


Sweet Home Chicago

They're almost at the courthouse

There's a Picasso


Ask for directions

Muzak in elevator

Still one step ahead


Blockade door with desk

The Assessor's still at lunch

Back in five minutes


SWAT Team has arrived

All available units

The boys are unarmed


Tax receipt in hand

The brothers are arrested

Not Elwood's handcuffs


Orphanage is saved

Mission from God completed

Can't pay for lawyers


In and out of jail

Revolving door of justice

Two recidivists
