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

Lyrics by: Vicki Ryder
Gaggle: RochesterSoFlo
Tune: Solidarity Forever

We’re the Raging Grannies and we’re singing right out loudTo 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.

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.

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.
