Schilling-Show-70s-Logo-150x150Performance activist Scott Bandy, aka The Blue Spade, takes us on a trip down to Fry’s Spring: the cradle of Charlottesville “snob” zoning and NIMBYism, where wealthy elitists wish to cleanse the neighborhood through an abrogation of property rights.

Fry’s Spring Wants Corrective Zoning is sung to the tune of the George Straight’s, All My Exes Live in Texas, with lyrical adaptation by The Blue Spade. This song was performed live on The Schilling Show on Friday, August 15, 2014.

Fry’s Spring Wants Corrective Zoning (in the style of George Straight)
Lyrics by Scott Bandy

Fry’s Spring wants corrective zoning
That City Hall frown on as so exclude-able
Yet Fry’s Spring wants consistent zoning
It’s more about the unrelated per rent-able

The Neighborhood Association
Disavows the term downzone
The un-expect affects ever
remain ruddy unknown
Farrugio and Mister Joe
drew contrasts on the FM dial
And Ms Smith who live on the circle
contends with guarded denial

Fry’s Spring wants corrective zoning
That City Hall frowns on as so exclude-able
Yet Fry’s Spring wants consistent zoning
It’s more about the unrelated per rent-a-able

I recall West Main without the West Flats
Or the World of Beer
But spandex bikers have hacked control
Of the *CIP and steer
By Delphi Technique to assuage
What’s the public’s pulse
But shake and wake your self back up
To what’s the real crux

Fry’s Spring wants corrective zoning
That City Hall frowns on as so exclude-able
Yet Fry’s Spring wants consistent zoning
It’s more about the unrelated per rent-a-able

This don’t just regard students
It isn’t all about the realtors
No it’s who unrelated per rent-able
