Song Title: MY LIBRARY
Band: The Renewals
Fogler Library Band
1)Two students, Erin and Cassie, are sitting on a bench on the mall
(Erin laments to the tune of "Danny Boy":)
Oh, woe is me! I have so many papers due,
Where will I find the info that I need?
Is there a place where all my cares can disappear
Where can I go, and know that I'll succeed?
(vamp with tempo change to upbeat, Cassie sings, continuing with "Danny Boy" with a swing beat:)
Yes, there's a place with everything you're looking for
There's so much more than you'd think could be in store
(Erin again - back to slower tempo)
Then take me there, just what could we be waiting for?
(Cassie back to upbeat tempo)
Go grab your MaineCard and I'll show you more!
2)Students move down mall toward Library
(Modulation fanfare to Cassie selling the Library to the tune of "Ain't She Sweet". During vamp, Erin asks Cassie stuff like, "Where is this place? - Tell me more!" "Is it far from here?":)
Come with me! We'll go to Fogler Library!
And I'll show all the things awaiting you
3)The Renewals on front steps as a Band with instruments etc
All for free.
Let's not wait! Don't even think to hesitate.
You can ace your papers, find the books you need
Piece of cake!
4) They move inside the Library
Just check out books in Circulation,
These folks will help your situation
5)Renewals pop up from behind Circ Desk
Come get your course reserves!
Bear in mind, everything you need to find
Can be found right here in good ol' Fogler
Come with me! There is so much more to see
There are little cubbies all around to study
6) Shot of Oakes Cafe
In the Oakes, you can drink lattes and cokes
Take a break and just take time to socialize
7) Montage of Reference and Science areas
The folks in Reference treat you with deference
When you need info to make the difference
Wikipedee can't compare!
Just upstairs, Science and Engineering's there
And the answers to your specialized needs they will
8) Montage/shots of other locations in the library
Need to borrow a laptop, headphones or a camcorder?
Fogler Library can fill your order
Children's book and movies, too!
Bear in mind, and you won't be left behind
Everything I need I'll find it at Fogler
Library! uh-huh! Come with me! oh yeah! to the Li- bra-ry!
(Back to Danny Boy for Erin's "conversion testimony"):
9) The students are back outside on the Library steps for the finish
So here I am - and everything's within my reach!
I've found the place where all the answers lie.
It's here in Fogler, my sweet Fogler Library
Just bear in mind - I'll love you til I die!
