Guilderland, New York Now Has An Official Song-Your Town Thursday [AUDIO]
In order to write a decent town theme song you need decent information, and thanks to Kathy Burbank of the Guilderland Chamber Of Commerce, I got it. Thanks, Kathy. Now let's commence with yet another Your Town Thursday song
It's amazing how much Guilderland, NY has grown in the 30 years since I've lived in this area. Malls, housing developments, nano technology structures - it's truly a the suburban "vibe", but still retains a certain rural charm as well.
These two photos definitely demonstrate that fact!
Their website is very complete and shows you a lot more of what this town has to offer. The only thing they seem to be missing is a "jingle", so I thought I would help. This is a parody of Joe Diffie's "Pickup Man"
Here we go, Guilderland. Here's your song
Lyrics ©2012 Richie Phillips All Rights Reserved
Let me tell ya bout a suburb truly got it all
Stuyvesant plaza and the crossgates mall where else can you find not one but two malls
Styvesant plaza for years has been around
Crossgates is bigger than my childhood town
If you wanna play golf well here you surely can
There's something for everyone in Guilderland
There's an old school bar that's there by the way
You've seen the sign for it. The Side Door Cafe
If you wear shorts and flip flops. Noone will care
In fact you might be the best dressed girl there
Robinsons Hardware for the handy man
Yea there's something people LOVE about Guilderland
If your jones in for a burger now they have five guys
And if your watching you figure. TCBY
YOU HAVE TO CHECK OUT CREO that's some classy grub
And also the home of 3 country clubs
And. Nano tech behemoth that noone understands
Their makin little bitty things in GUILDERLAND
For playground or sports - 7 Town parks
With bands and concerts and movies after dark
There's one piece of land called the pine bush preserve
You'll get your butts arrested if it gets disturbed
A big library, that’s what’s planned
Better watch out for the cops in Guilderland
