Song for Delray Beach: The “Village by the Sea”

We’re the Raging Grannies and we’re singing right out loud
To say six-story buildings in Delray can’t be allowed.
Let’s slow the growth and keep our town as sweet as it is now –
Our “village by the sea.”

CHORUS:
Bigger isn’t always better,
Bigger isn’t always better.
If we all join together we can save our Delray Beach –
Our village by the sea.

It isn’t right that those with cash can come into our town
And break up ethnic neighborhoods and tear old buildings down.
We want to stay the way we are – the greatest place around –
Our village by the sea.
CHORUS

We don’t want big tall buildings overshadowing our streets.
We need commissioners who understand that small is sweet.
We need a master plan that slows the growth so we can save
Our village by the sea.
CHORUS
