Community Forklift

August 6, 2013 2:26 PM

Community Forklift is a local non-profit salvage place. They had a jingle contest. My entry came in "a very close second", as voted by their staff. So I guess that means they don't really care about that unlimited license. Vocals by the velvety-voiced Ms. Sharon Raquel. We wanted to try this in a lower key, but ran into the deadline.

Community Forklift Jingle (You Never Know What You'll Find)

You never know what you'll find at Community Forklift
It's a salvage gold mine, Community Forklift
Someone had to tear down their house,
They put the spare parts in our warehouse
Spend a while, browse the aisles,
Community Forklift

Repeat, changing middle two lines to:

We've got everything you seek
Open ev'ry single day of the week

Spare your wallet, make the scene
While helping keep the planet green

Now I'm sure you get the story
We mark down our inventory

Ad lib:

I don't know what I just bought...gonna use it for a flowerpot

They've got everything I think, even including the kitchen sink

Checkin' out that mantlepiece, gonna put in the front room, and curl up by the fire with my baby (talk about sustainable lifestyles!)

Hang this chandelier right here, and then dim the lights my dear. Got 'em at the forklift.

Remember how we first met? I was going through a pile of reclaimed tile...and you said you liked my smile

You never know what you'll find - that's for sure, for sure, for sure.
Community Forklift - pick it up, pick it up.
Community Forklift - higher and higher...(fade)

This is amazing. I looked up Community Forklift immediately upon hearing this, so.. it works!

Thanks for the cheer - makes up for the loss. They said there was a pretty good debate - haven't heard the other song yet, but I'm sure it's great.

That link for anyone curious: They do have a remarkable collection of who-knows-what.

If I lived in the same state (or country) I would totally pay a visit. I love me some salvage yards. Now I'm really curious to hear the other song.
