Levy Rap Says it All

Zoo employees and volunteers have been working hard to spread the word about the Zoo levy that will be on the ballot for Hamilton County voters next Tuesday.  You’ve probably seen us putting signs in yards or standing at intersections hoping you’ll honk to show your support.

When I got to my office this morning, I found a special campaign contribution from one of our volunteers on my desk.  It was a CD with this note attached…

Raven Alford – Levy Rap Composer

I created this “Renew The Zoo Rap” to further spread word of the 2013 Renew the Zoo Campaign.  As a former 2013 Summer intern and current volunteer, I wanted to do my part. Due to my busy hours with school I have been unable to help out  as much as I would have liked, so I decided to spread the message as best as I know how, through music.  Nothing sticks like a catchy song and I am presenting this “Renew the Zoo Rap” for the cause.

THANK YOU!!! HOPE YOU ENJOY!!!

The lyrics…

RENEW THE ZOO RAP by Raven Alford

Renew the zoo, vote yes on 2 (3x)

Animals depend on us, and we count on you! (They do, They do)

 

Renew the zoo, vote yes on 2 (3x)

Animals depend on us, and we count on you! (They do, They do)

 

Let’s get this straight and clear the air,

of the common misconceptions about this affair

a renewal, it will not raise your taxes,

it’s a renewal, only be towards the zoo if it passes,

for the animal’s food, care and their needs,

along with maintenance repairs if there’s a need,

the greenest zoo in America only want the best,

wildlife ambassadors who deserve nothing less,

all you have to do is check the yes,

on issue 2 for the levy to pass,

if animals could talk I’m sure they’d have much to say,

like thanks for supporting us on voting day!

 

Renew the zoo, vote yes on 2 (3x)

Animals depend on us, and we count on you! (They do, They do)

 

Renew the zoo, vote yes on 2 (3x)

Animals depend on us, and we count on you! (They do, They do)

 

Thank you so much for your support,

And if you’d like you can do more,

get a yard sign for all to see

our signs are compostable always Green

Thane Maynard has a vision for our success

for the animals, gardens, and the guests

an amazing place to learn and educate

never been to zoo? well it’s never too late

we are non-profit, AZA approved,

we have a lot to offer and always something new

so on November 5th, 2013een

check yes on 2 and let me hear you scream!

 

*Chorus Repeat*
