The rotary in downtown Westborough is a subject of much discussion and annoyance. I wanted people to know that it's worth putting up with and why.

You take your life in your hands, I think we all agree
At the Rotary
It isn’t the first place anyone chooses be (unless maybe you’re picking up a pizza)
At the Rotary
Traffic’s increasing and it comes through town
The commute’s getting worse, and that can get you down
So I‘m gonna tell you how to get around in
The Rotary

First it isn’t crazy IF you’re kinda confused
Bout the rotary,
There are stop signs, yield signs and crosswalks too
(It ain’t a typicaL rotary)
There’s parallel parking, and some straight-on
Makes you wonder what planet you’ve landed on
But you’re not in space, look at the lines they’ve drawn
You’re at the rotary

First thing to remember – those in the circle have the right of way
Second thing to remember- once you’re in don’t stop or delay
You might think it’s nice to let someone go
But it’s not polite, cuz then the whole thing slows
You might make a friend, but you’ll make many foes
At the rotary

Round and Round and Round the traffic goes
At the Rotary
If you go around twice no one will know (just do it if you gotta pick up your shoes)
Just follow the rules in the previous verse
And don’t get upset if you get cursed
You might get in last, you might get out first
Cuz it’s a rotary

I want to remind you all of why it’s here
The Rotary
It might make you feel a little better, and things more clear
Bout the rotary
All roads feed through that single spot
Cuz the town was built next to Cedar Swamp
And instead of becoming a sea of asphalt
We’ve got the rotary

Which would you rather have?
The rotary
Cedar swamp cleans our air and water - you know what can’t do that?
The rotary
So we’ll just have to put up with it … .
