Inventing the Future; Whenever We READ!

We're reading in the library,


We're reading in the car,


We're reading in a spaceship,


Heading towards a star.


We're reading of the past


And that plants a seed;


Inventing the future,


Whenever we READ!

We're reading of the past and that plants a seed;


Inventing the future whenever we read.


Cowboys riding across our country's face,


Soon become astronauts riding into space.

We're reading of the past and that plants a seed;


Inventing the future whenever we read.


Reading of sailors on an unknown sea,


They built America, a land for you and me.

We're reading of the past and that plants a seed;


Inventing the future whenever we read.


Reading of Edison, inventors long ago,


Now there's software to teach us what we know.

We're reading in the library,


We're reading in the car,


We're reading in a spaceship,


Heading towards a star.


We're reading of the past


And that plants a seed;


Inventing the future,


Whenever we READ!
