A fun, musical ending to the 2012 Access Management Conference.

Would you like to hear those songs again? put a note in the comments.

Here are the lyrics for Access Management – the Musical

I want to get thru (To the tune of Hello Mary Lou)

Passed me by one summer day,
Flashed those big headlights my way
And then I sat in one big traffic jam

I just want to get around
Not be stuck in this downtown
Oh no I hear a screech, slam bam and wham.
