One of our favorite songs about one of our favorite places!

Saturday morning and the rain is pouring (drip, drop)
Dad worked late last night, he’s in there snoring
Same old stuff on TV, boring
So what if I can’t go out and play, I know what I’ll do today:

(Chorus:)
Oh, I’m going down to the library
Picking out a book, check it in, check it out
Gonna say Hi to the dictionary
Picking out a book, check it in, check it out

Now, I like books and they like me, so when I go to the library
I sit down in my favorite chair and check to see who’s there
Maybe one book, maybe two. “Take me home,” says Winnie The Pooh,
“And if we have to travel far, I’ll bring my honey jar.”

(Chorus)

Sleeping Beauty yawned and said, “I’ll come when I get out of bed.”
But Madeline says, “Let her nap!” and jumps into my lap
The Cat in the Hat says, “Hey, I’ll go” “Don’t take him”, cries Pinocchio
“Don’t take that cat to your address, he always makes a mess.”

(Chorus)

(Bridge:)
Mrs. Parker’s back behind the checkout desk today
The Cheshire Cat jumps on her head and says, “Let’s play!”
But Mrs. P. says “Goodness, are you sure you want all these?”
“Oh yes!” we shout together. She says, “Shhh! Quiet please!”

(Chorus)

The Seven Dwarfs begin to shout, “Say, take us with you, check us out!”
Then Cinderella gets her gown and Babar grabs his crown
Then Curious George swings from the shelf; along comes Mother Goose herself
Down the rows we danced and sang - The whole library rang!

(Chorus)
