Lyrics: Brian Risk, Billy McCormick
Music: Brian Risk
It's Carrboro was born when local singer-songwriter Billy Sugarfix (Evil Wiener) complained to me that he hated venturing outside of the town of Carrboro. The song debuted March 11th on WCOM and since then has been requested to be played at some Carrboro events.
At least one person has expressed confusion over the "tone" of the song. What do you think, readers of BlueNC? Is the song hatin' or is it giving props?
It’s a place where the hippies and the hipsters meet
Gonna get my grub on at the Weaver Street
Hoola-hoopers out front and they got some bare feet
Got a lot of bongo drummers and a lot of different beats
For the prez I want Dennis Kucinich
Wootini got a lot of funky toyz
If you disrespect you betta bring ya boyz
You know you gonna check my stance, my poize
C’mon Carrboro, let’s make some noize!
If it’s locally owned: It’s Carrboro!
Oganically grown: It’s Carrboro!
Your heart will warm: It’s Carrboro!
Got that hometown charm: It’s Carrboro!
Raleigh and Durham and Fayetville
If it ain’t in Carrboro it aint worth my skill
I won’t even go to Chapel Hill
My momma cools her pies on the window-sill
Vis to the Art to the Video
Blockbuster; Pay-Per-View; Netflix: NO!
The Viz got the foreign flicks from Hong Kong
Over 21 room to get your freak on
It’s Sunday night; sportin’ my bling bling
With wide bike lanes: It’s Carrboro!
And whole wheat grains: It’s Carrboro!
Who’s the best in show: It’s Carrboro!
Where you wanna go: It’s Carrboro!
It passed the test, it’s passed the rest.
Like Ron Jeremy Carrboro’s been blessed!
We’re cookin’ music so good the Cat’s Cradle meowed
Showin so much respect my sensei bowed
With public schools to make your momma proud
C’mon Carrboro let’s shout out loud!
Club nova thrift store: It’s Carrboro!
Who could ask for more: It’s Carrboro!
Where we dropped this jam: It’s Carrboro!
