Ross: No words for the West Seattle Bridge’s re-opening, only lyrics
Aug 26, 2022, 9:55 AM
I can’t tell you how happy I will be when the West Seattle Bridge is finally reopened. And I don’t even live there!
Nearly 900 days into its closure, the West Seattle Bridge’s reopening date becomes official
But it makes me want to sing. So, the heck with today’s commentary – let’s just break out the big hair and the bell bottoms:
We’ve been stuck on I-5 since I don’t know when
Wond’rin when that (BLEEP) bridge will be open again.
It’s been two years – will we ever learn?
Isn’t it clear, that unless you have strong concrete
Any bridge will be incomplete?
Just one crack and they will close the thing down
Then we’re back to driving all over town, Oh-oh-oh-oh
We are back again
Be brave, this is now or never.
Please don’t crack again
This bridge– has to last forever.
Bridges are so much better
When they can stick together.
My, my, I just cannot wait to go…
West Seattle, how I miss you so
This Bridge has to last forever!
No more detours – that is, unless it snows…
Ha ha, I’m just being clever.
West Seattle– it’s been really rocky
Let’s try – keepin’ it together.
No more crackin’ – unless we’re talking hockey
This bridge has to last forever.
With all your cables tightened
We’re only half as frightened.
Why why — did we ever let you go?
West Seattle we may never know…
You’ll be fine until it snows.
