Lyrics: (by Andrew May & Barrett Martin)

Now this is a story all about how
Our lives got flipped-turned upside down
And we’d like to take a minute
Drs. Martin and May
We’ll tell you how we became the docs of a town called Fuquay…and Garner!

In West Willow Springs I was born and raised
On the ball field is where I spent most of my days
My interceptions record is still intact
Only problem is I played quarterback
Thought about a career, what I wanted to do
So I asked Dr. Bob, “Can I follow you?”
I fell in love right away, the eyes are so cool
But my parents said, “Boy, that’s a lot of school!!”
Met my wife in college, then I dropped the hammer
Said we gotta move away, gotta go to Alabama
Packed up the car for a 9 hour ride
Met some new friends who yelled “Roll Tide!”
4 years went by with Carolina on my mind
Then it was back to Wake County so you won’t go blind
That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it
And now let’s let Dr. May get to it

I was born in Texas, raised in Birmingham
I was 15 when I had my first eye exam
Went to get my permit at the DMV
They said, “Sorry sonny boy, but you just can’t see.”
I went to Dr. Amos to see what he knew
He took me to the window and asked for my view
“Well,” I replied, “I see the street and some trees.”
He chuckled and said, “Take a look through these.”
The trees had leaves and the signs had words
I couldn’t believe how bad my vision was blurred
Shadowed him my Junior year, it was totally rad
And several years later I was a UAB grad
Looking to settle, Carolina was far away
But I thought, ‘I’m excited, yo fam to Fuquay!’

We pulled up to Main Street about 7:58
And we yelled to UAB ‘Yo Blazers smell ya later’
We looked at our kingdom
We were on our way
To sit on our thrones as the Docs of Fuquay…and Garner!
