A long, long time ago
I can still remember how the music store made me smile
buying music knick-knacks, and sheet music from soundtracks,
kept me out of trouble for awhile.
But 2018 made me feel morose
as more of Lakewood said “adios”.
Bad news on the Observation Deck…
another business shipwrecked.
I can’t remember if I cried
the moment that i realized
the sale on the land was finalized
the day Educators’ building died.
So bye, bye another building has died,
Drove my drumset to their doorstep, but the doorstep’s bye-bye
And Lakewoodites all just sit back and cry,
singing “Educators’ Music building’s goodbye.
Where will they open next? Guess we’ll standby.”
