"The Brick Hotel"
Following are the lyrics to "The Brick Hotel" song, written by Sky Brady of Georgetown and Pat Boland of Philadelphia:
What they'd say
16 miles from anywhere and it still stands
Built in 1836 our people know it well
The oldest building on the Circle
Known as the Brick Hotel"
It at all
The other side says leave it up
Put away that wrecking ball
But both sides know it's a part of our
To be enjoyed by the young and old
So please let it be"
Please don't act in haste
We welcome a Chancery Court
But in some other place
If we just compromise things will work
Then we can bury the hatchet
Outside the Brick Hotel"
Don't destroy Georgetown
It's the pride of Delaware
Something we can all share"
