I couldn't have done this alone.  There was help from a lot of Facebook folks on this little song, and I really appreciate it.   Now onto the song for the Albany County town of  Ravena, NY

My Ravena
(a town that aint too large)
it's the home
(of a Cement plant called Lafarge)
it's in Albany County
real fine folks live there
(f your a local )
last  names you will know
all related to  Persico
the dunkin donuts is the only chain that you're likely to  find there
If you live in Oak Brook Manor Apartments-you're in luck
Unless for some unknown reason - you can't stand ducks
all the folks are nice
two working traffic lights
3 gas stations and 4 banks
Ravena we love you
Village yard sale it's chock full
The Friendship Festival
Fori's store and so much more
Ravena you're so cool
(the village pool)
Some high school kids still gloat
about what they did with post it notes
I'd tell you more but I've gotta go
on the Sean and Richie Show
Hope you enjoyed this . If you do, please "like" it and leave your comments!  If you would like a song about YOUR town, leave that in the comments too!   Thanks
