It may have been my best or only friend
A first edition of exquisite composition
Please allow me just to sit right down and read
Of vaudeville families, they're the bees knees

Read to yourself or read aloud
Read all alone or in a crowd
Read in the rain or in the snow
Read on a break or on the go

Read, read, read a book and see
You might find out just who you want to be
Read, read, read a book to me
Way up high in a house up in a tree
(Kings and Queens and Superhero things)
(One plus one plus one it equals three)

Use your blueish-brownish eyes
Find a book, get lost inside
Alice fell into a hole
Your adventure to be told
Crack the spine and make it mine
Pop a squat for story-time
Like Peter Pan to Captain Hook
The best man wins in every book

Those children raised with fractions
And the chemical reactions
So refractive and attractive and intelligently active
Say what? (Right there!)
Oh that? (Yeah, that!)
It's nothing, just a scratch
Cause I got the itch to read a book
And scratched so hard, it never took


from Our First Five Years, released September 1, 2014
from Hey! Yeah! Yay! (Music for Parents and Kids), released 07 May 2012
written, performed, and produced by David Arnold; additional vocals and ridiculousness by the Lee Kids (Solomon, Oliver, and Clementine)
