Affordable Housing Week theme song contest

The WT house band, Two Turntables and a Micro House, reunited for the Housing Development Consortium‘s 2018 Affordable Housing Week theme song contest.

We won’t give too much away because we know that you want, you really, really want to see what we came up with this year! Watch the video above.

Lyrics:

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want
I want a roof
I want a door
I want a home
I can afford
I wanna really really really wanna build ‘em right now!

Wanna better future? Reflect on the past
More aff-ord-ab-le units, we need them fast
Now don’t go wasting this precious time
Let’s get our act go together.. we could be just fine.

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want
I want a roof
I want a door
I want a home
I can afford
I wanna really really really wanna build ‘em right now!

Can you imagine our city – with housing for all (with housing for all)
Houses full of families – and that’s not where it ends
Can you imagine our city – known not just for rents
Building’s the beginning but that’s not where it ends

So whatcha think about that?
Let’s get those upzones in place
Yes you can build next to me, there’s space for real! (space for real)
Let’s get creative, give this a try
Let’s provide some housing and increase sup-ply!

I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want
I want a roof
I want a door
I want a home
I can afford
I wanna really really really wanna build ‘em right now!

Let’s build lots more houses, We can make them nice (make them nice)
Look at this one I made, I’m Construction Spice
Can you imagine our city – known not just for rents
Building’s the beginning but that’s not where it ends

So here’s a story from A to Z
Wanna help the homeless, gotta listen carefully
MFTE – is a solid policy
MHA – HEY! we agree fully
Teeny houses don’t appear magically – (at least not for me)
And as for WT, well you’ll see
Put your doubts down and turn it all around
Put your doubts down and turn it all around


We’re proud to announce that we are the winners of the theme song contest for the second year in a row! Affordable Housing Week
