Too Many Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium, Independence, MO

October 2018

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos



Play track to begin




HEY!

Too many chiefs

Not enough victories

If you want to see some sin, forget Paris and head to Kansas City.

Give a cheer for Kansas City

Loud and clear for Red and Gold

As our Chiefs march on to victory

Like our mighty teams of old





Show me state

BBQ Capital of the World

Jazz Capital of the World

Killa City

Hey People Gather Round

Clap your hands, stomp your feet on the ground

It’s time for football and BBQ

Tailgating parties and ice cold brew

I love this city

Kansas City, I love You!

We fight over the best BBQ in town

The burnt ends and potato casserole from Arthur Bryant’s

The pulled pork and brisket sandwiches from Joe’s

The slab ribs and yammer pie from Gates

Gotta get the Pig Ear sandwich with greens on the side at Niecie’s

Each Kansas Citizen has their own pick






THE LOUDEST FANS THE GAMES EVER KNOWN

A REBEL YELL AS WE’RE GOING FOR TWO
