GLASCOCK'S ISLAND: Castaways stranded in a CoMo snow

Starring Mayor McDavid, city manager Matthes, city public works director Glascock, and our Columbia castaways
 
Set to the theme from Gilligan's Island.  Listen here:
 
 
Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
A tale of an unsafe trip
That started from this CoMo street, aboard this family car.
 
The dad was a mighty steering man, mother brave and sure,
With children they set out that day
For a short downtown drive.
A short downtown drive.
 
The weather had been getting rough,
The city hadn't plowed.

If not for the courage of the fearless crew,
The auto would be lost.
The auto would be lost.
 
The car struck ground on the shoulder of an unplowed street near Gerbes.
 
With Mom n' Dad...
The Children too...

The Mayor....
And his staff...

The manager...

The director and Councilman....

Here on Glascock's Isle!
 
So this is the tale of our cast-aways,
They're stuck for a long long time
They'll have to get back home in ice,
It's an uphill climb.

The children and their parents too
Will do their very best,
To make the family comfortable in their snowbound roadside rest.

No car! No lights!
No Mediacom!
Not a single luxury...
With CPS out another day, it's primitive as can be!
 
So join us here each year my friend
You may not get a smile...
From several stranded cast-aways
 
Here on Glascock's Isle!
