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
