We will honor the family who gave it

We will not allow eminent domain

An open space this garden shall remain

There’s a garden to save and we’ll save it.

We’re not prone to fighting but we’ll brave it.

There must be another space for new fields

From demolition this place we will shield

There’s a garden to save and we’ll save it.

Oh no! We will not let you pave it.

This too is a place for children learning

The school board’s proposal we are spurning

There’s a garden to save and we’ll save it.

We will honor the family who gave it

There’s a garden to save and we’ll save it.
