When you're feeling sad or lonely, or you don't know what to do,
Maybe your best friend is home sick with the flu.
Or maybe you're just tired, or need something new,
To keep your mind occupied here's my advice to you.
Grad a book, grab a book, grab a book, grab a book today.
Take a look, in the book, take a look in the book I say.
Read a book, read a book, read a book, read a book okay.
And you'll find that your time will simply slip away.
A book can take you places that you may want to go.
A book can teach you things that you may want to know.
A book can make you happy, a book can make you glad.
A book can be the friend that you may want to have. So...
