At the GFW PRSA Luncheon on April 9, Andra Bennett, APR shared a quick song promoting PR accreditation with the Greater Fort Worth Chapter of PRSA, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the APR. Please see below for the lyrics and the YouTube video.
Tune: I’ve Got You Under My Skin
I’ve got you – after my name
I’ve got you – proving I know P.R.
those 3 little letters known as the A.P.R.
I’ve got you – after my name!
I tried so not to give in
I said to myself the studying never will go so well
But why should I try to resist, when baby I know so well
I want you … after my name.
I would sacrifice anything come what may
just to say that I’ve been endorsed
By our Society – that I’m known to be
an outstanding professional force
Don’t you know you little fool, you can pass that exam
Use your mentality, step up!
Show your credibility
It’s the mark of our trade
Says that you’ve got it made
So don’t stop… get into the game
You should have APR … after your name
I’d sacrifice anything come what may
for the APR on my resume
And the frame would look great on my office wall
And my colleagues would stop nagging me….
Don’t you know little fool, you’re the cream of the crop
You’re already one of the best
Now if you’d only take the test
And each step that you make, the review you will take
Makes me know –you won’t be the same
Cause you’ll have A-P-R after your name
Put it on your signage – it’s ok to be vain…
Go ahead and flaunt it…. You deserve the fame.
Put it in lights!
