Access Management - The Musical

Abstract:

A fun, musical ending to the 2012 Access Management Conference.

Would you like to hear those songs again? put a note in the comments.

Here are the lyrics for Access Management – the Musical

I want to get thru (To the tune of Hello Mary Lou)

Passed me by one summer day,
Flashed those big headlights my way
And then I sat in one big traffic jam

I just want to get around
Not be stuck in this downtown
Oh no I hear a screech, slam bam and wham.

I said I want to get thru
try something new
This Access Management is overdue
(I just knew that this is cool)
I knew this is cool
I thought
we’d never start
This Access Management is so smart.

Saw your road, that median,
(Not just a chameleon)
Those conflict points were more than I can count
If those driveways go away,
Then I might get there some day
Before I need my retirement account.

I said I want to get thru
try something new
This Access Management is overdue
(I just knew that this is cool)
I knew this is cool
I thought
we’d never start
This Access Management is so smart.
is so smart.

Access Management
Is so overdue
Yes, Access Management
(is so smart)

Right from the start, I said
Access Management is so smart.
 

Upon the Sidewalk (To the tune of Under the Boardwalk)

Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar down on the road
and your tires get so hot
your car is at a stop – and you implode

Upon the sidewalk, in the city, yeah
On a roadway planned by Texas DOT

(Upon the sidewalk) A pedestrian
(Upon the sidewalk) walking havin’ some fun
(Upon the sidewalk) people driving along
(Upon the sidewalk) We’ll be singin’ this song
Upon the sidewalk, sidewalk!

As a bike goes by, the multi-modal option does propel
Mm-mm you can almost see the conflict points that don’t exist as well.
Upon the sidewalk, in the city, yeah
On a roadway planned by Texas DOT

(Upon the sidewalk) A pedestrian
(Upon the sidewalk) walking havin’ some fun
(Upon the sidewalk) people driving along
(Upon the sidewalk) We’ll be singin’ this song
Upon the sidewalk, sidewalk!

 

Raised Median - Run, Run, Run

Build on the city of roadways, a raised median

When it’s Planning Time down South

To the tune of Lone Prairie Tag

And if I die you can bury me
neath the western sky on the lone prarie

And if you plan, you can help me
Get to where I can, Texas DOT
 

Goodbye my roadway congestion
To the tune of "Goodbye My Coney Island Baby"

Goodbye my roadway congestion,
Farewell to conflict points.

My road is gonna be much safer

I’m gonna travel faster, and avoid a big disaster,

I drive a roundabout to get there
I love this access management
Goodbye

So long

Farewell for ever

Goodbye to conflict points…

 

We all fall for
a road that looks so neat
median of concrete
a road eleven feet
we drive along the street
 

Then we’ll join the
Army of engineers
To the bidders
While the public reconsiders

When it’s over
oh boy we get it good
Crashes past we then recall

 

Driveways, left turns, medians, please
Just don’t cut down any trees

 

We all just plan for.
Goodbye my roadway congestion,
Farewell to conflict points.

My road is gonna be much safer

I’m gonna travel faster, and avoid a big disaster,

I drive a roundabout to get there
I love this access management
Goodbye

So long

Farewell for ever

Goodbye to conflict points…

Goodbye to conflict points - The End
Bye, we hope you comprehend.

 

Can you feel the love tonight?

Loo loo…

There’s a calm surrender to the rush of day
when the heat of the rolling world can be turned away
An enchanted moment, and it sees me through
It’s enough for this road warrior just to be with you. And

Can you love your U-Turn now?
U-Turn It is not so bad.
It is true for this left turn wannabe
That I got so mad
Can you love your U-Turn now? OK
Yes you did suggest
that it helps me to get there sa-fely
it really works the best.

Loo loo…

There’s a time for everyone if they only learn,
that this access management moves us all in turn.

There’s a rhyme and reason
to Tex DOT
When the conflict points are gone
We get there more safely

Chorus
Yes it helps me to get there sa-fely
it really works the best. Loo Loo
