The Lyrics

No, it's not about what you think it's about, you dirty-minded people!
I can see
you suggest this book to me.
And you're so darn sure I'll read it today.

But it's gonna be long
so I'll put it away.

My patience gone.
There's no point in reading on.
Well, I picked it up just because of your dare.

But it's gonna be long
and you know I don't care.

Yes, it's gonna be long
and I've read all that I can.

Yes, it's gonna be long
and I think it's wrong
to be read by this man.

When you get to the end
just drop me a line.
I'll smile and say,
"The fun was not mine."
And you'll never know
darling, how I told that book goodbye...

I'm so bored I could cry!

Good lyrics, but I like long books. I read "Gone with the Wind" and couldn't put it down.

You need to wash your hands before picking up a book, 2Eagle. Chuckle chuckle smirk smirk.

This is so like my mum when my sister lent her 'The Da Vinci Code'!
